Carrie accepted Christ at an early age attending Wahalak Missionary Baptist Church until she moved to Detroit, Michigan, where she united with New Mt. Herman Missionary Baptist Church. At New Mt. Herman, she served the church as a member of the Nurses Guild. Upon retiring, she moved to Pushmataha, Alabama to be near her mother. She reunited with Wahalak Missionary Baptist Church. She continued to work for the Master at Wahalak by serving on the Kitchen Committee, as a Sunday School Secretary and president of the Home Mission Society. Visiting the Nursing Home, driving the sick to their doctor’s appointment and to the store, when she was able to do so, gave her a sense of purpose. When her health began to fail-she stayed in touch with the sick by calling to check on them.
