Carolyn was born Jan 25, 1916 in Montgomery, AL to Martha and Andrew J. Collier. She married Eugene Rogers Enslen and had a distinguished career with the state Supreme Court in Montgomery, where she was secretary to Chief Justice Howell Heflin of the Supreme Court of Alabama before he became a U. S. Senator.
Carolyn was predeceased by her husband, her daughter, Elissa Enslen Bouchillon and her brother Franklin Collier. She is survived by her grandchildren Thomas L. (Toby) Kilgore, III (Shellie) of Atlanta, GA, and Ashley Wimmer (Rick) of Winston-Salem, NC, her great grandchildren (Lucy Kilgore, Stuart Kilgore, Holden Kilgore, Collier Wimmer, Lawson Wimmer), her nieces Nancy Williams (Jerry) of Gulf Breeze, FL, and Genie Deason (Jim), and nephew Ed Brown (Debbie) of Birmingham, AL.
A wonderful grandmother, Carolyn will be fondly remembered by her family and friends for her graciousness and sharp wit (and exclamatory use of her canes in later years). The family would like to thank Arbor Acres and their staff for their many years of excellent care.
A memorial service will be held at a later date.
Memorial donations may be made to Trinity Presbyterian Church 1728 S. Hull St., Montgomery, AL 36104.

My condolence to the family. If I read the Obituary right Your loved lived to be 101! Although that seems a long time to us, it isn't the life God promised in the Bible. Thankfully God's promise still stands. I find much comfort in reading these promising text: Isaiah 33:24, Revelation 21:4, and Acts 24:15.
God strengthens us by giving us "the power beyond what is normal" to make it through each passing day. Psalm 46:1 says: "God is our refuge and strength, a help that is readily found in times of distress". Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 36:7; 1 Peter 5:7)
