She was born on July 28, 1966, in Oneonta, NY, the daughter of Anne Marie (Brown) and Chester Lawrence DeCarr. Carla had a boundless love for animals, especially cats. She enjoyed cooking, watching movies, listening to music, and most of all crocheting gifts for her family and friends. She will always be remembered for being a kind and compassionate person. Her greatest achievement through the years was caring for other people. She showed this as an x-ray technician, a residential aide at ARC Otsego, and most recently caring for her longtime companion, Frank Duffy. Carla is also survived by her two sons, Matthew (Elle) Gunther and Chandler (Kaitlyn) Wolfe; her two grandchildren, Kurt and Anna; father, Chester; brother, Chester (Regina); sisters Cathleen (Mark) and Cheryl (Jim); several aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her daughter, Caela; mother, Anne; brothers Curtis and Chris; and sister Cindy.

A celebration of Carla’s life will be held at a date to be determined by the family.

At very difficult times like this, it is hard to find the words to express how you feel. Chandler, my heart goes out to you and you have my deepest condolences for the loss of your mother. Please always remember how much she loves you. That kind of love never dies. I also want to express my condolences to all of the family and loved ones in her life. We had a very dear friendship and I loved her like a sister. Even while I grieve the loss of her friendship, I have so many wonderful memories that make me smile. Cherish those memories. They can never be taken away. It's so surreal at this point. She had so much life left to live and I will always love you Carla and miss our friendship and will never forget you. Love and prayers to all ❤🙏
