Carrie was a dedicated daughter, wife, mother, grandma, sister, aunt, and friend. She treasured family and embraced every moment with them. She was an excellent cook and always made room at her table. Carrie had a strong work ethic and even into her later years it was difficult to keep up with her pace.

She belonged to the Laporte quilters group for over 20 years where she made lasting friendships and it provided her endless hours of enjoyment.
