“Binky” as she was affectionately known was a graduate of Colleton County High School, and continued her education at Claflin University.

Her ministry took her to many places; but what was most rewarding is when she preached on top of Pikes Peak Mountain in Colorado Springs

At an early age Carrie accepted Christ into her life and joined Mount Olive Baptist Church in Walterboro, South Carolina. During her tenure at Mount Olive She served on the gospel choir and senior choir as lead soloist. Her voice was so spiritually filled that she was called upon to sing the Our Father Prayer at the inauguration of Senator Fritz Hollings of South Carolina.

Throughout her lifetime Binky touched many with her voice and will be truly missed by each one of them.
