Courtney Marie Carroll
October 4, 1985 – November 5, 2018
Courtney Marie Carroll, age 33, of Beech Grove, Indiana passed away on Monday November 5, 2018. Courtney was born October 4, 1985 in Houston, Texas to Jacqueline Carroll and Joseph Michael Carroll.
Courtney throughout her life understood that all blessings were great. Life never held back Courtney as she accomplished so many things. Courtney and her family were proud of her Bachelors Degree in fashion design, proud of her multiple accomplishments including meeting President Bush, Texas Governor Great Abbot, a former education secretary, and 2 cardinals. When Courtney wasn't busy with all of those things, she would be busy as a prayer warrior and a volunteer for St. Vincent de Paul, Pro-life, and the Gabriel Project.
Courtney once wrote "I still can't describe exactly what a perfect society is to me. In my perfect society even unsophisticated thought is appreciated. Perhaps my society is a place of innocence. Listening is considered a valued art and gentle whispers are heard more frequently than angry shouts. My perfect society might be a place of courteous communication. I have been taught that God helps those who help themselves and my perfect citizens also show it is more blessed to give than to receive. In my perfect society one may not forget but is always willing to forgive. In my perfect society you don't just accept, you are truly thankful for what you have. You don't take a quick look, you see beyond the obvious. Creative thinkers are active problem solvers. The people don't need to live on easy street. They concentrate on making their houses a real home. My perfect society is about "we" instead of "me". It is more about do than don't. It is more about trying than lying. It is about taking more chances than not taking any at all. It is about taking steps big or small down the road of life together."
Courtney is survived by; mother Jacqueline Carroll; brother Joseph Jude (Kira) Carroll and brother John Michael Carroll; aunt Marie (Archie) Bundy, aunt Darla Godby, aunt Jeanine Petree, aunt Teresa Robertson, aunt Maura Carroll, aunt Jerylann Carroll, aunt Meg Marie Carroll, aunt Barbara Carroll, aunt Regina Carroll, aunt Colleen Carroll, uncle Craig (Janis) Petree, uncle Jeff Petree, uncle Doug (Mari) Petree, uncle Michael (Carol) Carroll, uncle Kevin (Aileen) Carroll, uncle Martin (Sheila) Carroll, niece Isis Carroll, nephew Joseph Anthony Carroll, nephew Liam Carroll and nephew Raphael Carroll.

Life is but a stopping place,
A pause in what's to be,
A resting place along the road,
to sweet eternity.
We all have different journeys,
Different paths along the way,
We all were meant to learn some things,
but never meant to stay...
Our destination is a place,
Far greater than we know.
For some the journey's quicker,
For some the journey's slow.
And when the journey finally ends,
We'll claim a great reward,
And find an everlasting peace,
Together with our Lord.
Rest gently Courtney....
