Carolyn Myatt

November 18, 1945 — April 2, 2023

Mt. Juliet

Carolyn Lynda Myatt, age 77 passed from this life April 2, 2023 after a long battle with lung disease. She was born Carolyn Lynda Farris on November 18, 1945 in Garden City, MI to

J.C. and Margaret Farris. Her childhood saw her move to Kentucky with her father and eventually as a teenager to Shelbyville, TN to live with her beloved grandparents Glenn and Grace Cates. May of 1966 ushered her into a new life, that of a mother and what a great mother she was. She filled the role with flying colors as the "PTA mom", "den mother mom", "cookies for school

mom", "school play costume design and seamstress mom" and any other mom title one could have conjured. Through all the wonders and even loss that motherhood brought, she was the best. Time marched on and kids grew to be parents which turned "mom" into Gram. Carolyn took to being a grandmother as expertly as she took to motherhood and all of her grandchildren were truly blessed by her love and care. We will all sorely miss her and will lean on sweet memories to heal our broken hearts.

Carolyn is survived by her husband Steve; son Mark Kincaid(Eve); stepson Grayl Myatt(Libby); Stepdaughter Amanda Bracht(Todd); brothers Jackie Farris, Glynn Simmons and Robert Simmons; Sisters Rebecca Kalnasy and Patti White; grandchildren Christian Kincaid, Courtney Clow(Cash), Nicole Polson(Brandon), Eva Bracht and the best medicine Gram had, great granddaughter Renee Clow.

She is preceeded in death by parents J.C. Farris and Margaret Simmons; Grandparents Glenn and Grace Cates; sons Michael Alan Kincaid and James Calvin Kincaid; daughter Karen Elizabeth Kincaid; and brother Greg Simmons.
