The family of Carolyn Tweed sadly share her recent passing in Crescent City, California, following her battle with cancer. She was 69 years old.
Carolyn Francis Currie was born July 23rd, 1951 to Charles and Francis Currie, of Hawthorne, California. She was raised in Hawthorne and attended Leuzinger High School. Carolyn was always ready for adventure. She spent her time riding motorcycles in the desert, enjoying days at the beach, and playing with her best friend from across the street, Kathy Kaufman. Kathy and Carolyn were life-long friends who stayed in close contact. Carolyn told stories that often included Kathy.
After her brother and parents moved to Crescent City, Carolyn was not far behind to make Crescent City her home.
Carolyn met Chuck Tweed in Gasquet, California in 1975, and together built a life filled with love, excitement and commitment. Carolyn and Chuck made their home in Crescent City where they raised their family.
Carolyn’s adventures were always fun and filled with family and friends. They included starting a new business in Alaska with her husband, canning food with the Millers, and covered wagon rides with the Straights/Dixons. She treasured campouts while salmon fishing with her brother Jim Currie, her friend Kathy and her husband Lou, and with Chuck. She was a frequent participant at the Jed Smith Mountain Man Rendezvous, camping and shooting with the best of them.
Carolyn always had a go-with-the-flow attitude and was up for just about anything. Throughout the years she gathered her family for many adventures such as camping, being on the river, fishing, house boating, and enjoying beach bonfires while surf fishing.
Carolyn was extremely talented and had many hobbies, including painting, leatherwork (which she learned from her mother) and woodworking (which she learned from her father). One of her many artistic endeavors was learning chain saw art from the late Art Stone.
Carolyn greatly enjoyed her sister-in-laws: the late Leslie McNamer, Crystal Birch and Michelle Strange. Get these ladies together and they could laugh about anything.
Carolyn’s family who will miss and love her forever are; her husband of more than 45 years, Chuck Tweed, sons Charles Tweed (Jennifer) of Crescent City, California, and Christopher Tweed (Michelle) of Central Point, Oregon and daughter Chelsee (Tressen) Smith of Crescent City, California. Along with grandchildren Dawson, Gavyn, and Emma Tweed and Allie and Daxten Smith of Crescent City, California and Riley and Brody Tweed of Central Point, Oregon. Whenever Carolyn saw any of her grandchildren, her smile would light up the room. She also leaves behind her brother Jim Currie whom she loved and respected, along with his wife Vera of Crescent City, California, as well as numerous nieces, nephews and cousins from a large extended family. Her parents Charles and Francis Currie and her son James Tweed preceded her in death.
As one of Jehovah’s witnesses she had dedicated her life to being a disciple of Jesus and she showed this through her love of family, friends and Neighbors (John 13:35). Carolyn very much looked forward to a future free of sickness and death (Revelation 21:4) on a paradisiac earth. (John 5:28-29). No doubt she found great strength and joy in Job 14:14-15 “If a man dies, can he live again? I will wait all the days of my compulsory service until my relief comes. You will call, and I will answer you. You will long for the work of your hands.”
No services are planned for Carolyn but your thoughts and prayers are always welcome.
