Passed away on November 11, 2022, at the age of 93. Carolyn was predeceased by her first husband, Hillel Leib Horn; and her second husband, Stephen David Sundell.

Carolyn was born in Philadelphia, PA to Gertrude and Isaac Seidel. She graduated from West Chester State College with a degree in health and physical education and taught physical education and health in Philadelphia prior to relocating with her first husband to Rochester, NY. Carolyn worked at the JY for several years and later ran the health office at St James and Laurleton Schools in East Irondequoit. She loved being with her family, (especially at the annual Thanksgiving extravaganzas), a good game of bridge or scrabble with her friends in Rochester, at the Summit or formerly in Boca Del Ray, Florida, and she could have been a contender on Jeopardy.

She is survived by her brother Donald (Lela) Seidel; her children, David (Nona) Horn, Jonathan (Sherri) Horn, Nancy Horn (Chuck Doerflinger), Ellen (David) Merrill, Susan (Bruce) Hanley, Amy (James) Milstein, Robert (Gina) Sundell; 15 grandchildren; and 4 great-grandchildren; as well as many nieces, nephews and friends.
