Jesus gently took our precious daughter, sister and friend into His arms on January 5, 2016. Carrie was born in John Day, Oregon on August 23, 1958 to Jim and Toddy Stovall. She spent her formative years in Eugene, Oregon after moving there with her parents and four siblings in 1961.
In 1974 her family moved to The Dalles, Oregon where she graduated from The Dalles High School in 1976. She worked locally in hospitality and retail before moving to Indian Rocks Beach, Florida where she lived for more than 20 years. She loved her family, friends, her two cats and paddle boarding.
