Carolyn Gayaldo Obituary

Carolyn Gayaldo, 53, passed away at Alexian Brother Hospital on June 3rd, 2024. Carolyn’s passing was unexpected and has left her family and friends deeply saddened by the sudden loss. She was born on August 11, 1970, in Colorado, and resided in several places throughout her adult life. 


Carolyn spent the majority of her adult life living in Fort Worth, Texas, where she worked as a court reporter. In 2016, she moved to Illinois with her family. After relocating to Illinois, Carolyn embraced the summer season and found solace in fishing along the Fox River. 


Known for her kindness and her pride in her only daughter, she touched the lives of everyone she met. She also had a deep affection for her beloved pets, including Lucy the bulldog and her cat Karma, who brought her immeasurable joy and comfort throughout her life. She most recently worked at Lake Barrington Shores. 


Carolyn is survived by her daughter, Savanah Gayaldo, and her ex-husband, David Gayaldo, with whom she shared 32 years of marriage. In addition to her immediate family, Carolyn is also survived by her dear friends, Kristy Campbell, William Campbell Jr, and Mary Beth Campbell (deceased), who were like family to her and provided unwavering support throughout her life.


A celebration of life will be held at Laird Funeral Home in Elgin on Friday, June 14, 2024, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Kane County CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) Organization (https://casakanecounty.org/how-to-give/donate-now/), which serves foster children in the community. Carolyn was adopted, and this cause was particularly close to her heart. For information call 847-741-8800 or www.lairdfamilyfuneralservices.com
