Carolyn Horner

Funeral services for Carolyn Horner, 75, West Plains, Missouri, will be held at 2:00 p.m., Saturday, January 18, 2020 in the Rose Chapel at Robertson-Drago Funeral Home.


Mrs. Horner passed away at 3:11 a.m., Tuesday, January 14, 2020 at Brooke Haven Health Care.


She was born August 24, 1944, at Pensacola, Florida, to Marvin Eugene Blankenship and Reta Underwood.  Carolyn held many positions during her life, including beautician, cook and working at International Shoe Company, but her most important one was being a mother, grandmother and sister.  Her big smile was only overshadowed by her generous heart.  Everyone that met her was soon smiling and laughing as she was a joyful person.  Although she is no longer with us in body, we will continue to see her smile, hear her laugh and feel the love that she had for all of us.

Those who were waiting for her were her two sets of parents, Eugene and Amy Blankenship, Robert and Reta Teague, the father of her children, Joe Horner, brother-in-law, Ed Oliver, special grandson, Brian Ingalsbe, her grandparents and many aunts, uncles and cousins.
