Tribute & Message From The Family

Carolyn F. Urban passed away peacefully on January 18, 2022. She was 73 years old. Carolyn was born in Philadelphia to the late Julia and Constantine Urban. She is survived by her son, Phillip Urban (Kelley), and granddaughter, Amanda Urban.

Carolyn worked for the Philadelphia Police Department as a Captain's Clerk for the 8th Police District, previously at the 3rd and 9th districts. She retired after 45 years of dedicated service. Carolyn was a lover of cruises and took many trips to St. Thomas, Cozumel in Mexico and Jamaica just to name a few. She enjoyed swimming with the dolphins and lounging on the beach. Her cat, Lily was a big part of her life as well, after rescuing her from the Women's Animal Center. She enjoyed QVC Home Shopping even if she was just browsing the channel for the newest coat or purse. She also loved the casinos in Atlantic City. Carolyn's only grandchild was the love of her life and would spoil her each weekend when Phil would bring Amanda to visit. They would go to breakfast at Bob Evans or Liberty Diner. She enjoyed going to Sesame Place with her granddaughter and watching the live shows. She enjoyed wind chimes and gardening.

Relatives and friends are invited to Carolyn's Life Celebration on Saturday, January 29th, 2022 from 10:00AM to 12:00PM at John F. Givnish Life Celebration Home, 10975 Academy Road, Philadelphia, PA 19154. A funeral service will begin at 12 noon followed by interment at Our Lady of Grace Cemetery in Langhorne.
