A mother, wife, and friend, Carrie Kaoui, tragically passed away on June 4, 2022 in a
fatal car accident.
Carrie was born in Mobile, Alabama and graduated from Davidson High School in 1985.
In 1994, she welcomed her first child, James Tyler Cunningham. Carrie was swept off
her feet by her husband, Michael René Kaoui, in 1999. The two were married in 2005
and welcomed their "Baby Girl", Madison Brooke Kaoui, in 2007.
Fiercely loyal, Carrie loved her family with an intensity that is hard to find. She was the
protector and defender of those she loved, an assurance that will be missed forever. To
know her was to have her in your corner. Her vivacious personality filled every room
with sparkling energy, love, and light.
If Carrie could not be at the beach she was usually found at home, filling it with greenery
and life, and tending to her numerous plants and garden. Always having boundless
energy, she loved being active through working on her mind and body at the gym.
Loving the thrill of the hunt, she filled her closet with amazing finds that were the envy of
many and made her the fashion icon she was. She loved entertaining her family and
friends in her home by cooking up something delicious for the Alabama or Saints game.
She also loved just being by their pool, surrounded by a multitude of friends. Her
passion for love and life was incomparable.
Carrie was predeceased by her father, Jerry Stephen Spooner and her mother, Nancy
Daughdrill Anderson. She left behind her husband, Michael René Kaoui; children:
James Tyler Cunningham and Madison Brooke Kaoui; second mother, Kay Ott Spooner;
sisters: Jarah Spooner Bartlett, Jahaza Spooner Duncan, and Nikkie Chmielewski;
brother, Jeremiah Ott Spooner; daughter-in-law and love: Destiny Todd Cunningham, as
well as countless other dear friends and family.
