“Mary Carolyn was a lifelong beauty who generated captivating grace, inspired everyone around her to be better and never had an unkind word to say about anyone but the occasional politician,” wrote a daughter, Cynthia Haynes “Cindy” O’Carroll of Westminster, in a biographical profile of her mother.

“Although she was happy to keep her own company, she delighted in being surrounded by her large, loving family and never ever declined a party, a cocktail, or an invitation to dance,” she wrote. “She defined a life well-lived by embracing fun, living simply, thinking deeply, loving truly and always being kind.”

She was a fan of her dog Beau, a Sheltie, who died some years ago, family members said.

Mrs. Haynes was a former communicant of St. Mark Roman Catholic Church in Catonsville.

Because of the pandemic, plans for a celebration-of-life gathering are incomplete.

In addition to her daughter, she is survived by her son, Richard Haynes of Middletown, Delaware; another daughter, Stacie Haynes Dollenger of Rising Sun; seven grandchildren; and 10 grandchildren.

Mrs. Haynes’ husband of 47 years, Richard George “Dick” Haynes, a salesman, died in 1999.
