Carolyn Yvonne Malcom, 80, of Cozad, Nebraska, died May 13, 2023 at her home in Cozad with her family by her side.

She was born on January 21st, 1943, in Farnam, NE, to Earl and Belle (Derra) Thomalla. Carolyn was a loving daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin, and friend who had a kind heart and always put others before herself.

After graduating from Gothenburg Public Schools, Carolyn attended Dental Assistant School in Lincoln. She worked as a Dental Assistant in Cozad, and spent several years working at Monroe Auto, Jack and Jill Grocery Store, and Baldwin Filters. Carolyn was also Co-Owner and Manager of Malcom Plumbing, Heating, and Air Conditioning.

Carolyn was a devoted member of Christ the King Catholic Church in Cozad, where she was Catholic Lady of the Year in 2019, served as a member of the Altar Society and Funeral Committee, and was actively involved as a CCD Teacher, choir member, and participant in the Rosary Prayer Chain.

Her priorities were her faith, family, and friends, whom she loved so deeply. In her free time, Carolyn enjoyed music, cooking, reading, sewing, watching Husker sports, and planting beautiful flowers at her home. She loved family holiday gatherings where she treasured spending time with all those most important to her.
