Carolyn Ingram Pahle M.A. ’84 was born at home on South 13th St. in San Jose on April 4, 1930. She graduated from Abraham Lincoln High School in 1947, and later graduated from San Francisco State University and SCU. Carolyn spent the majority of her career as a teacher and her final 10 years as a resource specialist in the Campbell Union School District. Carolyn married Bill Pahle in 1951, and they raised their daughters in Campbell. Carolyn was an independent, outgoing person who made friends everywhere she went. Her door on April Way was always open to neighbors, and she loved being a part of the lives of her daughters and their friends. She was a doting grandma who adored and spoiled her four grandkids as often as possible. Carolyn passed away Nov. 2, 2018, at the age of 88 due to metastatic breast cancer. Even with a fading memory and tired body, she continued to be a role model on how to accept aging gracefully and kept her upbeat, cheery personality to the very end. Her daughters, Amy Sarringhaus and Alison Wilford, son-in-law Rob Sarringhaus, and grandchildren Katelyn and Andrew Wilford and Megan and Caroline Sarringhaus survive her.
