Carm was a truly wonderful woman, an excellent nurse, a fun co-worker, and although I hadn't seen her for many years, I will always treasure having known and worked with her.

Carmen was a second mother to me during the late 50s and early 60s. I was her daughter Terri Lynn's best friend from 7th grade through high school graduation and she always treated me like another of her girls. And I'm sure I was one of the gals who she came in to the hospital to help during childbirth. My first son was almost two months early and she was with me, and my husband, the whole time.

Carm was a fixture in L&D. She was kind to her patients, efficient and knowledgeable. I can remember her laugh, her smile and her heart. RIP Carm.
