August 6, 1985 — July 16, 2020

Carolyn Jeanne Kryzer, 34 of Winona, died unexpectedly Thursday, July 16, 2020 due to injuries sustained in an automobile accident.

Carolyn was a gentle soul who enjoyed going for walks. She could often be found sitting near bodies of water watching the currents move. She loved the sound of rain but hated thunderstorms. Carolyn spent her time reading and was curious about everything. She was always willing to talk but preferred to just sit and listen to others, She enjoyed baking and would often make treats to give away, just because. Carolyn lived for her family and friends, and believed in being kind to anyone she met. Carolyn traveled through her life's journey on her own schedule and was late to everything.
