Carolyn Shallenberger Obituary

Carolyn Marie Shallenberger, 81, of Hamilton, passed away Wednesday, December 13, 2023, at St. John’s Hospital in Springfield, Illinois.

Carolyn was born August 24, 1942, the daughter of Victor and Goldie (Land) Hewitt in Keokuk, Iowa.  On August 24, 1963, she was united in marriage to Herbert Shallenberger at his home in Hamilton.  Carolyn had cleaned many area businesses and churches including the Nauvoo Inn and Suites, and the Christian, Baptist and Methodist churches in Hamilton.  She enjoyed tea parties, genealogy and gardening, especially flowers.  Her greatest joy, however, came from her family and especially her grandchildren and was affectionately known as “Little Grandma”.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Herbert; and siblings, Norma Brooks, Ray Hewitt and Mary Hewitt.
