Karolyn M. Carver

 

Karolyn Marie Carver went to meet her Savior on Friday, October 4, 2019 in her home, having lived a Christian life for all her years.  She was born to Clare B. Davenport and Charlotte M. Rosenthal Davenport on February 4, 1944. 

She was a graduate of Mexico High School in 1961.  She attended University of Missouri – Columbia from 1961 – 1963 and finished her Accounting degree at Truman State University in 1974, graduating Magna Cum Laude.

She had several Accounting businesses over 45 years in Macon, St. Louis, and Jefferson City, Missouri.  She was a Financial Planner with Oppenheimer Funds, Vice President at Exchange National Bank, and held various other accounting jobs.

She was a long-time, loyal JC Lions Club member.  She was a charter member of Crossroads Christian Church in Macon, MO; Capital City Christian Church and Capital West Christian Church, both in Jefferson City, MO.

She had many interests inside and outside of the home.  She was known for her wonderful cooking, gardening, and sewing and had an artistic flair in many pursuits.  She was instrumental in leading an Apples of Gold program to teach women how to cook and other homemaking skills along with a Bible Study.

On November 8, 1986, she was married to Bernard “Sparky” Carver at Capital City Christian Church in Jefferson City, MO for nearly 33 years.

She was preceded in death by her parents; one brother, Russell Davenport; and both husbands.

Karolyn is survived by two daughters, Judy L. Mantle-Allison and Jennifer M. Mantle from a previous marriage to Arnold R. Mantle; one brother, Donald “Butch” Davenport; a sister-in-law, Linda Davenport; a nephew Matthew Davenport; and many nieces, nephews, grand nieces and nephews, and great grand nieces and nephews.  She will surely be missed by all.
