Carrie Frances Croatt-Moore passed on December 5, 2022 in Lake Havasu City, AZ
Carrie was born May 17, 1974 in Sibley, Iowa to Dennis and Mary (Shea) Croatt. She spent her early years in the Northwest Iowa towns of Hospers, Granville, and Paullina. She was a 1992 graduate of South O’Brien High School in Paullina. After graduation she enrolled at Briar Cliff University in Sioux City. While enrolled at Briar Cliff, Carrie met her husband, Aaron Moore, in the Fall of 1993. They were married in Sioux City at the Cathedral of the Epiphany on June 21, 1997.
One of Carrie’s greatest pleasures was being the mother to her two children, Madeline and Anthony. She was always dedicated to their happiness and health as a first priority and loved being “Mom” in every way.
Carrie loved to travel with her family. Her favorite travel highlights were the several journeys she took with her family to the corners of the United Kingdom and Canada. The 4 members of the Croatt-Moore family chose to travel the United States, focusing their travels on visiting the national parks and monuments of the USA while seeking out regional experiences along the way. Carrie and the family enjoyed taking in the sights in many never-before seen and quirky places in the US, but they especially enjoyed their bonding time together as a family: cooking, baking, playing games, hiking, walking, bike riding, singing, or relaxing around a campfire.
Carrie was known for her light, energy, beauty, and laughter. She always approached the world with kindness and love, and gave every person the gifts of her smile and her joy. She was graceful, tactful, unassuming, and unselfish. She loved food and especially enjoyed cooking, grilling, and baking at home. She loved gathering with friends and relatives to socialize, and the quiet evenings spent with her immediate family.
