Carla loved her children, and she was always surrounded by photos of her family and cats. She was active in the Episcopal church and had a strong faith. Carla had a creative flair and was a talented artist. She enjoyed reading, playing tennis, ballet, Christmas lights, the beach, Waffle House, CVS, soap operas and daytime talk shows. Her infectious laugh would always make you smile.

Carla was one of a kind. We will love and miss her but rejoice in knowing we will see her again.
