April 26, 1914~March 29, 2011

Carrie C. Lail, 96, of Vancouver, WA, passed away on March 29, 2011, from congestive heart failure. She was born in Catawba County, NC on April 26, 1914 to Andrew and Hattie Correll.

Carrie married Jonas Lail in 1935 and they slowly worked their way across the country to Yakima, WA. In 1955, Carrie moved to Vancouver, WA with her husband, Jonas, and her three sons, Billy, Donald and Jack, where she resided until her death.

Carrie is survived by her sister, Ethel Dean (91); and brother, Lewis Correll (86); sons, Billy Lail (wife Karen) and Donald Lail (wife Diana); nine grandchildren; fourteen great-grandchildren; and nine great-great-grandchildren.

Carrie enjoyed bowling on a Vancouver women's league, planting or tending to her flowers and feeding the birds behind her house. But, if you were to ask her what her greatest enjoyment and fulfillment in life was, she would say "My Family" with a smile and a twinkle in her eye.

A memorial service to honor Carrie C. Lail will be held Friday, April 1, 2011 at 7:00 p.m., Evergreen Memorial Gardens, 1101 NE 112th Ave., Vancouver, WA 98684. In addition to the memorial service, an intimate family graveside service at Evergreen Memorial Gardens will be held on April 4, 2011 at 3:00 p.m. for the lowering of the casket.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the (, in memory of Carrie C. Lail for the continued fight against cancer.
