Carolyn Sue Kahoe passed away Sunday May 14, 2017 at her Norman home. She was the youngest of three daughters born to Leslie Lee and Alta Mae Reed on April 3, 1946 in Paoli, Oklahoma. In her young adult years Carolyn had three boys who she loved dearly, Kelly James Henderson, Kenneth Ray Henderson and Brian Lee Henderson. Carolyn was one of the hardest working women ever, providing for her boys over the years in the car business as an office manager and accountant. It was in this business that she met her husband of 34 years, James Kahoe. Together they had one son, Joshua Allen Kahoe.
Carolyn was preceded in death by her parents. She is survived by her husband James Kahoe of Norman, sister Wilma Jean Reidel and husband Bill of Beach Park, Illinois, sister Christine Reed Owens of Tulsa, sons Kelly Henderson and wife Palla of Norman, Ken Henderson and wife Trina of Edmond, Brian Henderson and wife Hailey of Norman, and Joshua Kahoe and wife Hannah of Edmond. The list of family members who loved her includes numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
A memorial service is scheduled for 11:00 A.M. on Saturday May 27, 2017 at First Baptist Church of Norman. We would love to have anyone who knew her to join us in celebrating her life. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that a donation be made to the St. Jude's Children's Hospital, a cause for which her and James were very passionate.
