Carrie was a vibrant loving woman whose love saw no flaw. She was a natural comforter, crafter, artist and her imagination was unmatched! Carrie’s cooking abilities were unmatched and seemed to be second nature from baking to frying. She had a knack for creating: one day it could be masks and the next it could be a jewelry set.
She was a wonderful mother always putting her children first and loving them through all of their accomplishments and lessons. She was wise in a way that may startle some people who didn’t understand the way her spirit moved and felt and understood just about everything. Her love and loyalty is and will forever be unmatched. She loved openly and unconditionally near and far. Her patience will always be remembered and the realness of her will forever be in our hearts and minds. Carrie lived an impactful life with no complaints or regrets, filled with love, compassion, empathy and strength. She prided herself on her appearance and made sure she wasn’t malicious or mean with her intent.
She was very generous, opening her home to family that had been in need, giving the best advice and telling you like it was; handing out art work, accessories and anything else she felt she wanted to give. Carrie was a skilled hairstylist, she would do hair for family and strangers for many, many years. Carrie was also a hard worker, working in multiple industries over the years.
She loved her family with her whole heart and made no exceptions to that love. Carrie was a wife that would go to the ends of the earth and back for her husband loving and supporting until the end of time. She was a very devoted sister always there to lend an ear or anything else they needed. Her arms were always open if they were needed. We will remember her elegance, honesty, love, compassion, food, creativity, smile and so much more. She will truly be missed.

Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi
Lord, make me a channel for thy peace,
That where there is hatred,
I may bring love
That where there is wrong,
I may bring the spirit of forgiveness
That where there is discord,
I may bring harmony
That where there is error,
I may bring truth
That where there is doubt,
I may bring faith
That where there is despair,
I may bring hope
That where there are shadows,
I may bring light
That where there is sadness,
I may bring joy
Lord, grant that I may seek rather to
comfort than to be comforted
To understand, rather than to be understood
To love, rather than to be loved
For it is by self-forgetting that one finds
It is by forgiving that one is forgiven
It is by dying that one awakens to Eternal Life. – Amen –
