Carla served in the United States Army from 1979 to 1981 and received an honorable discharge. She went on to complete the Pasadena Police Academy in 1983, and was a regular volunteer with the Pasadena Police. She had a successful career as a paralegal in Harris and Montgomery Counties for over 30 years and touched the lives of countless individuals and families in their times of family transition. She was a diehard fisherman! She won the Gasper Goo Queen Crown in 1992 at Harmon Creek Marina in Walker County! Her wishes were to be cremated and her ashes sprinkled at her favorite fishing hole! Carla was deeply loved by her family and friends and will be missed every day.

Memorial Service is Friday, January 15, 10:30 am at the Ark Church, 450 Humble Tank Road, Conroe, Texas 77304. Other than flowers, Carla would love for you to help someone in need, and feed them a good meal!
