MOUNT VERNON — Carolyn Lillian Miller, 79, of Mount Vernon, passed away April 1, 2020.
She was born Oct. 6, 1940, in Sunbury, PA, to Edward J. McCormick and Lillian C. (Deppen) McCormick.
Carolyn was a devoted mother and grandmother who loved children, animals and fun. She worked as an administrative assistant for the rectory at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church in the 1980s.

She was active in the St. Vincent de Paul Community, singing in the choir and in various other roles as a layperson in service of the church. She was an active member of the Red Hats Society, and she enjoyed playing cards and shopping with her many friends. She was always quick witted, playful and she loved a little bit of mischief. Carolyn committed the last decades of her life to helping care for her beloved grandchildren. She loved her home, her community, her family, and her cats, Lily, Willy, Cali and Tom Bruiser.
