Carrie passed away on Saturday April 2, 2011 at her home surrounded by her family. She was the eldest daughter born to Wayne B. Holmes and Eldeene V. Malone, Ogden, Utah.

Carrie married her life-long companion Clark H. Eckersley in Evanston, Wyoming on February 2, 1962.

They also cared for and raised their youngest grandson, Devin Clark Eckerlsey.

Carrie loved to play golf and travel. She cherished family get togethers and took pride in planning family reunions. She had a passion for astrology and loved to read. Carrie was a kind and generous person with a huge heart and she possessed a one-of-a-kind sense of humor that will be greatly missed. Carrie was the matriarch of our family and was always there for us.
