Obituary of Carolyn June Frost

Carolyn J. Frost, 73, of Otsego, Michigan reunited with loved ones in Heaven on Saturday, January 23, 2021, from her daughter’s home, in Battle Creek, where she was surrounded by her loving family after a two year battle with cancer. She was born to the late Willie and Dorothy (Buckner) Cox on June 17, 1947, in Monterey, Tennessee. Carolyn wed Donald Frost “Frosty”, on September 27, 1997, at a ceremony in Battle Creek, Michigan. Growing up with a large family, she was one of seven children, Carolyn had strong family ties. Upon graduating from high school, she went on to further her education, began a career with Eaton Corporation where she eventually retired as a Core Administrator. She was completely adored by all who knew her. Carolyn didn’t let the grass grow under her feet, she loved camping and fishing, taking walks with her sisters, and when the weather in Michigan started to get a little chilly her and her husband, Frosty, would head to Florida for the winter. She was an avid reader and an accomplished writer, penning many a poem. She enjoyed trips to the casino, but for Carolyn, her favorite place and times were when she was surrounded by her family, who completely filled her with happiness and joy. Her hugs, sense of adventure, compassionate ways, and smiling face will be missed by those who had the privilege of being a part of her life. She is preceded in passing by her son, Brian Cushman; her parents, Willie and Dorothy Cox; and siblings, Marland Cox and Lucille Rodriguez, granddaughter, Alysse Cushman, brother-in-law Charles L. Frost, and sister-in-law LaVerne Frost. Carolyn is survived by her husband, Donald “Frosty” Frost of Otsego; her children, LeAnn (Ken) Crouch of Battle Creek, Brad (Sonya) Cushman of Battle Creek, Ben (Julie) Cushman of Alabama, Kenny (Tiffany) Frost of California, April (Joe) Wesner of Missouri, David (Ronda) Frost of North Carolina, and Kathy (Jimmy) Carlin of Battle Creek. She will also be missed by nineteen grandchildren and seventeen great-grandchildren who she completely adored, her siblings, Barb (Don) Butcher of Battle Creek, Eva (David) May of Ludington, Brenda (Bob) May of Battle Creek, and Bob (Dot) Cox of Massachusetts, and a host of nieces and nephews.
