Carolyn Ann (Grant) KalweiNovember 11, 1944 ~ November 23, 2017 (age 73)
Carolyn Ann Grant Kalwei passed away on November 23, 2017.
Carolyn was born on November 11, 1944 in Clinton, MO to Edward and Loraine Grant (Cole). She was the oldest of six children, and as such, she served as role-model, mentor, and advocate for her siblings, roles that extended well beyond childhood. She moved to Kansas City when she was 18, and began working for Kansas City Life Insurance. In Kansas City she was introduced to a high school classmate’s brother, Gene, who would become the love of her life. In 1984 Carolyn and Gene adopted a son, Peter. She would later work at Holy Spirit Catholic School for 15 years.
Carolyn was a kind, loving, selfless individual. She cherished her friends and her family. She loved to garden, particularly enjoying the times when the whole family could work in the yard together. Nothing made her happier than sitting down with a glass of wine surrounded by friends and family.
Carolyn was preceded in death by her father, Edward Grant and her brother, Jim Grant.
She is survived by her husband of 49 years, Gene; son, Pete and his friend, Julie Bradford; mother, Loraine Grant; sisters, Patty St. Louis, Kathy (Gary) Jones, Joan Grant and her brother, Ron Grant.
