Armenia RPCV Carrie Jane Dulin dies in Uzbekistan

Carrie Jane Dulin

Carrie Jane Dulin, 28, of Doylestown, Ohio, died suddenly on Aug. 5, 2003, while visiting a friend in Uzbekistan.

Carrie was a 1993 graduate of Chippewa High School, where she graduated with honors. In 1997, Carrie graduated from Bowling Green University with a major in chemistry and minor in psychology. After graduating from Bowling Green, Carrie joined the Peace Corps, where she served in Armenia teaching English and developing a local library.

Carrie grew very fond of the people of Armenia and, after returning to the United States from her two years in the Peace Corps, she returned to Armenia working for World Vision, the largest Christian aid organization in the world. With World Vision, Carrie worked as the agricultural project manager in Sisian, Armenia.

Carrie was preparing to begin a whole new adventure with Medicines sans Frontiers (Doctors without Borders). She was days away from starting an assignment as a project manager in Nigeria at a malaria clinic for pregnant women and children under 6. Carrie was also enrolled in a master's program in world health in Berlin, Germany.

Carrie was a giving and compassionate person, who spent her entirely too-short life caring for her fellow man. She lived her life proving that one person can make a difference. She will always be Daddy's girl.

She was preceded in death by great-grandmother, Almeda Burkett; grandparents, Bill and Ruth Clark; and Aunt, Donna Burkett. Carrie leaves behind loving parents, Patsy and Carl Dulin of Doylestown; brother, Ben (Kristie) of Doylestown; grandparents, Margaret and Robert Burkett of Mogadore; aunts and uncles, Carolyn and Dick Grable of Doylestown, Denise and Jim Dies of Doylestown, Cathy and Rick Warchal of Powell, John Burkett of Akron; and a host of cousins and very special friends throughout the world.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be given to the Doylestown United Methodist Church. Any funds received will be used to continue Carrie's ministries in world missions. Memorial services will be Monday, Aug. 11, at 7 p.m., at Doylestown United Methodist Church, with Rev. James Humphrey and Dr. David Tennant officiating. (Zak-Monbarren, 330-658-2211.)
