Carrie was born February 11, 1982, in Flint, Michigan, the daughter of Larry and Mary (Jacobs) Luttermoser. She graduated from Lapeer West High School and was a dedicated employee of McLaren Health Care. She transitioned from daddy’s girl to spoiled wife when she married Craig LaFave in 2009. Carrie was truly a friend to all, and her kind and compassionate spirit touched everyone she met. She loved sunshine, lazy days and late nineties hip-hop. Known for her dazzling smile, quick wit and playful sarcasm, she was a trusted confidant who was always there to lend an ear or a couple of bucks when needed. An old soul from the day she was born, she embraced all things cozy, comfortable, warm & sweet. Carrie held the unofficial world record for the most screenings of the classic film, “Footloose,” she was renowned for her extensive collection of two-dollar bills and may have invented the post-it note. She treasured time with family, friends and fur babies. Gone too soon, she’ll leave her mark on the hearts of many and will be missed by all who knew her.

Your wings were ready, but our hearts were not.

Surviving Carrie are her husband; Craig LaFave of Swartz Creek, Michigan, mother; Mary Luttermoser of Goetzville, Michigan, brothers; Corey Luttermoser (Tiffany) of Davison, Michigan, and Andrew Luttermoser (Lana) of Davison, nieces and nephews; Cassie, Corey, Samantha, Hannah, Kalie, Kadence, Gage, Tyler, Mikahla, Natalie, Nathan, Madie, Brett, and Oriana; and many other aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

Carrie was preceded in death by her Father, Larry Luttermoser of Goetzville, MI, and grandparents, Steve, the cat, Maurice the pug and many honorable fur babies.

In lieu of flowers, feel free to make a donation in Carrie’s name to the Genesse County Humane Society.

    Aunt Carrie ❤️
    I know we didn’t see each other much and I wish I could have cherished our time more that I wanted to. Every moment and memory of anything reminds me of you and I cry everytime. I love you auntie.

    Carrie was a wonderful person to work with. Even when we no longer worked together we still reached out. To her friends and family my heartfelt condolences to you all.

    I knew Carrie from her spunkiness at Meijer. She was so cute with her looks, her personality, and her quick, funny remarks. She always seemed so much older to me, with her intense knowledge of people.
    Tom met her a couple times and always liked her quick wit.
    I was so happy for both of you when you married. I can only imagine the fun and stories you made and told.

    I know your (Craig) pain is unimaginable right now, but I also know in time, the great memories you made together will take some of that pain, and turn it into smiles. I pray for you, and your family, and the prayers don’t stop today after this condolence. Your friends (including me) love you, and send words of comfort from our hearts, each and every day, all the way from Arizona. Miles don’t mean anything when it is sent from the heart.

    May God bless you and send you comfort.

    Denise & Tom
