Carolyn Narotsky Obituary

Carolyn Narotsky of Akron, Ohio died on September 16, 2021. She was the daughter of Lena and Irving Narotsky. She leaves her sister, Reta N. Krane; niece Susan Krane and nephew Spencer Krane; and her special family Judy Lawhorn Fernandez, Darryl Fernandez and their children and grandchildren. Carolyn was a graduate of Buchtel High School, Ohio University and Cleveland State University. A retired speech therapist in the Cleveland public schools, she also had extensive retail experience in men's clothing, which began at an early age in her father's store, Square Men's Wear in Barberton, Ohio. Many considered her a "pro's pro" in salesvery caring and professional when relating to people. Carolyn was an active volunteer at the Akron Zoo, the American Cancer Society Discovery Shop and above all at her favorite Summit Metro Parks, where she volunteered from 1992 until recently. She was an avid hiker and golfer who had great respect and enthusiasm for the outdoors. Carolyn cherished every minute she spent at the Good Park Golf Course, from her teens into her late eighties, and had two holes-in-one to her credit. She was a member of the Daughters of Israel and the Jewish Community Center. As Carolyn said, she was aptly named: she truly cared. The family will hold an intimate graveside service at Rose Hill-Beth Israel on Sunday, September 19 at 11 a.m. Please contact Gordon Funeral Home for details on joining via Zoom (330) 836-7989. Memorial contributions can be made to Jewish Family Service of Akron, Summit Metro Parks, First Tee, and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. No flowers please.
