Carrie Vanessa Rush, 39, of Hartselle, who was the victim of a fatal hit-and-run accident July 24, was a member of the Aldersgate Sunday school class at Hartselle First United Methodist Church. She accepted the Lord as her savior Nov. 25, 2005.
Following Hurricane Katrina, Rush volunteered to travel to Mississippi and, according to her church family, worked hard installing tile in the kitchen for a family whose home and been destroyed. Relating to their hardship, the class recalled how Rush also took time to comfort the hurricane victims she met.
Her Aldersgate classmates also remember how Rush found a broken and tattered doll, which she told them reminder her of her own life and encouraged her to make life better for her children.
Rush’s Aldersgate classmates said she served the church by baking on several occasions, including bringing a special Christmas treat to each member of the church’s quartet last year.
The class said Rush, who was attending the church’s study group on “Bringing Up Boys” by Dr. James Dobson, rarely missed the chance to spend Wednesday night at FUMC with her two children and share dinner and fellowship with her church family.
Rush’s Aldersgate classmates had this to say regarding her passing:
