Carol (Anderson) Tryon

There was a loving family member lost and heaven gained an angel on the evening of September 22, 2015. Carol (Anderson) Tryon passed away in the comfort of her home. She was the backbone of her family. Carol was always full of life and never short for words or afraid to tell you her thoughts. Yet she had one of the biggest hearts in the world. She opened her door to anyone. Many times in life, she put family and friends above her self or her own needs. She was truly loved and cherished by her family and friends. Carol will be missed everyday and many things will never be the same. God brought an amazing lady home. She is survived by her brother Teddy and sister Dot. Her two sons Jack and Jim Tryon, her daughter-in-laws Ingrid and Lori, her grandkids Jack III, David, Addelene, Kayla, and Logan, along with her great grandson Jack Ryan.
