Carla Inzina

Carla Inzina, age 59, passed away peacefully at her home on Friday, March 5, 2021, after a courageous battle with cancer. She was born on October 25, 1961, in Monroe, to Carl John Inzina, Jr. and Mary Frances “Doll” Savana Inzina White.

She was a 1979 graduate of Wossman High School. Carla was a Journeyman Carpenter by trade and spent several years working for the International Paper Mill in Bastrop. After leaving the Bastrop area, she moved to Lake Saint John where she completed numerous projects for friends and acquaintances.

Carla enjoyed life and lived it to the fullest. She excelled at many things from drag racing, playing cards and shooting pool. Had her true athletic abilities been discovered and developed, she could have become an accomplished athlete.

Many who knew Carla were aware of the great losses she had experienced within her family – preceded in death by her mom, dad, and sister, Terri Inzina – yet she stood strong. Carla was tough and told it like it was, but there was a tender heart underneath her tough exterior.

Carla’s eyes lit up when she was asked about wrestling and was a serious fan of her favorite, Charlotte Flair. She loved being outdoors, raising a garden and fishing on the lake.

Left to cherish her memory is her favorite uncle Harold Loyd Willis, aunt Patricia Savana, many cousins and friends and her canine companion, Maxi, who was always by her side. Heartfelt thanks are expressed to those who provided care for Carla during her illness including the special care provided by cousin Janice Willis Young and husband Dale, long-time companion Dee Dee, and friends Dianna Pollard and Chris.

Carla will be greatly missed, but may we all find comfort in knowing that she has no more sorrow or pain and has been reunited with her mom, dad and sister, Terri.

Graveside services will be held at 4 p.m. Thursday, March 11, at the Riverview Cemetery in Monroe, under the direction of Mulhearn Funeral Homes.
