"Carrie Belle Morris Herd, 98, returned to the Lord and passed in her home in Louisville on Feb 27, 2024. She was cared for by her children and family. She was preceded in death by her husband of 66 years, Charles F. Herd, parents Florence and Walter Morris, and one sister, Betty Morris McWhorter. Born in Knoxville, TN, on September 6, 1925, Carrie Belle lived a full and blessed life. She attended the University of Tennessee in Knoxville during WWII. There, as a Physical Education major she learned to fly airplanes for the Civil Air Patrol when they were testing the idea whether women could even fly planes using instruments only (IFR). She earned her wings flying IFR; as a young pilot and college student, Carrie Belle flew solo missions between Knoxville and Oak Ridge. On these missions, she was tasked to keep any eye out for German aircraft (unbeknownst to her, Oak Ridge was developing the Atomic Bomb, later to be dropped on Japan.) In addition to flying recon, she was a proud and active member of Delta Delta Delta sorority, along with her two sisters and eventually her daughter, daughter-in-law, grand daughter and several nieces. After graduating from UT as a UT “Torchbearer”, Carrie Belle attended graduate school and met her soul-mate, recently returned from the war, Charles Felix Herd, while they both studied at the University of Iowa. After one year of teaching at the University of Alabama, they began their married life together in Knoxville, where he became the CEO of the Knoxville Chamber of Commerce and she taught Physical Education at the University of Tennessee. Later in life, Carrie Belle could always be counted on to give a great lesson to her children or neighborhood kids on the rules and skills required for just about any sport, from volleyball to archery to canoeing to square-dancing. Carrie Belle taught hundreds if not thousands of people to swim. She was the first woman on the board of directors for the Knoxville Red Cross. She played tennis at the Louisville Boat Club well into her 80’s. She was a true renaissance lady. In 1966, the Herds, along with their three young children, moved to Louisville when he was selected to be the CEO of the Louisville Chamber of Commerce (precursor to Greater Louisville, Inc). Carrie Belle continued as a full-time mother, chauffeur, Scout leader, PTA leader, Sunday School \u0026amp; Vacation Bible School teacher, organizer of adventures and antique aficionado. Active throughout her life in global and local community service, Carrie Belle and Charles served as volunteers for the International Executive Service Corps in Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Kenya, Gambia, and Ecuador. They often visited their family all over the United States. Carrie Belle enjoyed membership in the Louisville Boat Club, Louisville Woman’s Club, and the Pendennis Club, and she was a very passionate member at Westport Road Church of Christ. She was an avid tennis player, swimmer, crafter, printmaker of 25 years of Christmas cards, gardener and “antiquer” for most of her life, as well as a proud Tennessean; Go Vols! Carrie Belle is survived by her sister, Ann Morris Sherbakoff, her daughter Mary Herd Jackson (Kevin) of Louisville, her sons Charles F. Herd, Jr (Jenny), an attorney in Houston, TX, and Colonel Walter Morris Herd (Ann) of Simpsonville KY, as well as seven grandchildren, four (so far) great grandchildren and a host of nieces and nephews. Listen to her story on NPR’s Store Corps Visitation will be at Pearson’s, 149 Breckenridge Lane, Friday, March 15 from 4-7 PM.
