Carrie Lynn Greer

Carrie Lynn Greer, 35, of Fredericktown, MO, formerly of Piedmont, MO, and Phoenix, AZ, passed away Thursday, September 8, 2022, near Annapolis, MO.

Carrie was born October 16, 1986, to parents Vernon and Anita (Cameron) Greer in Phoenix, AZ. Carrie lived her life in service to others; whether it be through her church at Meadow Heights in Fredericktown or her job as an investigative supervisor with the Missouri Children’s Division 42nd circuit. She truly cared for others and had a tremendous heart. She achieved great success in the academic world. Carrie graduated from Clearwater High School in 2005 and from Southeast Missouri State University with three bachelor’s degrees in criminal justice, sociology, and psychology.  She recently received her Master of Social Work and was scheduled to walk at Arizona State University commencement in December. Carrie had been active in Tri Sigma sorority and a member of Phi Alpha, an honors society for social workers. After SEMO, she moved to Texas to be nearer to her brothers and became employed at Denton County Mental Health and Suicide Prevention where she served for a few years. Even though she loved Texas, she missed her sister and father in Missouri. Carrie considered herself a gypsy soul, that was forever in search of her next adventure. She considered her heart home Phoenix, AZ. She was truly a desert child. Carrie’s hobbies included going to concerts, Broadway musicals, fishing, hunting, kayaking, camping, playing D&D, float trips, traveling, and spending time with family and friends. She was a fan of the Atlanta Braves and Arizona Sun Devils. It was often said that she was overly obsessed with gnomes and nutcrackers. Every year Carrie organized a gift donation during the Christmas season for the foster children of the 42nd circuit, ensuring each child had a present to open at Christmas.

Carrie is survived by her father, Vernon Greer, of Piedmont, MO; sister: Tarina Greer of Springfield, MO; brothers: Vernon “Buddy” Greer and wife Serena of Lewisville, TX, Douglas Greer and wife Michelle of Little Elm, TX; nieces and nephews: Cameron MacGregor, DeeAnna and Shelby Greer, Selena Larsen, Chloe Greer and JoAnn Greer; great nieces and nephews: Hagen Russel J. Galart, Allison Grace Galart, Quinn Raeleigh Galart and Lars Larsen III; God babies: Dakota Bowers and Alexander Bowers; and last but not least her fur baby Jezzebelle, which was her “Ride or Die.”

Carrie was preceded in death by her mother Anita Greer; two sisters: Amanda Greer and Doris Greer.

She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
