She was born February 9, 1973 in Warren to Christine and the late Theodore Sladewski. She married her high school sweetheart, Lucas Edwards, on December 27, 1997 in St. Peter & Paul Catholic Church in Ionia.

Carrie graduated from Ionia High School in 1991 and from Central Michigan University in 1997 and was the After School Program Coordinator with the Port Huron Area School District for several years. She was active with St. Christopher Catholic Church and had a heart for the Lord. She belonged to several Bible studies, and was known for her Post-It note ministry: “Look up: Jesus is coming.” She was athletic and enjoyed the outdoors, but more than anything, loved being a mom to her two beautiful children.

Visitation will be 2-4 & 6-9 p.m. Thursday in the Marysville Funeral Home with a time of sharing at 8 p.m.

Carrie will lie in state from 10:30 a.m. until the time of the Funeral Mass at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, August 1, 2014 in St. Christopher Catholic Church. The Reverend Arthur Baranowski will officiate.

The Rite of Committal will follow in Caswell Cemetery, Kimball Township.
