Carmen was a consummate protector. She was elegant and poised, intentional and honest, steadfast and true. She both loved deeply and is deeply loved by all of those who were around her. Carmen enjoyed nature and gardening, and she was very proud to have earned her Master Gardener certification and to have used those skills in the community. She also greatly loved going to the lake to fish, take in the beauty of nature, and spend treasured time with friends and family; so many of our fondest memories were made there with her.
