TOPE, CAROLYN STAGG born April 17, 1927, died on June 30, 2013. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband Dwight. She is survived by her sons Rock and wife Deborah of Albuquerque; Chris and wife Dolores of Colorado Springs and their son and daughter Michael and Susan. She is also survived by her sister Marcia Cantrell and niece Carol Cantrell, both of whom provided so much continual love and care as her health declined. She attended Immanuel Presbyterian Church; was a charter member of Las Aranas Spinners and Weavers Guild and Escribiente; also belonged to the Albuquerque Handweavers Guild, and played golf at the Albuquerque Country Club for many years. In later years Carolyn took up the folk harp and quilting. The family wishes to thank Carolyn's primary physician Dr Christopher Merchant for all the care and attention he gave and for telling Mom she could eat all the chocolate she wanted. We also thank another of Mom's doctors, Dr Sara Mills, for her additional medical care, friendship and cinnamon roll loaves. Much appreciation is also expressed to her dear friends Pat Wimer and Rose Holte for the food and friendship they provided. And the family also thanks CeCe who led the excellent home health care team during Mom's final weeks. Carolyn will be cremated and no service will be held, per her wishes. If desired, contributions may be made to the Animal Humane Association of New Mexico, or to the charitable organization of one's choice.
