Laura, So sorry to hear about your mother...My thoughts and prayers are with you and yourfamily.

When I opened the Times Recorder this morning and saw the name Carolyn Pinkerton in the obituaries it made me think of my dear friend and all the wonderful memories. May years ago in downtown Zanesville, the YMCA brought to life such good times for families and friends at the YMCA pool. Carolyn and Jane Everett were the instructors of the "Y" Kippers synchronized swim team. Sometimes they practiced in the Y swimming pool but most of their meets were at Rosecrans pool. At this time, Wylladine Walker and I were the instructors of the ladies at the YMCA pool. Sometimes there was lap swim, learning to dive and a lot of just learning to swim. We had life saving classes for many and on Friday night there was family swim. The older ladies really loved for the Kippers to show them new tricks in the water and it was just good to see the young girls & older ladies trying the synchronized swimming. Giggling was heard a lot and when someones nose clip popped off underwater, some sputtering and coughing was heard. Carolyn was such a strong and beautiful swimmer. She just flowed through the water. We were all water safety instructors for the Red Cross of Muskingum county. I remember Mr. John Montgomery telling us instructors this was our calling and I think that he was right on this count because we all loved teaching the kids to swim and be life savers. Goodbye Carolyn, thanks for being part of the hard work and fun times!

Your Friend,

Herberta Vallee
