This biography from the Archives of AskART:
She was born Carolyn Platts on August 10, 1937, as the only child of a family dating back to the Mayflower and President John Adams. Growing up in Holyoke, Massachusetts, she developed an early love for art that remained with her throughout her life.

In Holyoke she met a young German engineer, Walter Hoeckmann.  Following a courtship in both the U.S. and Europe, they married in Hamburg, Germany, in 1959. After the birth of their first daughter, they moved to Concord, CA., where Walter got a job with Standard Oil. After their sons Erik and Olaf were born, Walter was reassigned to Standard Oil in La Habra CA. They discovered La Habra Heights in the early 1960s and purchased land for the new home, where the family grew up and Carolyn lived out her life.

With the addition of a second daughter the family was complete and Carolyn began serious art work, first in oils, then acrylics and eventually watercolors, which she favored.

Beginning in the 1970s Carolyn’s involvement as an artist expanded to include leadership on the Fine Arts Board and service as co-chairperson of the Hillcrest Fine Arts Festival with her husband.

Carolyn’s pen and ink drawing of Hillcrest Church, where she served as a deaconess, is still used as its logo. Carolyn and Walter were both active in the campaign for incorporation of the City of La Habra Heights.
