Carolyn Oletia Lee
January 3, 1975- April 2, 2023

Carolyn was a lifelong resident of Humboldt and surrounding areas, proud member of the Mono Tribe in Big Sandy, Calif. She was always the life of the party, and she never met a stranger. She enjoyed many hobbies in her free time. She was always at the beach and spent a lot of time outdoors. She was a free-spirit person who ran to the beat of her own drum. She loved her family, friends and her fur babies, talking to anyone who knew her and had a great story about her.

She lived in Eureka and Orleans.
