Carolyn Irene Hernasy passed away in Wichita Falls, Texas, on Monday, Aug. 7, 2017.
Memorial service will be at 2 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 17, 2017, in Whinery Huddleston Chapel.
Carolyn was born Sept. 28, 1948, in Santa Barbara, Calif., to the late Robert and Irene West. Carolyn started her working career in 1966 when she began working for Southwestern Bell. After retiring from Southwestern Bell and still wanting to work, she worked for the Lawton Police Department as a clerk for the next 15 years.
Carolyn loved spending time with her family and friends, especially her grandchildren. Once a year Carolyn would travel to Santa Barbara to visit with family, but it was the love of the sand in her toes that would always bring her back. Her hobbies included cheering on the OKC Thunder basketball, shopping at garage sales with friends, working in her yard, and going to her favorite restaurant, Toby Keith's, in Oklahoma City as much as possible.
Carolyn is survived by her son, Tommy Harris and wife Eva of Lawton; a sister, Roberta Ann (West) and husband Leo Padilla and their three children: Andrew, Joseph, and Stephen of Chico, Calif.; a brother, Glenn Arthur West of Santa Barbara, and his daughter, Sarah of Medford, Ore.; a sister, Debbie Delapp and her husband Charles, and their children: Sierra and Charles Robert of Lawton; granddaughter, Alexis Harris of Muldrow, Okla.; and grandson, Van William Harris of Fort Smith, Ark.
She was preceded in death by her parents: Robert and Irene West; and son, Robert Michael Harris.
