Pearson, Carrie J.
On April 30, 2018. Longtime resident of Annandale, VA, Carrie succumbed to cancer after a courageous battle and passed into eternal life.
She was born Carrie June Breckenridge on March 25, 1973 to Joyce and Howard Breckenridge of Ellwood City, Pennsylvania. The youngest of three girls, she attended Geneva College receiving her BS in Cardiac Technology. She relocated to Virginia, where she met and married Benjamin Thomas “Tommy” Pearson. She started her career as a CVT (Cardiovascular Technologist) with Inova Fairfax Hospital, but Carrie loved working with children and changed vocations serving as the curriculum coordinator for the Main Street Child Development Center in Fairfax before moving to Northern Virginia Pediatrics and Adolescent Center in Springfield/Fair Oaks.
Carrie was a very active member of Fairfax Community Church and Capital Baptist Church. While at Capital Baptist Carrie took on the extraordinary role of working with the youth. While under her tutelage the youth of Capital Baptist Church excelled at becoming better stewards of Christ’s love, they grew closer together as friends and grew as individuals. She inspired them to believe in themselves and one another. Throughout Carrie’s short life she always loved and encouraged the young children around her to grow and become what they were destined to become while on this earth. She inspired her loved ones with her strength of spirit, tremendous love of God, her never wavering positivity and her generously loving nature. She was greatly loved by all around her and will be greatly missed by everyone she touched.
