Carolyn was born December 9, 1949, in San Augustine County to Buster and Mozell Kingsley. She graduated from Broaddus High School in 1968. She married the love of her life, Ray Bryant, on December 21, 1967. They recently celebrated 53 years of matrimony. They had 2 children: Allen and Angie. Carolyn worked alongside Ray running their business, San Augustine Tractor, for 44 years. She dearly loved her family and enjoyed sharing stories and pictures of her grandbabies with friends or really anyone that would listen.
She loved all her family and friends dearly and would do anything for anyone. She enjoyed people, and never met a stranger. She could strike up a conversation with anyone, anywhere. Best example of this is, once while sitting in Methodist Hospital ICU waiting area, she had an hour and half long conversation with what she described as two very nice men. Clifford arrived later and saw them leaving the ICU and informed her that these two nice men were San Antonio Spurs Coach Greg Popovich and player Tim Duncan. After this she did follow the Spurs.
Those who are left to cherish her memory include, as she referred to him, her “sweetheart,” husband, Ray Bryant of San Augustine; son, Allen Bryant of Hudson; daughter, Angie McGown and husband Todd of Hudson; father, Buster Kingsley of Broaddus; brother, Clifford Kingsley of Broaddus; grandchildren, Ashton and Nicholas Bryant of Beaumont, Taylor McGown of College Station, and Kolby and Kyndel Bryant of Lufkin; and a great-granddaughter, Londyn Bryant.
She was preceded in death by her mother, Mozell Kingsley; and her son-in-law, Michael Allen Wilson.
Pallbearers: Todd McGown, Nicholas Bryant, Michael Bryan, Tony Wall, Jody Pickard, and Andy Fuller. Honorary pallbearers: Ryan Kingsley, and Danny Airhart.
