Carolyn “Kay” McCallie

Carolyn was born on December 8th 1935 in Portchester, NY to parents Homer and Alice Shattuck. Raised in Rye, NY and
lived in NY until she and her family moved to Danbury, CT. for 40 years, then moved to Tucson, AZ with her husband
for another 20 years.

Carolyn graduated from Rye High School in 1954. She was a member of her high school marching band. She stayed in touch with many of her former classmates after graduation. She met and married Walter McCallie Jr. in 1955. They raised their two children in Danbury CT. for the next 30 years.

camper. The McCallie’s spent numerous years traveling all over the country from their bus to their latest Pace Arrow camper.

Walter and Carolyn moved to Tucson in 2000 where they continued their retirement in the desert southwest. Carolyn never tired of the intense hot summers in the desert. For countless holidays & summers Carolyn would enjoy her family and her
granddaughters over at poolside, and many outings around Tucson, etc.

Carolyn is recalled by many of her generous personality and her passion for life as a wife, mother, and grandmother. Also,
accepting trials, surprises, and changes that cast her way.

Bob Hedin; her two granddaughters Janis Mulvihill and her husband William Mulivihill, and Jennifer Hedin.
