Obituary for Carolyn L. Klock

Carolyn Lavinia Hahn Klock died on Monday, May 8 at the Meadows at Gettysburg where she was treated with profound warmth and kindness by everyone.

She was born to Elsie Lavinia West of Hampton, VA and John Nicholas Hahn of Philadelphia, PA on May 3, 1940 on Governor’s Island, New York. Carolyn grew up in Hampton, cared for by her mother and many aunts and uncles whom she loved dearly. Her first and best friends have always been her cousins. Upon graduation from Hampton High where she was a cheerleader and basketball queen, she moved to Manhattan NY for flight attendant school and subsequently flew for Capitol and United Airlines. It was on a flight that she met a pilot, Robert Richard Klock of Trevorton, PA and married him. They had one child, a daughter. Being a mother was her greatest joy in life, until she became a grandmother. Robin Klock Fitzpatrick and her husband John reside in Gettysburg with their sons Jackson and Wyatt Culver and Emmett Fitzpatrick.

Carolyn loved people and greeted everyone with a smile. She made it a point to know everyone by name and something about them that she could later connect with. She was warm, smart, funny and beautiful. Carolyn was tormented by mental illness. It destroyed her peace but not her ability to love.

A Christian Wake service will be held on Friday, May 19, 2017 at 6:00 PM at Monahan Funeral Home, Gettysburg, PA with Fr. Daniel Mitzel officiating. The family will receive friends at the funeral home on Friday, May 19th from 4:30 Pm until the time of the service. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the mental health organization of your choice or to your favorite local social service agency or non-profit. She would be so happy to know that we are willing to extend the warmth of compassion to one another in her memory.
