Carolyn Brockett, passed away on April 16, 2022, at the age of 77 on Long Island, NY.  Carolyn was born January 9, 1945, at Sydenham Hospital in Harlem, NY, to Calhoun and Virginia Walker.  Carolyn is survived by one beloved brother Edward Walker (Dolores, Craig, Candice and Sydney).  Carolyn graduated from Hempstead High School in 1963 on Long Island NY.

On January 9, 1971, Carolyn married Cassell Brockett and from that union she had two children.  Jennaire Stradford (Shawn Sr. and Shawn II) and Cassell Brockett Jr. (Cassell III).

Carolyn started working at The Catholic Medical Center in the Payroll Department and she worked in various locations for the same organization.  Carolyn retired from Bishop Mugavero Senior Center in 2015, where she worked in Human Resources.

Once retired Carolyn wanted to stay busy so she volunteered at the Senior Gift Shop. This was not enough so she took classes to become an Ombudsman.  Once Carolyn completed training she volunteered at several local Nursing Homes where she became an advocate for the patients there.  Carolyn was a member of the Red Hats where she enjoyed participating in events and venturing out with the girls.

After relocating to East Northport, Carolyn would return to Queens for church services at Epiphany Lutheran Church.  Carolyn visited many churches until she found First Presbyterian Church of Greenlawn, here, she made her new church home.  Carolyn took the most pride in her position as Deacon in the church.   Carolyn loved her new church home, the pastor and friends she met here.

Carolyn's grandchildren Cassell III (Boop Boop) and Shawn II were the apple of her eye.  Carolyn insisted on summer vacations, cruises and Florida Time Share trips, which resulted in lots of visits to Disney.  These would be memories they will treasure.  Grandma Carolyn, was also their biggest supporter and cheerleader.

The past two years has been extraordinary for her children, Jennaire and Cassell.  To look back and see the strength she demonstrated for all that she endured.  Carolyn had more faith than that of a mustard seed.  Her faith in God preserved her long enough to allow peace in the end.  Mom taught us never give up and most of all she wanted us to be happy.  So we will not say goodbye, but we will see you later.  We will meet her again and we know that she is smiling down on us saying "Job Well Done"!
