Carrie J (Miller) Hammond

May 5, 1973 - August 13, 2014

Carrie J. (Miller) Hammond, age 41 was granted her angel wings on August 13, 2014, following a two year courageous battle with Glioblastoma. Her final days were spent surrounded by family and friends that Carrie had touched in some small way throughout her short, yet very memorable life.

She was born on May 5, 1973, in Columbus to her parents, Terry R. Miller and Susan K. (Carroll) Flesher. Carrie was a 1991 graduate of Brown County High School and went on to earn an Associate's Degree in Business from the Indiana Business College in Columbus. She married Kenneth H. "Kenny" Hammond on December 6, 1996 at the Nashville Christian Church.

Carrie worked as a Front Desk Clerk at the Abe Martin Lodge in Nashville from 2011 to 2012. Prior to that, she worked as a Secretary at the Center for Women and Children in the Bloomington Hospital from 1996 to 2010.

Carrie is survived by her husband Kenny; mother: Susan K. (Don) Flesher of Nashville, father: Terry R. Miller of Bean Blossom; children: Karlie and Caleb Hammond both of Nashville; and a sister: Trina L. (Donald) Asher of Nashville. She will be remembered by her paternal grandmother: Marie Miller of Franklin; maternal grandfather: Ross (Mary) Carroll of North Vernon; aunts: Cathy Bright, Anna "Sis" Miller and Betty Bay all of Franklin; uncle: Ty Carroll of Nashville; several nieces, nephews and cousins.

She was preceded in death by her maternal grandmother: June Carroll; paternal grandfather: James Miller; and an uncle: James Miller II.

Throughout Carrie's battle, she always made her children her top priority. Carrie never missed Karlie's cheerleading competitions, Caleb's soccer matches or spending time spoiling her nieces and nephews. Carrie enjoyed working in her flower gardens, feeding the birds, taking photographs and vacationing at the beach.

The Rev. Barb Wood will conduct a funeral service on Saturday, August 16th at 10:30 a.m. at Meredith-Clark Funeral Home Cremation & Personalization Center, 179 E. Mulberry Street in Morgantown. Friends may call from 5 to 8:00 p.m. on Friday, August 15th at the funeral home. Burial will be at Greenlawn Cemetery in Nashville.

Family of Carrie, I am so sorry for your loss. I work at Blgtn Hospital and although I didn't know her that well, I talked to her on the phone a lot and passed her in the cafe. She was always smiling and friendly to everyone. I hope you find peace and comfort in knowing that she is in a better place and not here on earth suffering. God Bless You. Terri Denson
