Another hole in the fabric of MHS Class of ‘61. I sat next to Frits in most of our classes at MHS as we were alphabetically next to each other. She dated my brother in law. She went to grade school, jr. high and high school with husband and I first met her in Jr. High, She was always part of the crowd we went around with. Turned her dad was at MHS along with my mom. We kind of wish we didn’t know of her death as then we would still think of her being someone we looked forward to seeing at any upcoming reunion.

My sister will be missed by all who knew her. I have memories of her and her best friend Muffy Bruett dancing in her room to a 45 rpm, really cutting up the rug. She always cared so much how we were doing offering love and support.

Carolyn"Fritts" as she will always be remembered as, was such a warm caring person. Our mothers' went to MHS together so we used to get together as little kids. Later we enjoyed so many wonderful times at the same high school. We will all have to think of those happy memories and wish her family and friends the same.
