May 3, 1936 – June 24, 2020 Carolyn Nelson passed away on the 24th June, 2020. A perpetually free spirit left her failing body behind. She lived a life full of wandering adventures, with a child’s curiosity and an always open mind. She came home to a place close to paradise surrounded by a band of truly wonderful friends. She was lucky, and so were we. We will miss her. One of her greatest pleasures through her years in Carbondale was the artistry of the Thunder River Theater Company. It would give her great pleasure to know that a thought of her spurred a gesture of support for this valley’s inspired jesters.
