Carrie enjoyed her life to the fullest as a loving mother, grandmother, and a dear friend to many. She was known in her community as the nice lady with all beautiful flowers. She greeted everyone with kindness and a warm, beautiful smile. Central in her life was her faith in Jesus Christ and she took every opportunity to tell others about Him. She was a member of Brush Arbor Holiness Fellowship and loved her church family very much. She enjoyed helping others with their garden, collecting angels, and completing jigsaw puzzles. She has left a strong legacy to carry on and will be truly missed.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests spreading love to others by doing a random act of kindness in honor of her.
