Carolyn Sue Osborne

October 3, 1957 - June 29, 2019


Carolyn Sue Osborne, age 61, of Texarkana, Texas died Saturday, June 29, 2019 at the Wadley Regional Medical Center surrounded by family. She was born on Thursday, October 3, 1957 and joined Robert and Hazel Osborne's family in Kankakee, Illinois.

Carolyn was a hard working and caring woman. Her love for her children was insurmountable. When raising her children, she had a way of making even the most mundane events an exciting adventure. Even during the toughest of times she provided an endless supply of love and care. She was always on your side and believed in all your dreams. If you did not know how to laugh, she would teach you how. No one could ask for a better friend. Carolyn's family meant everything to her. She loved working on her yard, and the satisfaction of a job well done. Her love was unconditional, and she will be missed by anyone who was lucky enough to know her.

Carolyn is survived by her loving companion, Bob Guyton of Texarkana, Texas; her parents, Robert and Hazel Osborne of Gladewater, Texas; three sons, Joe Strawbridge of Albany, Oregon, John Strawbridge of Dallas, Texas, and Garrett Lundberg of Mena; one daughter and son in law, Jamie and Jeff Wilson of Spencerport, New York; five brothers, Bruce Osborne, Tommy Osborne, Justin Osborne, Jason Osborne, and Philip Moore of Texarkana, Texas; four sisters and son in law, Anne Gonzalez of Hatfield, Cindy Osborne of Oregon, Star and Michael Taylor of Arlington, Texas, and Bonnie Allgor of Texarkana, Texas; thirteen grandchildren; two great grandchildren; several nieces and nephews; lifelong friend, Debbie of Illinois; special friend, Peggy Guyton of Texarkana, Texas; her beloved dog and cat, Izzy and Rusty, and a host of other relatives and friends.
