Carolyne Hibbitt Alsup, age 93, passed from this life peacefully on Saturday, April 30, 2022. Born in Itasca TX in 1928, she grew up in Denison TX and lived there until 2009. For the past 11 years, she was a resident at StoryPoint Assisted Living in Chattanooga.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Rev. Bruce T. Hibbitt Sr. and Merle Martin Hibbitt, and her siblings, Nita Baxley and Bruce Hibbitt Jr. of Denison TX and Patsy Barnett of Baltimore MD.
She is survived by her loving family, Bob and Lota Alsup of Chattanooga, Hal Alsup of Austin TX, and Mike and Lien Alsup of Tulsa OK; grandchildren, Joel and Lindsey Alsup of Memphis TN, James and Kathleen Alsup of Howell MI, and Emily and Justin Forsythe of Chattanooga TN; and seven great-grandchildren, (Audrey and Jacob Wilkerson, Ethan and Harper Alsup, and Afton, Eleanor and Ronan Forsythe).
A longtime member of Mount Pleasant Missionary Baptist Church in Denison TX, Carolyne loved music, flowers, cooking, and anything purple. She enjoyed visits from family, especially her nieces and nephews, and kept up with their growing families by surrounding herself with their pictures.
There will be a brief memorial service at StoryPoint, and a graveside service later in Texas. She will be interred at Preston Bend Cemetery near Pottsboro, TX. The family wishes to extend our sincere thanks to the amazing staff at StoryPoint and Hearth Hospice.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial donations be directed to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital (www.stjude.org) or to Hearth Hospice (www.hearthhospice.com).
