Carrie L Shuto

August 30, 1957 — July 31, 2023



Mother and healthcare worker Carrie Lynn Shuto had a love of people and animals that served as an inspiration to her family and friends.  She passed away quietly at her home after a courageous and lengthy battle with cancer on Monday July 31, 2023.

Carrie was born and raised in Lincoln Nebraska.  She graduated from Lincoln High School in Lincoln in 1975.  She went on to serve in the U. S. Air Force and trained as a medical technician. Her training led her to work in a mental health and rehabilitation center for youth and adults where she helped many children and adults. She was always a coach and teacher. Carrie also worked at the Humane Society as a veterinary assistant.

Carrie’s strength of character could be seen in the kindnesses she did for others. She would willingly give advice to solve any problem.  Carrie was a fixer and could repair anyone and anything.  If she didn’t have an answer, she would research to find it.  Carrie was a competent seamstress and knitter.  She made beautiful clothing and Afghans.  Carrie loved plants, rocks, jewelry, and crafts of all types. She loved horses and would ride whenever she had the opportunity.  Dogs were always a part of Carrie’s family.  She was especially fond of Koji, her current Shih Tzu pup.  If it were possible to measure one’s compassion by light shone to others, Carrie’s light would be eternal.

Carrie is survived by her husband Gale T. Shuto who shared a marriage of six years and lived in Cheyenne Wyoming. Gale's daughter, Olivia. Her son, James McConnell with partner Natasha and stepson Keegan reside in Manilla Iowa. She is survived by sisters Laurie (Husband Rich), Janette (Husband Gene), Stephanie (Husband Peter), Step-mother Judie Svoboda and stepsister Angela (Husband Bob), and many cousins.

She is preceded in death by daughter Tina Dishong, and Father Ward Svoboda, Mother, Mary Svoboda, Grandparents Lillian and Paul Jacobs, and Margaret and Edward Svoboda.
