Carolyn L. Calhoun, 81, of Tipton was called home by her Savior on September 4, 2018, at I.U. Health Tipton Hospital, following a brief illness. She also lived in Huntington, Lafayette and Boswell over the course of her bountiful life. Carolyn was born August 28, 1937, in Cleveland, Ohio to Donald and Lucille (Schriefer) Sutton.
