Carmen Cashat passed on August 20, 2020 in Ft. Worth, Texas. She was born February 4, 1961 in Louisville, Kentucky to her parents, Tippi and Bill Ward. She graduated from John Burroughs High School in Burbank, CA in 1979. She received a Bachelor of Arts in Communications from University of Texas Arlington. Carmen loved traveling, listening to Tom Petty, going to concerts, and socializing.

She started work at Southwestern Bell Yellow Pages in 1991 in sales where almost from day one, she endeared herself to coworkers, training staff and managers, many whom became lifelong friends. Training classes were not only informative but always fun while Carmen and trainers traded funny observations and anecdotes. She was a leader, and in addition to her big personality she especially excelled in her work. In 1999 she retired after deciding it was time to focus on being a full-time mom, wife, and volunteer for many charitable causes close to her heart. She will be deeply missed and forever remembered.

Carmen is survived by her loving husband of 37 years, Robert Cashat; son, Cameron Cashat and wife Danielle; grandchildren, Sophia and James; mother, Tippi Pyle; brother, Cameron Wardlaw, and numerous other cousins and extended family.

She is preceded in death by her father, Bill Ward.

Due to Covid-19 there will be a private family Graveside Service will be at 10:00AM, Friday, August 28, 2020 at Forreston Cemetery. Live Streaming of the service will be available to view for family and friends.

I don't even know where to start. We were just texting and sending goofy pics a couple weeks ago, to never getting to hear you say Heeyyy in your beautiful Texan drawl. I love you Carmen! You were such a true friend to so many of us. From Elementary school to all our fun mini reunions, to dinner at The Buchanan Arms, to dancing at my wedding, to just laughing the night away. You will NEVER be forgotten. We all will keep in touch with your beautiful family for you and always keep your spirit alive. God speed Carmen my friend. I will always miss you, but promise to always tell fun stories for you. Love ya, Tracy

My deepest condolences to all the family. Dear Carmen is so loved and treasured. I will always carry her in my heart. I had the blessing and privilege of meeting Carm in high school and having spent time with her at our 40th reunion was a true gift. My heart aches at her loss. As a Mexican-American, I will always hold dear her love of the Hispanic culture and the fact that she spoke Spanish. My continued prayers for all of the family.

Continued prayers for Robert and all of the family~ I have so many wonderful memories with Carmen. I am so grateful for her love and friendship. Carmen and I went to Stevenson Elementary School together with our "core" friends. When we were young, we used to sing and record on her cassette player all the songs from the kids shows we knew and current songs of the day; new zoo review, bugaloos, you're so vain, etc. 😁 She had great parties and I even had my 1st kiss at one.
Well, we all grew up and some went separate ways. More than 10 years ago, we reconnected and have never gone back! I was invited to Robert and Carmen's house in 2009 along with Mike V. Well, 1 week and over 300 pics later, to say we had the time of our lives is an understatement. We cooked, we laughed, we had jello shots, we laughed, we fished and jet skied and played games and laughed till we peed our pants! (Literally!) That's how you rolled whenever you are with Carm. We continued through the years with our late night talks, always had our traditional hair and makeup done together for our reunions and she always made time to see all of us when she came into town. She loved life, her family and her friends. I love my schniggles and miss her everyday! 💞
