Carolyn was born on Christmas Eve 1940 on the Lowery farm in Weldon, IL to Eugene and Evelyn (Baker) Lowery. She was a graduate of Deland-Weldon High School and Elkhart Indiana Dental School where she received her Dental Assistant degree. On June 5, 1965 she married Donald Sennhenn. They raised three children together.
Carolyn was an incredibly intelligent, talented, creative, and a witty person. After running Dr. Ritter and Dr. Pirolli’s dental offices in Decatur for over 25 years she poured her passion into her ceramic business and gift shop “Sweethearts” in Maroa. She taught many people to enjoy ceramic painting as well as giving lessons to students in various schools in the area.
She was known for her quick wit, infectious laugh, and storytelling. No one enjoyed her stories more than her.
