Carmen graduated from Lower Richland High School in 1992, where she married the love of her life for 28 years, Tyrone Dwight (Boobas). He was a devoted caretaker that never left her side.
Carmen entered the workforce during high school serving at Rush’s Restaurant followed by numerous occupations. Her final employment was at the Social Security office until her health declined.
