Obituary for CARRIE V. SPRIGGS
Carrie Victoria Spriggs was born on December 22, 1947 to Josephine Ennis Burley and the late Calvert W. Burley.She departed this life on December 7, 2009 at Calvert Memorial Hospital, after a brief illness.
Carrie received her education in the Anne Arundel County Public School System. She was a 1965 graduate of Wiley H. Bates High School.
In the start of her career, she was employed by the Anne Arundel County Public Schools, U.S. Naval Academy and The Department of Agriculture. Later, she was employed with the Census Bureau as a Human Resource Assistant. She retired in January of 2004 after 38 years of Federal service.
Carrie was united in Holy Matrimony to Melvin E. Spriggs, whom she was dearly in love with for over 40 years. From this union, one son, Roland Spriggs was born.
Carrie was a faithful, Saved and Holy Ghost filled member of Bethel Way of the Cross Church. She served on the Usher Board until her health began to fail. Carrie has been an active member of Bethel for over 30 years. She lived a life that exemplified a True Christian Woman!
Carrie loved to spend quality time with her mother; visiting and playing dominoes with her uncle; conversing daily with loved ones and traveling far and near with her family. She enjoyed planting flowers in the garden, baking, sewing, shopping and taking daily walks with Texas. She looked forward to her Friday evening dinners with Melvin and sitting outside enjoying nature. You could often find Carrie reading her Bible and listening to various gospel artists. She was an avid Shirley Caesar fan and people often say she reminded them of Shirley.
Carrie was a kind, loving, and caring person. She was humble and quiet but her warmth and passion for life was like a beacon of light seen for miles ahead. She treasured each day that God allowed her to see and thanked Him for allowing her to see another day. She credited God for every blessing she received in life and she unselfishly bestowed her blessings to her family and friends.
Carrie was a devoted Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Daughter, Sister, Aunt, Niece and Friend. She was always available to do whatever was asked of her at any given time and took pleasure in helping others. Her ability to bring joy to those around her with her beautiful smile, vibrant laughter, and personality will surely be missed by those who knew and loved her.
Carrie leaves to cherish her precious memories, her husband, Melvin, 5 Sons, Melvin, Jr. (Angela), Ricey, David (Tangy), Dexter, and Brian Spriggs, daughter, Zoe Rawlings and 11 grandchildren. In addition to her husband and children, surviving is her Mother, Josephine A. Ennis Burley, Brother, Calvert Burley, Sister, Sarah A. Burley, Uncle, William Ennis, Mother-in-law, Dorothy Spriggs, 4 Brothers-in-law/6 Sisters-in-law, Benjamin (Ozelius), Sherman (Helen), Morris (Helen), Joseph (Thelma) and Laura Spriggs, and Susie (Charles) Duppins and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.She will surely be missed by her canine "child", Texas.
Carrie was preceded in death by her son, Roland, sisters, Agnes Pindell, Mary Dandridge, Hettie Bell, and brother, George Burley.
