Carolyn was born March 21, 1912, in Norman, Oklahoma, to Fredrick and Caroline Kuhlman. She graduated from Norman High School and attended the University of Oklahoma. She married Alfred O. Fuerbringer, pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church, Norman, Oklahoma, on June 1, 1934. They had four children, Kenneth, Max, Marian, and Jane.
She accompanied her husband to parishes in Okmulgee, Oklahoma, Leavenworth, Kansas, and then to Seward, Nebraska, where her husband was President of Concordia Teachers College. In 1953 they moved to St. Louis, Missouri, when he became President of Concordia Seminary, and later president emeritus. In 1985 they retired to Carolyn’s hometown of Norman and joined University Lutheran Church.
Though she and her husband traveled extensively, Carolyn was always happiest at home. She had a lifelong love of gardening and cooking, took particular interest in national and world events, and followed her beloved St. Louis Cardinals and later the Oklahoma City Thunder religiously.
Carolyn was preceded in death by her husband, Alfred; three sisters, Helen, Frieda, and Marie, four brothers, Henry, Fred, Walter, and Martin; and her children Kenneth, Max, and Marian.
She is survived by her daughter, Jane of
Norman, Oklahoma, daughter-in-law, Jean of California, and granddaughters,
Rachael, Kathie, and Elizabeth of California.
