Carolyn Loveless Schlicher died Sunday, Dec. 15, 2013, in Dallas, Texas. A memorial reception is scheduled at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 21, 2013, at the Anderson Museum of Contemporary Art, 409 E. College Blvd., Roswell.
Carolyn was born in New Orleans, La., on Sept. 22, 1948. As a young child, she moved to Roswell with her family. She graduated from Goddard High School in 1966 and continued on to receive a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Southern Methodist University in 1970.
Carolyn recognized and appreciated culture and beauty in the world around her. She lived most of her life in Roswell, but traveled extensively in the U.S. and abroad. Carolyn loved art and art history and was a talented artist herself. Carolyn also loved animals, always surrounded herself with pets of all shapes and sizes.
She was known to her family and friends as a generous and loving person with a sharp tongue and solid sense of right and wrong. She was honest — sometimes, bluntly so. She was often accused of being a “straight shooter,” but thought it better to be direct than hide the truth. She was witty and genuine and cared deeply about those in her life. A dedicated mother and friend, she will be greatly missed by her family and many longtime friends.
Carolyn is survived by her two children: James Coe Schlicher and his wife, Abby, Christine Schlicher Johnson and her husband, R.J.; her five grandchildren: Charles, Prideaux, Clayton, Archer and Margaret; her former husband, Frederick J. Schlicher; her sister, Lucinda Loveless; her niece, Whitney Jones, and nephew, Barrett Heaton; and other family and friends. Carolyn was preceded in death by her parents: Charles Coe Loveless and Nadine Prideaux Loveless.
