Carmen was a member of Mt. Sterling Freewill Baptist Church. She loved singing Southern Gospel music, going bargain hunting at yard sales, sunshine and flowers, but her family above all. Her family was constantly in the forefront of her thoughts, placed before her own needs. Nothing made her happier than knowing her family was healthy and cared for. She was without question, one of the most selfless and giving ladies one could ever meet.
