I remember how charming and vivacious Carolyn was in high school. She just never knew a stranger and always treated everyone the same. She was a few years older and, of course, I looked up to her as a result. My deepest condolences to Ron and her whole family. A bright and shining light has left the world, but her love and memories remain with us. My God's peace and love be with her family. Sally Parker Bateman

I read about the recent death of Carolyn and I know Ron and the Crockett and Huddleston families and loved ones have saddened hearts today. So I wanted to share this beautiful scripture where our heavenly father, Jehovah, (Psalm 83:18), promises us that he is going to do away with man's greatest enemy, death. Rev. 21: 4; "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. Isaiah 33:24 guarantees us: "And no resident will say "I am sick." God's kingdom that Jesus taught us to pray for at Matt. 6: 9, 10 will bring about these wonderful promises, including the resurrection. None of us are guaranteed tomorrow, but we are all guaranteed a resurrection. (John 5:28, John 6:40, John 11:25) Also, Titus 1: 2 tells us this promise of a resurrection: "is based on a hope of the everlasting life that God, who cannot lie, promised long ago." Isaiah 26:19 "Your dead will live......And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life." Isaiah 25:8 "He will swallow up death forever. For Jehovah himself has spoken it." For more comforting scriptures please visit: http://bit.ly/1K38EFt. It has given me hope, strengthened my faith and helped me find the answer to Why? I know it will do the same for you. Jehovah invites you to throw all your burdens on him and he will sustain you in your time of grief. It is my prayer this scripture will give you comfort in your grief.

Ron I appreciate your pain.

It is so sad that Ron will not have Carolyn at his side any longer. She was his main strength and truly a wonderful life long mate and partner. We will also miss her.

I'm so sorry to see this. I used to live on Garrett, and Carolyn and I shared many conversations about the houses in our old neighborhood and their history. She was someone who lit up the room, the minute she entered, and brought cheer to any group. It has been an honor to know her and work with her in the Houston Kennel Club. My deepest condolences on your loss.

Carolyn Ann (Huddleston) Crockett, 71, died in Houston, Texas on January 11, 2017 from a heart attack after long fight with cancer. She had been a resident of Houston, Texas for 40 years.
Carolyn was born in Ballinger, Texas on October 16, 1945. She was the only child of Ruth Wilkens Huddleston and O. L. (Doc) Huddleston of Ballinger, Texas. Carolyn graduated from Ballinger High School in 1964. In high school, she was a twirler, cheerleader, and valedictorian of her class. She received a Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy from The University of Texas in 1970. Carolyn married Ron Crockett in Ballinger, Texas on June 6, 1970. She worked as a pharmacist in Corpus Christi, Texas, Denver, Colorado and Houston, Texas until 1978. After that, she followed her passion of showing dogs in obedience and conformation, collecting antiques, and working on their historic house and yard with her husband Ron. She was a breeder of Pomeranians and showed dogs professionally.
Carolyn was a petite woman, but she was known as someone with big hair, a big smile, a big attitude, and a willingness to share her knowledge about grooming and showing dogs. She loved Halloween and wished it lasted at least half of the year. Her little dogs were the focus of her life and much of the time the family life revolved around the dogs and dog shows.
Carolyn was a member of the Houston Kennel Club, Houston Japanese Chin Club, American Pomeranian Club and the Toy Club of Greater Houston.
Carolyn is survived by her husband, Ron Crockett, brother-in-law, Col. William Crockett of Virginia, sister- in-law, Renate Crockett of Virginia, one nephew, David Fletcher of Texas, and nieces, Andrea Fletcher of Texas, Petra Todd and Cindy Connolly of Pennsylvania, and Sonja Lambert of Virginia, and several great nieces and nephews.
Family and friends are cordially invited to a visitation on Friday, January 20, 2017 from six until nine o’clock in the evening at the Bradshaw-Carter Funeral Home, 1734 West Alabama Street in Houston. A burial will take place at eleven o’clock in the morning on Saturday, January 21, 2017 at Glenwood Cemetery, 2525 Washington Avenue in Houston.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial donations to Second Chance Poms, Inc. in Lake Jackson, Texas, your local dog charity, or M. D. Anderson Cancer Center.
