Carrie Ann (Rice) Carver passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday August 10, 2021 at home after an extended illness.
Carrie was born on October 3, 1975 in Traverse City, Michigan. She is survived by her devoted husband Mathew Carver, and they would have celebrated 26 years together this year. She is also survived by daughters Victoria and Gillian Carver, parents Ernie and Catherine Rice of Alden and sister Shannon (Brice) Buntjer of Bellaire, in-laws, Todd and Sue Carver and sister in-law Christa (Carver) Winandy of Plano, Texas and several nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts and uncles. She will also be missed by her special companion and therapy dog Ronin.
Carrie was an accomplished flutist who had studied music both at Interlochen and Hope College. She then attended Northwestern College in Traverse City, Michigan. She enjoyed many years of performing with her mom in competitions, at weddings, at church with the choir and for many special occasions in the church. She took her knowledge of the flute and helped teach, not only her daughters, but other aspiring flutists. She spent several years working at home and was quite the computer whiz. She especially enjoyed her family vacations. She was a strong fighter who took everything that life threw at her in stride. She will be missed greatly by many.
A celebration of Carrie's life will be held from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Alden Depot, 10670 Coy St, Alden, MI 49612 on Saturday, September 11, 2021.
