Carrie was born on July 22, 1965, in Longview, Texas, to Tipton Tindall and Maude “Pede” Lloyd. She grew up in Texas and graduated from Lewisville High School, class of 1983.

Carrie loved music and loved to dance. She loved animals and nature. Carrie was a beautiful person, selfless and so full of love. She was always reaching out to help strangers even in the midst of her own struggles. She cherished time spent sitting under her tree with her loved ones and her dogs. Carrie was an inspiration to all, in the strength and passion she possessed for all things she loved.
