Carolyn E. Boyer of O’Fallon, Missouri, passed away at the age of 73 on Thursday, April 29, 2021. Loving wife of 53 years to Wayne Boyer Sr.; devoted mother of Michelle Boyer and Wayne E. (Amy) Boyer II; cherished grandmother of Joseph Melvin, Nicolas Melvin, Austin Boyer, and Brooke Boyer; dear sister of Dennis Batteram and Ronald Batteram.  Carolyn was also preceded in death by her infant son, Wayne Boyer Jr.

Carolyn met Wayne in the summer of 1967, while hanging out on the cruise strip at the White Castle’s in Berkeley, MO.  She asked Wayne if he wanted to play cards.  Little did she know that this guy, who had a 427 Chevy Impala at the time, had never played cards in his life.  They hit it off though, and were married almost a year later at First Baptist Church of Overland.

Carolyn was a dedicated woman of Christian faith, and she cherished teaching Sunday School to the kids at First Baptist of Ferguson.  She loved family and treated everyone as such, and she rarely met a stranger.  She truly enjoyed crocheting and made about 50 afghans and blankets for various friends and family members.

Carolyn loved her family above everything else, and she always cherished family reunions or the opportunity to watch her kids play sports. She also enjoyed volunteering her service as both a Girl Scout Leader and a Cub Scouts Den Mother for her children.  She was a fantastic baker and her Christmas cookies were a specialty that the whole family looked forward to every year.

Carolyn will be remembered for her outgoing and loving nature.  She will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions to Hoina Orphanage c/o First Baptist-St. Charles (Checks made to First Baptist and they will send to Hoina Orphanage).

    candle 5Condolences to Wayne, Michelle, and the grandkids. Carolyn is a very special cousin. When I was born, I think she thought I was her baby doll. Even after my Mom and I moved to Phoenix, we visited as often as possible. When she wanted her name to be Carole, I just couldn’t get used to it and always called her Carolyn. I was a bridesmaid in her wedding to Wayne and Michelle was a flower girl in mine. I have such special memories of us together. I will miss our visits and her crazy shopping trips while visiting me in Phoenix….and Wayne laughing when she told him that she might have to buy another suitcase to bring home everything she bought!
    Love, Sandy

    candle 4Our condolences to Wayne and family. Carol and Wayne live across the street from my parents for 30+ years. They always watched out for my parents. The last few years of Mom being with us. Carol kept a good eye on her, always calling me if she was worried about something. We live so far away, this was a great comfort for me. Carol was always so good to Mom, exchanging coupons, craft fair fun, just keeping the neighbor hood in line…lol. Carol and Mom watched their Grandkids grow up and shared stories. I’m sure they are still watching!
    Wayne I’m so sorry, she will be greatly missed. Memories help us through. The Meehan’s

    Our condolences to Wayne, little Wayne, Michelle and all the grandkids. Carol was one of a kind to say the least, she loved her family and life itself. Carol was always there to help, she truly loved being there for you and to help in anyway she could, not a mean bone in her body.

    I’m sure God has prepared a place for you and that you will be happy there lending a helping hand to anyone in need. God bless you and watch over your family we pray in Jesus name.

    You will certainly be missed by all who knew you.

    To my mom,
    It’s only been a few days that you have been gone and I miss you so much You’re my first and best friend. The last few weeks I had with you seems like they went by so fast I’m trying to remember all the good times that we had together we had so many. We have had so many good times and some bad but we almost made it through as a family. I feel empty inside I want you to make it so bad the Mother’s Day and your birthday so I could have one last time with you but I know that God had other plans for you. I’m glad we Got to take our last trip to Texas, But I wish you could’ve made another trip to Phoenix together but we didn’t make. I know that you’re in a better place and you’re not suffering anymore God has taken away all your pain and I know that you’re watching over all of us just like you were watching over us down here you can see us but we cannot see you. Nobody will ever take the place of you and I will always be in our hearts and our souls and we know until we meet again I love you and miss you mom

    Love always your one and only daughter,
    Michelle
