Carolyn Snyder Lott, age 88, of Gardners, passed away Saturday, May 7, 2022, in her home.

Carolyn was born February 10, 1934, in Gettysburg. She grew up on a fruit farm in Adams County, Pennsylvania, and earned a bachelor’s degree from Gettysburg College, where she belonged to the Delta Gamma sorority and played varsity basketball. She was the first Apple Blossom Queen in 1951. She taught math and drivers education after college.

She was married to her husband and high school sweetheart, William (Mac) Lott, for 64 years. Their marriage was an incredible example of love and devotion and has been an inspiration to many. She was loved by all her children and grandchildren.

With boundless energy she loved to entertain, work in her garden, take long drives, play tennis, golf, and snow ski. Carolyn was always up for an exciting adventure whether summiting a mountain peak or co-piloting off road tours with Mac.

Carolyn is survived by her husband; three sons and their spouses, Doug and Jill Lott of Biglerville, Jim and Barb Lott of Gardners, and Dan and Heather Lott of Raleigh, N.C.; her sister, Dee Wells of Gettysburg; eight grandchildren; and numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews. She was preceded in death by three brothers and a sister.
