Carolyn Rose Hartmus

Carolyn Rose Hartmus, 58, of Waverly, passed away while battling a re-occurrence of breast cancer, early Thursday morning, October 27, 2016, while resting peacefully at home. She was born in Chillicothe on April 21, 1958, to Dixie (Harrison) Hartmus and Ronald “Steve” Hartmus, both surviving.

She is also survived by her loving husband, Steven E. Bobo; her daughter, BethAnne Hartmus-Bobo, son-in-law John Creeger, and her much loved granddaughters Guinevere “Guine” Creeger, and Emerson “Emme” Creeger of Columbus; three sisters, Cindy (Roy) Mullins of Waverly, Treva (Chris) Hay of Waverly, Holly (Scott) Clary of Chillicothe; Father-in-law Jesse “Junior” Bobo; a sister-in-law Sheryl (Bill Hall) Benson of Waverly; four nieces Heather (Caleb Bapst) DeJean, Amanda (Brandon) Ealey, Serenity (Lee Chavez) Mullins, and Olivia Clary; a great niece Myah Mullins, and three great nephews Jay Mullins, Greyson Chavez, and Jaxon Ealey.

She was preceded in death by her step-father Frank Turner, mother-in-law Okereta (Smallwood) Bobo, and nephew Elijah Hartmus.

Carolyn graduated from Waverly High School in 1976 as a member of the National Honor Society. She attended Hocking College where she completed her Licensed Practical Nurse certification in 1981, then went on to obtain her Associate Degree in nursing from Hocking College in 1983. For 39 years she dedicated herself to providing care to patients at Adena Reginal Medical Center, where she worked as both a nursing assistant and Registered Nurse.

Carolyn was an avid Buckeye and NASCAR fan and loved to travel to games and races around the country. Carolyn selflessly assisted the less fortunate, looked out for friends and family, but most of all enjoyed being a Nene to Guine and Emme, whom she spoiled rotten and traveled with frequently.

Remembrance will be held Monday, October 31, 2016, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., at the Boyer Funeral Home in Waverly, Ohio, 125 West 2nd Street.

Memorial Luncheon will be held Tuesday, November 1, 2016 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Pump House Center for the Arts in Chillicothe, Ohio, 1 Enderlin Circle.

For both the Memorial Luncheon and the Remembrance, Carolyn wanted this time to be a celebration of her life and the family has requested that you come dressed in scrubs, casual work attire, or favorite NASCAR, Buckeye, or other Sports Team clothing (except for the Team up North).

The family would like to extend a special thanks to Adena Reginal Floor 3A and Adena Hospice Care for treating Carolyn like a member of the family and giving her the best care possible over the last few weeks.
