Carrie was born September 20, 1939, in Miflin, Tennessee, to Gathal Butler Latham and the late Thomas Guy Butler. She attended Chester County High School, Henderson Tennessee. She worked as a seamstress in Henderson, Tennessee, and Wynne, Arkansas, and as a supervisor for Reltoc Manufacturing before she retired. Carrie was full of life and energy, love, a personality that was to the point, and was always taking care of others' needs before her own. After retirement she could be found relaxing on her front porch visiting with friends, cooking a wonderful lunch for her husband and anyone that was to visit. She loved working in her flower garden or searching for yard sales and finding great bargains, but she received the most joy spending time with her children and grandchildren. She was a member of Underwood Baptist Church.
Carrie was preceded in death by her father, Thomas Guy Butler, and brother-in-law, Ray Waller.
Survivors include her husband, Bobby Collins, Florence, Alabama; daughters, Angela Moody (Jeff), Hartselle, Alabama, Allison Lewis (Terry), Florence, Alabama; son, Guy Butler Collins (Elly), Florence, Alabama; mother, Gathal Butler Latham, Miflin, Tennessee; sisters, Linda Gayle Stanford (Jimmy), Jackson, Tennessee, Nell Waller, Orland Park, Illinois; grandchildren, Adam and Anna Moody, DJ Holden and Joel Collins; and several nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.
We would especially like to thank Alacare Hospice for their love, kindness and care during these difficult times.
Pallbearers will be Jeff Moody, Terry Lewis, Adam Moody, DJ Holden, Jimmy Stanford, and Brian Kemp.
