Sad to know she passed away. Prayers to the soul of Carolyn Livengood. I’m always grateful to her for posting in her column or news item on community activities when I was in Daly City or in South San Francisco. She used to call me to clear up facts on the news release for publication.
She’s one journalist I will surely miss.

Have fun writing in your eternal home. Carolyn has plenty of things to write in heaven.
God bless and condolence to her friends and family.
