Carrie graduated from Wyoming High School in 1987. She graduated from Sinclair College in 1998 with a degree in Registered Nursing. She was an RN who worked as a floor nurse at both Deaconess Hospital and Ft. Hamilton Hospital, before becoming a Case Manager at United Healthcare.
Carrie enjoyed spending time at her "Home Away From Home" at Brookville Lake with family and friends. She enjoyed football, music, car shows, riding in the Volkswagen Thing and the golf cart at the lake with the dog, Ollie aka "Buddha".
Carrie was a devoted mother who attended every event that her daughter, Sadie, was a part of growing up. She supported her daughter through everything from playing football to earning her CDL license. She was a caregiver who took her bonus kids under her wings and really supported them as her own. She treated everyone as family and she lit up a room with her contagious smile!
