Carolyn Deyton Crisp, 72, of Robbinsville, NC, died peacefully, Saturday, August 21, 2021, at home after a battle with liver cancer.  She was a native of Robbinsville, a graduate of Robbinsville High School and a member of Tuskeegee Baptist Church. 

She was the daughter of Colleen Deyton, and the late Posey Deyton of Robbinsville. 

In addition to her mother, Carolyn is survived by her husband, Lowell Crisp, of the Tuskeegee Community, of Robbinsville; her daughter, Tracy Crisp Hyde, of Robbinsville; granddaughter, Shelby Anderson and husband, Blake, of Robbinsville; grandson, Camden Hyde, a senior at Western Carolina University; a very special great grandson, Dallas Anderson; one brother, Randall Deyton, and his wife, Linda, of Robbinsville; and several nieces and nephews of which she was very fond. 

Carolyn’s grandchildren knew they were very special to her.  Her life centered around loving and caring for them and helping whenever and wherever there was a need.  In her care for them, at an early age, she started reading them bible stories about her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
