Dr. Carrie Ann Calloway
Dr. Carrie Ann Calloway, born February 5, 1978, passed away peacefully at her home in Morgantown, WV on September 16, 2021 after a long and courageous battle with cancer. She was preceded in death by her father, Roger Calloway of Oceana, WV, maternal grandparents Macy and Willy Grimmett of Cyclone, WV, and paternal grandparents Bill and Alma Calloway of Raleigh County, WV.
Dr. Calloway received her bachelors, masters, and doctoral degrees from West Virginia University, where she was formerly employed by the WVU School of Medicine as Director of Curriculum and Evaluation. For the past five years, she was employed at Alderson Broaddus University as the Director of Curriculum and Assessment, as well as Associate Professor of Physician Assistant Studies. She loved working at ABU and was passionate about and dedicated to her work there, loved her coworkers and students, and continued to work until the very end.
Carrie lived with her wife and best friend of 30 years, Heather Stickler, in Morgantown, WV. They built a beautiful home and life filled with love and happiness. Together, they enjoyed festive occasions and holiday traditions. She enjoyed puzzles, relaxing in the garden, and loved spending time with her English springer spaniels and cats. She loved arts and crafts, fine dining and the culinary arts, solving mysteries, and playing games. She had a deep appreciation for nature, enjoyed bird watching, and loved searching for native ephemeral wildflowers. She loved to travel and especially loved singing along to The Beatles during long road trips with Heather.
Dr. Calloway is survived by her wife, Heather Stickler, mother Jane Jasper and husband Ladd of Martinsburg,WV, sister Cristi Calloway-Lambert and husband Steve of Falling Water, WV, and brother William Calloway and wife Annie, and nephew Ethan, of Leesburg, VA.
Carrie was the definition of strength and genuity and will be greatly and forever missed by all who knew her. She was kind,compassionate, generous, and caring; a provider, a leader, and fiercely independent. Carrie remained stoic until the end--the epitome of grace.
Heather would like to thank Dr. Miklos Auber, Crystal Heise, and all the wonderful nurses at Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center for their positivity, comfort and care throughout the years. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the AmericanCancerSociety at https://donate3.cancer.org/
