Carolyn Brown Myhre, 76, of New Haven


NEW HAVEN — Carolyn Brown Myhre, 76, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, Oct. 27, 2021, after a long illness. She enjoyed the constant love and support of her family until the very end.

Carolyn was born in Bel Air, Md., the daughter of Clarence and Helen Brown. She grew up in Street, Md., and graduated from Bel Air High School.

She was an avid Bingo player and loved watching sports in person and on television. Her favorite teams were the Baltimore Orioles, New England Patriots and Notre Dame.

Carolyn will be remembered for her kindness and goofy sense of humor. Carolyn and Steve had a special relationship, enjoying 51 devoted years together with their children.
