On June 20, Jesus so very gently lifted Katie "Nell" (Cravens) Carr, 79, from her tired, worn body and carried her safely to her new home, no longer struggling to breathe or needing assistance to walk. Her heart's desire has been fulfilled.
She was born Feb. 26, 1928, in Livingston, Tenn., and resided in Anderson all of her adult life. She retired from ALAC.
Nell was a member of Valley Grove Free Will Baptist Church.
