Carolyn Mae Littlepage, 73, passed away peacefully in her sleep, Thursday, October 8, 2020. She was born December 4, 1946 to Frances Xavier Lucasey and Mattie Harvey in Springfield, Illinois.
Carolyn had fond memories of her time on her grandparents’ farm in Illinois as a small child. She went to high school in Torrance, California and later received her GED from Wichita State.
Some of Carolyn’s best years were spent in the Navy as a radioman, and later a Military Advisor. The Navy gave her a strength and self-respect she had never had before. The Navy gave her the chance to teach others, including her family, what she learned: high standards, conduct, personal responsibility, and patriotism. She always loved her country and had respect for all veterans like her.
Carolyn continued to set the example of service throughout the rest of her life. As she served in the Navy, she also served all those she met. If she had a chance to serve, she would make the choice to serve. Carolyn also enjoyed scuba diving off the coast of Guam while stationed there. She liked flying small two-passenger planes. One thing she missed was her motorcycle.
Carolyn married Nathan Kidd. Later she Married Sam Cawthra and last was Paul Littlepage.
Carolyn loved children and was very proud of all six of her children. She was always active in the schools. She was an “Art Mom” and worked as a volunteer coordinator for butte view elementary and in the early ‘90s. She made sure that Emmett Middle school band concerts had programs and helped raise money for the Emmett High School Choir trips.
Carolyn was the kindest person there could be. One person even described her as being the kind of person that would give the shirt off her back if she thought someone needed it more than she did. She pulled over in a rainstorm to help get a couple and their baby out of the rain. Whenever she was needed, she helped without asking for anything in return. Everywhere she went people loved her. They often talk about her loving spirit and her compassion.
Carolyn is preceded in death by her grandparents, her parents, her brothers, and her daughter, Laura Carroll.
Carolyn is survived by sister, Judy Clauson; her son, Patrick Lucasey; four daughters, Carolann Fitch, Debra Poe, Debora Roy, and Stephanie Winkel; 18 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren.
Memorial services will be held at 11:00 AM on Saturday, November 14, 2020 at the Potter Funeral Chapel of Emmett. Services will be recordedfor those who won't be able to attend in person.
