Obituary for Carolyn Carter Reagan

February 28, 1928 - January 27, 2021
Murray, Kentucky | Age 92


Carolyn Carter Reagan, 92, of Murray, Kentucky, left this world January 27, 2021, at the Anna Mae Owen Residential Hospice House in Murray.
She was born February 28, 1928 in Murray, Kentucky, to William Zelna and Martha Stevenson Carter. She was of Christian faith and a lifelong member of First Christian Church. Murray, KY.

Carolyn attended Murray State University and later returned to her alma mater where she worked in the MSU Athletic Department, and later in the Management & Marketing Department. She retired after 29 years of service. Carolyn was a member of the Christian Women's Fellowship and The Twins Foundation. She was a supporter of both the Calloway County Humane Society, and the Murray Art Guild.

She was a gifted painter, and left many works to be treasured by family and friends. Her hand painted Christmas exhibits were a significant contribution to the beginning of "Christmas in the Park". She was an avid fan of both Murray State University and the St. Louis Cardinals, along with her husband. She treasured her family and especially loved the role of "CC". She put a smile on many with her positive, cheerful outlook. She was a friend to all whose lives she touched.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 70 years, Johnny Reagan and her twin brother, John Mack Carter of Bronxville NY. She always professed Johnny was the love of her life, the best part of the storybook life she had.

She is survived by her two daughters: Jan Fuqua and husband John; Lyn Ryan and husband Mike of Murray; five grandchildren: Tony Ryan and wife Chelsee, Mitch Ryan and wife Ashley, Alan Chase and wife Mary, all of Murray; Amy Chase of Louisville KY; Greg Ryan and wife Mallory of Florence, KY; and ten great grandchildren.

A private family graveside service will be held at the Murray City Cemetery with Ruth Ragovin officiating. There will be no public visitation. A memorial service will be held at a later date.
