Carolyn Dominguez Casillas “Carrie” of Phoenix, Arizona passed away October 27, 2023 at the age of 64.
She was born April 1, 1959 in Phoenix, Arizona to the late Ramon P. Casillas and Dora A. Dominguez. She was also preceded in death by her brothers Ray and Paul Casillas, brother-in-law Scott Hill, and nephew Javin Casillas.
Carrie is survived by her son Yamel Casillas (Amanda), daughters Olivia Casillas and Alicia Micheli (John), and her sister Patricia Hill. She is also survived by her five grandchildren: Agustin, Johnny, Roselyn, Paul, and Emberly.
Carrie was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. She was born on April Fools Day as the youngest of four children, which helped make her a natural prankster. She graduated from Maryvale High School in 1977 and immediately entered the workforce. She eventually went on to have three children, and became a surrogate mother to many friends along the way. She was a die-hard Arizona Cardinals fan and loved watching the games with pizza, wings, and good friends. Carrie created many close friendships throughout her life and cherished every one of them. Carrie worked almost 20 years in Medical Office Administration and adored her work family.
Carrie loved family gatherings, cooking, romantic comedies, celebrating the holidays, and being creative with her decorations and her Halloween costumes. Most of all she loved her children and grandchildren and never hesitated to show her love and pride to the world.
A visitation will begin at 10AM and a memorial service at 11:00AM on Friday, November 10, 2023 at Thompson Funeral.
