Carrie Evers-Whitaker passed away peacefully on September 14, 2019 after a long battle with cancer. She is survived by her loving husband, Asa Whitaker of Lebanon, New Jersey, her sons, Lucas Nigro and his wife Desirae, Wayne Nilsen and his wife Monique, a stepson, Asa Z. Whitaker, four grandchildren: Sebastian, Nathaniel, Heidi, and Donnie, her mother Jeanne Evers, her sister Julie Evers, her brother Mark Evers, and nephew Travis Givler. She was predeceased by her husband Donald Messing.

Carrie had a long career as a professional dancer. She started with lessons from her mother and at a young age became a Radio City Music Hall Rockette, following in her mom’s footsteps. After that, she began teaching dancing for many, many years, both in the Poconos and elsewhere. Carrie owned and operated the Pocono Dance Center in East Stroudsburg for over 20 years. In her long career as a dance teacher, she has taught all forms of dance to hundreds of children in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, including a popular Kindermusic class for toddlers. Until recently, she was still choreographing for her beloved Silver Tappers, a group that continues to perform in the Poconos at nursing homes and events. She also taught dance as an Adjunct Professor at both Northampton and Bergen Community Colleges. Carrie was also a lifetime member of the Dance Teachers Association of New Jersey.

Carrie was a loving daughter, wife, mother, nana, and sister. She will live on in all the students to
whom she gave the joy of dance.

Visitation will be at the Joseph Pula Funeral Home 23 N 9th Street, Stroudsburg, PA 18360 from 4:00 – 6:00 on Thursday, September 19th, followed by a short prayer service and a celebration of life from 6:00 – 7:00. Carrie’s last wish is for everyone to wear something other than black when coming to visit.
