My Story

From an early age, Cari forever made large and lasting impacts on the lives of each person she met. Cari was very proud to be a big sister to Ellie (now 10) and Maddie (now 4). She loved spending time swimming, riding bike, creating plays and dance routines, snuggling while watching movies, and pretty much any activity that revolved around the outdoors. Cari attended Mt. Horeb Intermediate Center where she played an integral part of the school with one particular act of creating The Happy Place Garden. She attended other activities such as church youth and cherub choir, Sunday school, was a member of the Girl Scouts, took piano lessons, volunteered her time with many local charities, and most of all loved her dance lessons in ballet, tap, jazz, and hip-hop. Those who knew her will describe her as a leader, an organizer, sassy and spunky; yet, compassionate. During her illness, she demonstrated the most awesome courage and perserverance. Cari was always willing to put others before her, something that hadn't stopped even in the face of cancer. Cari taught her family and many others how to live, what to experience, what to value, and what is important. She loved playing with her dogs, Buddy and Oliver, her many, many friends, and her family.
