Carla was never afraid to get her hands dirty. She spent many years working on various landscape projects around Danville and enjoyed doing gardening around her home. Not one to turn down a challenge, she also stepped right up when it came time to help her son William process a deer. She loved decorating the walls of her home with puzzles she had diligently worked on along with her paintings and artwork. Above all, Carla enjoyed spending time with those she loved the most.
