It is with great sadness that the family of Carolyn Marie Hiatt Hibbeln announces her passing on Wednesday, May 23, 2018, at the age of 58 years. After a 2 ½ year battle with cancer, she passed away peacefully, surrounded by family.

Born January 1st 1960 in Santa Rosa, California, she was raised in the quiet town of Boonville. She was president and valedictorian of her graduating class at Anderson Valley High school in 1978. She married her high school sweetheart, Michael, in 1979, and her 2 children were born within 6 years of their union. A banker by profession, she retired in February 2018 after 21 years of dedicated service for River City Bank of Placerville. She was actively involved in her community, and served a term as the president of Soroptimist International of Placerville. She spearheaded the creation of the Helping Hands Program, which provides emergency relief funding to women in crisis.
A California girl at heart, she relocated to Idaho with her family in 1993, where they spent 3 years and made lifelong friends. The family returned to California in 1997 and settled in Placerville, where they spent the last 21 years. A wonderful wife, mother, sister and friend, she spent her free time traveling, gardening, reading, and enjoying life to its fullest with family and friends.
Carolyn was preceded in death by her parents, Kay and Shirley Hiatt, her grandparents Elmer and Ethel Hiatt, and R.E. and Florin Gurley.
