Carlynn Nicole Beatty was born on July 22, 2000 to Robert & Sue Beatty. She was the baby of the family, although you would not know it by the way she took charge of her two older brothers, Rick and Michael. She considered herself a Texan, despite being born in New York until moving to Frisco at age 3. She graduated from Centennial High School in 2018 and went on to attend Texas A&M in College Station where she had begun her Sophomore year studying Pre-Veterinary Science.

Carly’s greatest passion was animals. She loved all creatures….well, except BUGS! She was terrified by them and would run screaming anytime someone mentioned the word. She once ran in front of a truck because a bee was chasing her!

She was full of compassion not only for animals, but people as well. She was loving, inclusive, moral, reliable, quirky, and happy. Her favorite place to be was on the couch in her PJs with her dog, Honey, watching a movie with her family. It was likely a romance, Scooby Doo, Marvel, Harry Potter (of which she could recite by heart), or anything with Johnny Depp. Carly enjoyed learning. She loved to read and write. She was an excellent writer and artist. But mostly, she loved her family and friends fiercely. Her smile lit up every room she walked into.

Carly loved autumn. She was delighted during the season of pumpkins, Fall colors and fresh air. Maybe that is why Fall hasn’t arrived here in Texas yet. Carly isn’t here to enjoy it!

She enjoyed her involvement in youth group at Centennial Church, her sorority Kappa Delta, and being a staff member for the Freshman Leadership Organization (“FLOC”) at A&M. She loved being an Aggie and felt that it was exactly where she belonged.

She is survived by her parents, Rob and Sue Beatty, brothers Rick and Michael, and dogs Honey and Soshi of Frisco, Texas. She truly lit up their lives every day. She was their “Sunshine” as they often called her. She brightened their days here on earth and is now shining that light in Heaven. She will be missed beyond measure but will continue to be loved through time and all eternity.

I taught both Michael and Carly 8th grade US History at Wester. Michael was one of “my boys” and he and Tripp Owen were in the same class. I adored them both. The next year along comes Carly and when I mentioned I had Michael she just smiled. You could tell it was a “don’t judge me based on my big brother” smile!! Lol. She quickly became one of my favorite students as she was so hard working, kind to others and always had a smile on her face. She would come back and visit me and that always made my day. She was a rare light in this world and will truly be missed. My prayers go out to all of you, no words will bring her back but I hope everyone’s thoughts and prayers bring you comfort.

The beautiful life of Carly will live on forever through the thread of ways she impacted this world. She will be remembered for the kindness of her heart, her infectious smile, and the ways she showed love and compassion to those around her. It was intriguing to witness first hand her deep love and appreciation for animals, even when she was a little girl.

I’ll cherish the playful memories our children shared and fondly appreciate the friendship bond that tied our families together.

May God comfort you all in the void and brokenness and grant you grace and strength for each day. And may the precious memories of Carly sustain you until you are one day together again.

Our deepest sympathy to Rob, Sue, Rick and Michael. We have many memories with you when you lived in New York. We were blessed with friendship and it was a joy to have all of you in our lives. One memory that we have of Carly was when Rob & Shannon took Carly who was 2 and our daughter Laura who was 3 at the time to swimming lessons at the YMCA. Carly was full of adventure and pure happiness as they sang "I'm a Little Teapot" while learning to love the water. Although we didn't know Carly in recent years, we are sure that she was an extension of the sheer love that the family showed to all. Her life will live on through the strength and compassion of each one of you. Phil. 4:13

My best memories with Carly are when we were a “group of 5” (with Morgan W., Allie C., and Tabitha N. ) We did everything together, and we each planned each others’ birthdays (which were usually over the top, but so fun.) Carly and I hardly talked before high school, but she was so fun and sweet and outgoing, and her house was the best place to hang out and stay up all night watching movies. She always made me laugh and just made everyone feel like they are welcome. I know me and the other girls will miss her so much, but I love and cherish the memories we did get with her.

It was an honor to serve as Carly’s middle school principal and be involved in her life in a small way. I remember her as a kind and bright girl, with a very loving and supportive family. Until we meet again.

As God would have it, I came upon this photo last week in a box I was unpacking. It reminded me of Carly's sweet, sweet, spirit, her easy going manner, and so many times she made me smile or chuckle throughout the years in Curtsinger as her girl scout leader.

While I hadn't seen Carly since middle school when Kaitlyn moved to a different high school, I did run into her this past summer. I was happy to see her bright smile as she and Mia D. told me they were carrying home a stray cat to help it out. It put a smile on my face knowing her BIG heart was still set on helping out every animal with which she crossed paths.

I will always carry a warm spot for Carly in my heart for always staying a caring, loyal friend to my daughter during the tough times that growing up can bring. Sue, you and your husband did such a great job fostering her loving heart and spirit.

May God carry you in the times ahead when you don't feel you can yourself, give you strength and courage to face this chapter of life, and continue to have so many, many beautiful memories wash over you for the years to come.

FLOC Winter Retreat - We decided to all go for a "hike" around the pond in the backyard, and Sophia had rolled her ankle shortly before. So when we headed back up the hill Carly offered a piggyback ride to Sophia.

I am a KD from TAMU (1967) and our chapter and alumni prayed for Carly because she was one of us. From looking at her pictures she embodied the spirit of KD - you can tell she was kind, compassionate and had a friendly smile. It showed. She is beautiful and will always be with you. I’m so sorry for this tragedy and your loss. It is the most difficult pain to endure to lose a child - please take comfort in the many who continue to pray for you and share your grief.
