I am so sorry to hear this. Caryn was the best "across-the-street" neighbor I ever had. We shared so many laughs, a little gossip and lots of flowers. My love to her family and so sorry I can't attend her service.

My sympathies to all of Caryn's family and friends. She was my neighbor and although we weren't as close as we were in high school, I still considered her my friend and will miss her very much.

Rocky and Tim Neyers on Dec 4, 2018

Some of our best camping weekends were in Highlandville with Caryn, Butch and the Hahn families. Caryn was always on the go taking care of her family, she will be truly missed. Thinking of you at this time of sorrow. Rocky and Tim Neyers

I worked with Caryn at Cal Care. She had a great work ethic. Way too young to pass. Thinking of the Kohnen family at this time...
