The Story

To know Carri was to love her. She was a beautiful woman with a strong and vivacious spirit. She loved life, her family, and her many friends. Carri was a fighter. She fought the grief of the loss of her mother at only six years of age, and she fought to completely free herself from an abusive first marriage.

When she was diagnosed with cancer over seven years ago, Carri took the news in stride and prepared for a fight. Having lost her mother way too early, Carri was acutely aware of how cancer could ravage a family, and she vowed to not go silently. Surpassing all predictions made by doctors over the years, she fought until the end. Through the years, Carri's love and strength were there for those she loved and she was an inspiration.

Carri's battle came to an end on March 16, 2014 while at home with her family. Carri is survived by her loving husband Michael, her beautiful children Cheyanne, Tyler, and Dominic, and her devoted parents Phillip and Janet.

Carri worked very hard over the last seven years to make every day with her family count. When she felt well, she planned trips to New York, California, and the Narnia in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. She made memories with her children and husband that will last a lifetime. As Michael told Jeni on her last trip to Michigan, "she trained me for this job". And we all know that perhaps the best decision Carri ever made was to marry "St. Michael" who is a wonderful father to their children.

Carri was only 37 years old when she was diagnosed and they (like so many young families) didn't have a big life insurance policy in place. That is really what prompted us to start this fundraiser to help ease some of the financial worries for the family.

Michael asked that Jeni and Jeff Deutsch administer this fund for the family as they take time to grieve this enourmous loss. Jeni is Carri's cousin from California. As one of Carri's closest relatives in age, Jeni and Carri became very close as children (more like sisters). This bond would last a lifetime. Jeni is so grateful to have had a few days with Carri in early March.

The family wishes to thank everyone who visited Carri and offered support in so many ways. The family and friends of Carri Carr DeMaggio are uniting to support her family as they prepare to celebrate Carri's life.
