At census time in 1920 Carrie Chipps was living with her parents, listed as a 30 year old widow rather than divorcee.
According to stories told by those who knew her, she was somewhat of a character. One person said every family needed an Aunt Carrie.
Niece, Dorisgene Van Gundy Webb, carries special memories of her ancestors:
"I've heard the phrase "This is my favorite aunt, or uncle." I always liked to hear it myself. But in my case each one had a special place in my heart!"
"Aunt Carrie was always wanting me to fix her hair. I burned her ears several times with the dryer but she never complained! Uncle Bill (Holston) was always drinking wine and eating soup yet he stayed thin!"
