The Marion Historic Association sends its condolences to the family of Carolyn Adriaansen, former Marion Town Historian for 43 years. Carolyn was the recipient of the “Excellence in Promoting Local History Award” from the Association of Public Historians of New York State. A well known storyteller, promoter of local history, advocate for an independent museum building and baker extraordinaire, Carolyn was well known throughout Wayne County and surrounding areas.

She will undoubtedly be missed but will live on in the memories of all who knew her as well as the legacy of work she has left behind.

In Memoriam
