CONCORD, CA (June 21, 2022) — Carolyn F. Gregg departed this plane of existence with the setting sun on May 16, 2022 in Reno, Nevada. Survived by her son Frank M. Chasseur and daughter, Shannon Chasseur; she will be missed by many.
Foremost, Carolyn was an unconditionally loving mother, confidant, and friend. Her life was spent in devotion to the ones she loved, including our lord and savior Jesus Christ. She was born and raised in Concord to Charles and Francis Davis. She graduated from Mount Diablo High School in the class of 1961.
After a few years in San Francisco, Carolyn moved back to Concord to raise her children and breed championship Collies. She was a voracious reader with a lifelong love of learning. Dancing to Neil Diamond and Dr. Hook were common occurrences for this artistically inclined and whimsically natured soul. Endurance horseback riding was her passion. Countless long distance rides were made in training for the Tevis Cup competition, a 100-mile ride through the high Sierra mountains.
In her leisure, she would trot the trails of Mt. Diablo on her trusty steed, Sinbad, and volunteer at local animal shelters. San Francisco Bay is where she honed her sailing skills in preparation for her voyage of the Greek Isles. Years were spent embracing the aloha spirit while living on and venturing around the Hawaiian Islands.
Blazing the trail to another realm she leaves behind the love of her life, John, living angel Donna, and Hanai daughters Kehau and Raina. Her legacy lives on through her three grandchildren: Hunter, FJ, and Kaia. Every fiber of her being was engulfed in the role of being “Nana” and “Gigi”. A one-of-a-kind grandmother, she sang “Itsy Bitsy Spider” like no other.
Carolyn was an admirable human being with the innate ability to make you feel heard without judgement and effortlessly relate with compassion. Highly attuned to the spiritual world- she was mindful, present, and patient. An intellectual wit and a keen sense of humor made for a consistently easy conversation.
I love you, Mommy. P.S. Moisturize.
