Mrs. Carr's husband was the love of her life and her children were her greatest joy. She loved having her family with her and welcomed all of their friends as if family also. Her home was often called "the happy house." Her love of music, literature and nature sustained her until her last days. As a devout christian she loved the Lord and shared his love with all she met.
