Carolyn Faye (Shroyer) Brockway passed away peacefully on February 3, 2019.
Carolyn was born on September 28th, 1941 in Alma, MI to Fern and Glenn Shroyer. She married Dale Brockway on June 3rd, 1961, and they enjoyed 57 years together. They owned and operated Snow Snake Ski and Golf. As the owner, Carolyn helped Snow Snake become the adventure attraction it is by adding a golf course, tubing hill, and zip line. She could always be found at golf outings or cheerfully chatting behind the counter during the winter. She is remembered by loved ones as tough, fun, and adding sparkle wherever she went.
During her retirement, she split time between Harrison, Michigan and Mission, Texas. In her free time she enjoyed golfing, playing pool, participating in tractor shows with her husband Dale, and spending time with her friends and family. She was known for her great summer cookouts. She was an avid traveler, driving to all continental states with Dale, pulling their fifth wheel in a big red truck.
Carolyn is survived by her husband, Dale Brockway; her sister, Connie Shainholtz; daughter, Jann and her husband John Cleary, their three daughters, Kalysta (Michael) Leary, Therese, and Madison and great-granddaughter, Ila Leary; her son, Jeff and his sons, Zack and Jase, his girlfriend, Jessica Dalton and her two children, Abby and Hunter; and beloved dog, Uncle Bunker.
