Carolyn Alice Woodworth

Carolyn Alice Woodworth passed away at Sacred Heart Hospital on June 17th, 2023.  She was born May 28th, 1943, in St. Joseph, Missouri to Gerald and Alice Power.  She married her first love, Wayne Woodworth, of Gleed, WA in 1960 and joined him in his life of ministry.  In this pursuit, they pastored churches in Deer Park, WA, Coeur d’Alene, ID, Pendleton, OR, Stratton, CO, Redding, CA and Colville, WA.

She sought to help others in every capacity she was able. From running summer Vacation Bible School programs, to leading the churches in Easter and Christmas pageants.  She became a CNA and opened her home to care for seniors.  Carolyn also became a licensed day care provider and opened her home to children.  After retiring from ministry, Wayne and Carolyn worked together as directors of a Senior Housing Facility and helped usher in a new form of senior housing, commonly referred to today as Assisted Living.

Carolyn and Wayne retired in the community of Newport, WA to be closer to family.  They put their natural talent of making something out of nothing to work on a plot of land on Coyote Trail Road with an old trailer home.  Many friends and family members helped to convert it into the home they shared for some 25 years.  Only health issues, and the desire to be together forever, could take them off of that hillside.

Carolyn is survived by her husband of nearly 63 years, Wayne Woodworth, sister-in-laws Engle and Sonya Power, son Mark (Lynette) Woodworth of Hayden, ID and daughter Teresa (Eric) Stone of Clinton, MA, grandchildren Andrew (Ashley) Woodworth, Aubrey (Jared) Crist, Alysse Woodworth, Emily Stone, Sarah Stone and Nathan Stone.  And beloved nieces, nephews and extended family from the Woodworth, Power and Easter families. She is preceded in death by beloved daughter Patricia Woodworth and infant sons Kenny and Michael Woodworth, her parents and brothers Lee Power and Donald Power.

With children and grandchildren in the Northwest, Northeast and Southwest corners, we will save a memorial to celebrate the reunion with her beloved husband at a future time.

Carolyn, you can rest without pain and suffering with your Savior, Jesus.

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”  MATTHEW 11:28-30
