They then lived in Kingsland before moving to Mason in 1977.

Carrie fought a long and courageous battle with COPD (Brondziectasis) but never lost her good sense of humor. She was a member of the Brownwood Church of Christ and then the Mason Church of Christ. She loved her family and her church families! Carrie enjoyed playing pinochle with her husband and family and visiting with friends.
