Carrie Mae Session

Sister Carrie Mae Session was born on September 5, 1945 in Josephine, Texas. She is the second oldest sibling and the eldest sister out of ten children. She has four sisters and five brothers. She was born into a family with loving and Godly parents, Bishop Lawrence and Missionary Alma O. Clark.
They have both gone home to be with the Lord. Both of her parents were born, raised and worked in the East and West Texas areas.
In June, 1999, Carrie became a widow after the passing of her loving husband, Bishop Homer Lee Session. After the loss of
her husband it seemed like the struggles and snares of the enemy and life happenings poured out like rain. However, she continued to give God the praise and see his miracles and blessings. She encouraged everyone she met. She did not give up easily or should I say she never gave up at all! Her doctors were baffled at her amazing energy, confidence,determination and most of all her faith in God.
Over their lifetime, her parents traveled throughTexas,California, Michigan, Arizona and other cities and states to work and care for their family. They were hard workers and taught their children to work hard, do their best, be honest and always trust the Lord.
After many years, her parents moved from Texas to Arizona where they continued to work and raise their family and serve God. In Arizona, the family lived, worked and went to church under the leadership of Sister Lula Anderson for many years.
Later, Carrie graduated from High School in Casa Grande Arizona and continued to work in the community. Sometime after, the entire family moved to the State of Oregon to work as migrate workers and farm crops. Being a preacher’s kid was not always easy but Carrie always enjoyed being the center of attention as much as she loved to care for and pamper others. She was alert, smart and always ready to do her part. She knew how to dress and carry herself with elegance and style.
She was always in church. She and her siblings attended church services Saturday mornings, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday nights. She sang with her sisters in a choir called “Hearts of Joy” as one of the lead vocalists. She and her sisters assisted their Father, Bishop Lawrence Clark by singing and worshipping in jails and prisons. Being the second oldest child; Sister Carrie had many fond memories and experiences with helping her parents, ranging from the care of her younger siblings and assisting with day to day chores of cooking and cleaning for the entire family. She was a great cook and baker. She greatly pleased her mother one year by baking her favorite “Strawberry” cobbler almost daily over one winter season.
Sister Carrie was a beautiful Christian woman. She accepted Christ as her personal savior at a very young age and continued to serve him until the day God called her home. She was a very kind, friendly, loving, intelligent and sophisticated woman with a "Heart of Gold”. She was a sharp dresser and knew how to strut her stuff. She had great passion and a warm heart for hospitality. She was a true “Woman of Faith” and a strong believer in God and what He can do for you! She also had many great skills and abilities. During her professional career, she worked in the health and medical field at the University of Tyler,Texas.
She served as a loving caregiver and also an Avon Representative. She enjoyed serving and helping others. She also provided great industrial services to those who needed her. She recently received a certificate for giving excellent service to her senior clients. During her career, she demonstrated great excellence and professionalism while employed at Prudential Insurance Company and also as a drivers examiner for the Department of Motor Vehicle as well as in her other careers. I understand that she was one of the best. Sister Carrie loved people and enjoyed being with and around her family and friends.
She had a great passion and concern for others and was willing to go out of her way to help others in any way that she could. However, she was wise and would not allow people to take her kindness for a weakness! She was very loving, encouraging, and thoughtful. She often demonstrated her love by calling, texting or just sending a letter, card or note which sometimes included a little “joke”! She loved to laugh and smile as it just came naturally. She also had a great sense of humor and was never at a loss for words. She enjoyed life and always had fun phrases or words that made you laugh. She also read funny poems or jokes that always had you laughing and soon forgetting about your troubles. She was an amazing person who managed her time and schedule to allow herself time to take care of her body, go to work, help others and cook home cooked meals, etc. She enjoyed giving to others. When she gave to others, she gave items which would fit the person. It gave her great joy to be a blessing by giving gifts that were meaningful to the individual. Carrie was a very dedicated and active member of her congregation at Lindsey Street Pentecostal Church. She held many positions such as Missionary, Sabbath School Teacher, Pastor’s Aide, and as a Program planner, Carrie organized many appreciation services and other church special events. She was known and loved as a great Mistress of ceremonies. Her wonderful sense of wit and humor, always won over the crowd
Sister Carrie was also the historian for the Lawrence Clark family. This position is one that she performed well and took great pride in. She wrote everything down and I mean everything! Thank God she knew shorthand. She also kept a journal and notes of happenings & events in her life including the dates and time in which they occurred. This took time, discipline and patience, all of which she had. For example, when she was in a hospital or doctor’s office, she wrote everything down including the type of medication and right down to the hour, minutes and sometimes the seconds. Everywhere she went she made a great impression and people loved and adored her and she will be greatly missed.
