Carla is the daughter of Jack and Ruther (Tooni) Lossiah of the Big Cove Community of Cherokee and was a member of the Straight Fork Baptist Church. She was loved by so many in the community, and although she was stricken by Cerebral Palsy she was a fighter and center of a loving family. She leaves behind many broken hearts. She will be missed.
Carla was preceded in death by a brother, John Russell Lossiah.

Charles Ray Ball will officiate and the pall bearers will be Terry Holt, Albert Martin Jr., Eddie Bird, Jerry Taylor, and friends among the Big Cove Free Labor and Tribal Construction groups.
