Carroll Barnes Pulis
September 28, 1943 - December 2, 2022
Carroll Pulis returned home to her heavenly father at her residence in Wickenburg, AZ after a hard-fought battle with cancer. Carroll was born in Orange, New Jersey to James Thomas Barnes and Mary Vroman Barnes. She graduated from high school in Madison, New Jersey and Kathrin Gibbs School in Montclair, New Jersey. Her early working carrier was as a legal secretary for a major pharmaceutical company until she returned home to raise three wonderful children. In 1981 she and her family moved west to Wickenburg, AZ and then Durango, Co where she spent much of her time in outdoor activity including hiking, horseback riding, and skiing along with probably her all-time favorite job working in the rental shop at Purgatory Ski Resort . She traveled considerably with her husband, Art, to Europe, Asia, South America, and New Zealand. Probably some of her most interesting trips were to Ukraine, Tibet, Nepal, and India while connected with the international missionary organization, Youth With A Mission. Upon moving back to Wickenburg in 2001, Carroll continued to be active with outdoor activities including the women's riding group, Las Damas as well with Las Senoras de Socorro where she served on the board of directors. In 2009 she wrote and had published a children's book, "Lightning Reed, A Mighty Fine Steed." The book was beautifully illustrated by local artist, Patti Georgas. Carroll is survived by her husband Arthur G. Pulis, III, three children: Arthur G. Pulis, IV, Elizabeth Southworth (Pulis) Mora, James Carroll Pulis, and brother, James Thomas Barnes II. She is also survived by three grandchildren, Isabel Elena Mora, Isaak Edward Mora, and Sophia Rose Pulis. A celebration of her life and resurrection will be in Wickenburg sometime after the first of the year. Memorial gifts could be made in her name to K-9 Konnection, Wickenburg.
