Alice May Carr, 78 passed away peacefully in her home on July 21st, 2020. Alice was born on March 17th, 1942 in Woodstock, Illinois. She married her husband, Dr. Phillip Carr on May 26, 1963 so they were married 57 years. She raised three children, Catherine, Bill and Dru. She was a wonderful homemaker, an avid quilter and a talented artist. For 10 years, she owned the Pickwick Place, an antique and unique store in Springfield, MO with 3 of her dear friends.
She lived her life always spreading kindness, warmth and love. She brought out the creativity and individuality of everyone she met. Her greatest joy in life was spending time with her children and 10 grandchildren. Each of them felt uniquely seen and known by her, as she always took the time to listen and discover the details of the people she loved. She cheered each of them on in their individual endeavors. Her stories and jokes could make a room roar with laughter, and her smile radiated light. She will be dearly missed and her memory will be cherished by those that knew her.
Alice was preceded in death by her parents, Lewis and Helen Winegarner, and her brother and sister, Neal Winegarner and Linda Worth. She is survived by her husband, Dr. Phillip Carr, her children, Catherine Kuhls, Bill Carr and Dru Carr, and daughters-in-law, Andee Carr and Beth Hahn. She also will be greatly missed by her grandchildren, Allistair, Aidan and Avery Kuhls, Taylor Arri, Lauren Patel, Emma, Cooper, and Derebe Carr, Gus and Fiona Carr.
