CARYN LEIGH BAINS Surrounded by her loving family and dogs, Caryn Leigh Bains, 67, passed through the veil into eternal rest on Sept. 10, 2021, after a hard-fought five-year battle with ovarian cancer. Although trained as a lawyer, she chose a successful 25-year career with Glaxo Smith Kline as a pharmaceutical rep. Caryn was a wonderful wife, mother, and friend to many and her powerful positive spirit will be sadly missed. She is preceded in death by her father Albert Sidney Bains III and mother Ann Lowery Bains.
She leaves behind her adoring husband Rolf Meinhold; her children John, Erika, and Emmett; and her dogs Clyde and Stella.
Funeral services were held at Holy Innocents’ Episcopal Church, Atlanta, Ga., on Saturday, Sept. 18, at 11 a.m. Always sensitive to the visual, Caryn requested that funeral attendees wear life-affirming colors. In lieu of flowers, the family requests a donation to be made in Caryn’s name to the Georgia Ovarian Cancer Alliance.
