Carrie Lynn Waldman, 52, departed this life to be with Jesus on the 12th of September, 2017 after a courageous battle with cancer. Carrie was surrounded by her family when she departed this life.

Carrie was born October 19, 1964 to John and Lynda (Hill) Killingsworth in Muskogee, OK. Carrie was the oldest of three siblings. Carrie grew up in Stroud, OK and graduated from Stroud High School in 1982 along with many of her life-long friends. During her school years, Carrie was active in cheerleading and supporting her Stroud Tigers. Some of her favorite classes included journalism and French; and she enjoyed the opportunity to practice French language skills throughout her life.

In 1982, Carrie married the love of her life, Wade Waldman; and they celebrated their 35th anniversary on September 11th. Carrie and Wade went on to have five beautiful daughters and four precious grandchildren whom she cherished.
