Carolyn Gean Denson spent her first day in Heaven on October 28, 2021. She was born May 13, 1947 in Spearfish, South Dakota to the late Arlie and Alice Barger. She was raised and spent her childhood in Mabelvale, Arkansas, and then owned and operated the beauty salon Artistic Splendor in Little Rock. Carolyn later moved to Dallas, and married Wayne Denson in 1991. Together they owned and operated a small commercial bakery until moving to Searcy to help care for her parents. Carolyn loved serving the Lord and was active in the Searcy First United Methodist Church. She was a member of the Cross Class and served others in the Shofar Sisters, Thrift Shop, and Good Sam.
