Carroll Barnes Pulis
Sept. 28, 1943 - Dec. 2, 2022

Carroll Pulis returned home to her heavenly father at her residence in
Wickenburg, Ariz., after a hard-fought battle with cancer.

Carroll was born in Orange, N.J. 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 career
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 and then Durango, Colo., 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 as 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 Connection in
