Carolyn J. Danzig, 76, of Shawnee, KS, passed away peacefully on Dec 14, 2016 with her children by her bedside at Claridge Court in Prairie Village, KS.

Carolyn was the daughter of Charles and Edith Hale in Kansas City, KS. She is survived by her daughter, Tammara Winget, son, Bryan King (Jennifer), grandchildren, Tyler and Hunter Winget, sisters, Peggy Bodam (Glenn), JoAnne Simpson, Donna Woolery and many nieces and nephews.

Carolyn was an amazing mother, grandmother aka g-ma, sister, aunt, and friend. Carolyn could accomplish anything she set her mind to and became a successful business owner, retiring at age 40. She loved spending time and traveling with her two grandchildren. She was an avid golfer playing in tournaments across the U.S. and would proudly tell you about her two holes-in-one. She also enjoyed water aerobics, walking, listening to music, shopping and being with her dog – Cuddles.

Carolyn had a lively wit, keen sense of humor and an infectious laugh. She always said, “you have to laugh, because it’s healthy”. She was always the “life of the party” at any community or family gathering and always enjoyed dancing as she would often tell you what a good dancer she was. Christmas was her favorite holiday and she truly enjoyed having a house full of Christmas decorations.

There will be an inurnment at Maple Hill Cemetery with family and friends at a later date. Her children and grandchildren will have a memorial celebration of Carolyn’s life at her favorite golf course in Pebble Beach, CA. Memorial contributions can be made to the American Cancer Society (donate.cancer.org) or the Alzheimer Association (www.alz.org/donate).

The family would like to give a special thank you to the kind and compassionate caregivers at Claridge Court, Catholic Community Hospice and Dr. Amar Khalifa. Assistance by Funeral Advocates, LLC.
