Carrie Lisa LaZarre, 51, passed away on October 30, 2017 at Hospicare in Ithaca, New York after surviving and thriving with a diagnosis of cancer for over 10 years. She was born on May 4, 1966 in Santa Monica, California of Adam Maurice and Jet MacDonald LaZarre.  Carrie grew up primarily in Brockport, New York, and graduated from Brockport High School.

Carrie is survived by her sister, Julie (Tony) LaZarre-Miller, her brother Adam (Angie) LaZarre, and the lovely Rosie and Norman, her dog and cat (who both have wonderful new homes).

Carrie lived her life with passion - from friendships and family to teaching, travel, dancing, acting, and civic engagement, she had a strength of spirit and purpose admired by all who knew her.  She inspired us, is loved dearly, and will be remembered often and fondly.
