Carla was born to Carl Houston Thomas and Edna McGregor Thomas on September 26, 1940, in Bryan, Tx. On Carla’s first day of school, she met a boy she would later marry, his name was George Carroll Jr. Carla made her first profession of faith in the Summer of 1957, in her best friend’s (Judy) closet in Jacksonville, Tx. Carla excelled in all levels of school, and she graduated from Stephen F. Austin High School in 1958 and then began college at Sam Houston State Teachers College, in Huntsville, Tx. The first degree that she obtained was a Bachelor of Science in 1961 and then went for her master’s degree in 1962. Carla moved to Orange, New Jersey to attend Smith College where she obtained another master’s degree in Social work. In 1966 Carla moved back to Texas and worked in Houston, Tx and Corpus Christi, Tx as a Juvenile Probation officer. She loved helping young people and being a ” career woman”, like her dad had been. In 1971 she married George Carroll Jr. and a few years later, their only daughter, Amanda was born. At that point Carla became a stay-at-home mom and helped George run his plumbing company. In 1982 Carla renewed her profession of faith while sitting in her office drinking coffee with (Erma) a dear friend. She loved her lord and savior and loved the USA. She also loved to cross stitch and loved all her kitty cats, too.
