Loved by all, Carrie Fay Mast, age 100, of Mountain City, TN, left her residence and was reunited in heaven with family and friends on April 10, 2015. She was a native of Johnson County. She was a member of Hammons Chapel Christian Church and faithfully attended Nelson Chapel Baptist Church for most of her life prior to her illness. She was preceded in death by her husband, Ferd Mast; her mother, Hilda Johnson; a sister, Ruth Dunn, and two brothers: Glenn Johnson and Fred Dunn. Survivors include three daughters: Thelma Hammons and husband, Paul, Lois Atwood and husband, Earl, of Mountain City, TN and Gay Triplett of Johnson City, TN; three sons: Carl Mast and wife Phyllis, Earl Mast and wife Arzella, and Ray Mast all of Mountain City, TN.

She enjoyed life to the fullest and always looked forward to taking trips, eating out at restaurants, and attending family meals and celebrations. She loved having company and cooking for family and friends. Her big Sunday morning breakfasts were a treat which included biscuits with hot blackberry jam and chocolate gravy.
She loved her family and friends and always had kind words for all. The way she lived her life inspired everyone to be a better person. Throughout her life she found pleasure in working hard which included: babysitting, farming, gardening, canning, picking beans, making pine ropes, and working in restaurants.
