carolyn-bridgewaterCarolyn L. (Korbe) Bridgewater, 79, of Indianapolis passed away on October 8, 2016 while surrounded by her family following a brief illness.  She was born on July 21, 1937 in Indianapolis to Clarence and Alma (Pennington) Korbe.

A life-long resident of Indianapolis, Carolyn is a graduate of the former St. Mary Academy.  She was proud to retire from Ford Motor Company in 1992 where she worked in Human Resources in Hourly Personnel for thirty-six years.  She was a member of St. Mark’s Catholic Church in Indianapolis.

Carolyn will be remembered for her loving spirit  – whether taking care of her family and friends, working with her plants and flowers or feeding the birds that frequented her yard.  She enjoyed reading and traveling the globe, with her favorite destination being Puerto Vallarta, Mexico to where she made many trips. She will be terribly missed by those whose lives she touched.

Carolyn is survived by one son, Frank (Lorrie) Bridgewater of Greenwood; one daughter, Michelle (Keith) Allee of Greenwood; and two loving grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents and her husband of twenty-two years, Frank Bridgewater, Jr.
