Mrs. Carr was born in Ashville, North Carolina on August 17, 1902. She graduated from South Carolina State College. Later she took a correspondence course in Business Leadership from LaSalle Institute in Chicago. She came to Buffalo, from Chicago, with her husband, Judge John D. Carr in 1946. She immediately began working for the Robinson Women's and Children's Clothing store.

In 1964 the store honored Mrs. Carr for 17 years of dedicated service. She was given a $30 Bond, a gold wrist watch, three gold service pens and a gold locket. She was lauded for her customer service and consistent service to the store. Previously, she'd worked at Michelson Furniture and Clothing Store.

Mrs. Carr was a big supporter of her husband and served as the secretary and treasurer of the Buffalo Civil Rights League. Like her husband, she was also a journalist and worked for the Frontier Syndicate News Bureau.
