Meet Your Neighbors: The Wolfrums
Continuing our series of interviews with our Southern Gables neighbors, to help us get to know and appreciate each other. Ed and Carolyn Wolfrum have been raising their family in a place of friendly cooperation and community spirit… if your guess is Southern Gables you might be right. Let’s see. Interviewed by Bruce McDonald.
Bruce: Carolyn, I heard your name from our friends Justina and Glenn. They said they had met you on their walks around the neighborhood, and that you were so friendly and interesting. Will you introduce us to the rest of your family?
Carolyn: Yes, my husband is Ed and we have two girls, Anne and Grace.
How long have you lived in Southern Gables? We have lived here since November of 2002. That’s a lifetime for both of our girls, so they are Southern Gables “true native” residents.
What are a few things that you like the most about the Southern Gables community? We love the beauty of everyone’s yards, how friendly people are. It has been a great place to raise our daughters.
Do you have a favorite memory with your Southern Gables neighbors? We used to love the End of School Year festival at Green Gables.
What is the most neighborly experience you’ve had or seen in our neighborhood? Our neighbor across the street shares our wheelbarrow. We now share the wheelbarrow with quite a few neighbors. It’s a great connection!
What are your hobbies? Your work? Ed is a Researcher/Manager at the National Renewable Energy Lab and I am an Itinerant Teacher of the Deaf for Jeffco Schools. We love working in our garden, running, bike riding, reading and traveling.
What is your favorite quote or saying? Be the change you want to see in the world. — Gandhi
Is there anything else you want us to know about you? Our daughters go to school at Carmody Middle and Lakewood High School. Anne is 16 and Grace is 13.
