Two tiny Specks grew to become Carrie's ultimate reason for living. Her first-born Maria Antoinette and a year, one month and eight days later, Ava Marlina was born. They were her blood, her flesh, her bones, and her two girls. On October 2, 1971, Carrie married Alvin Emanuel Kirton her soul mate. To this union no children were born but they shared their love together caring and giving to a large extended family on both sides. Alvin preceded her in death.
Carrie had a special love for children, so her decision to work for the Oakland Public Schools was an excellent choice. Her career in teaching began with Horace Mann Elementary School. She had a passion for children and that passion led to instilling positive, social and educational values. Her commitment to children continued even after her professional career. She worked tirelessly with her children and grandchildren instilling those same qualities and values.
Carrie leaves to cherish her memory two daughters Maria Antoinette Jackson of San Pablo, CA and Ava Marlina Turner of Oakland, CA, her companion of many years Harline Masters (Tungie) of Richmond, CA, one son-in-law Patrick Jackson of San Pablo, CA.
