Dorothy Carolyn Polk of Winter Haven, FL, entered into the arms of the Lord on Thursday, July 9, 2020. She was 73. A native of Winter Haven, born April 7, 1947 to Robert and Lovie Bailey, Carolyn has lived here her whole life in the Florida area.

Carolyn loved her family and her church very much. She spent her entire life in ministry helping everyone she met. She touched countless lives by her faith and tremendous work ethic. Writing letters, visiting the sick, and being concerned about her fellow brothers and sisters in the Lord was where she spent most of her time. The first part of each day she gave to the Lord in devotion to her faith. She will be greatly missed by those that were touched by her kindness and words of wisdom that she often shared.

Carolyn loved doing for her kids and grandkids and this was one of her greatest joys that she had. She loved spending time with them in Sebring, Avon Park, and Grand Island, Florida.
