Mrs. Stokes was born March 6, 1962 in Columbus, GA daughter of Elizabeth Ann Nugent Curenton and the late Aaron Curenton. She worked for TSYS for over 20 years in Customer Service. Carolyn loved to go to Lake Martin and spend time on her boat and jet ski with family and friends. She also loved to practice being a “mixologist” trying new things on friends and family.
