During her leisure time, she enjoyed gardening, fishing, cooking, and driving. One of our most beloved past memories of her was when she would get stopped by the police for speeding and she always managed not to get a ticket.

Mother Carrie displayed her strength, determination and love for everyone daily especially her grandchildren.
