Community Memorial for Carissa Hinz

In Memory Of Carissa Hinz

This Sunday evening, June 23, 5pm, Bridgeport friends, family, and community members will gather to commemorate the life of Carissa Hinz, whose life was taken unexpectedly, and far to soon. 

(For services Saturday in Paxton, IL, please see below).

Please join us in honoring Carissa and supporting her friends. An offering will be taken to help cover the family's costs. You may also donate, now, through the Bridgeport Coffee House. A reception will follow in the auditorium. There will be free street parking available from Union Ave. to Wallace on 31st St for all attendees. Please see the note below, as Carissa's case is still open. May she rest in peace.

Saturday, June 22, Visitation will be from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Baier Family Funeral Services, 406 E. Pells St., Paxton, followed by a graveside service at Glen Cemetery, Paxton, with the Rev. Terry L. Westerfield officiating.
Ms. Hinz was born July 24, 1991, in Libertyville, the daughter of Michael E. and Sherry L. Smith Elliott. She attended elementary school in Carey, moved to Paxton in 2002 and graduated from Paxton-Buckley-Loda High School in 2009. She graduated from the American Academy of Art in Chicago in 2013 and received a bachelor’s degree in graphic design. She was employed by the Bridgeport Coffee House.
As a high school student, she was a member of the speech team and the yearbook staff. During college, she was a member of the film club. Her hobbies included drawing and photography. She enjoyed taking walks and her cats.
