Tragic news from the Livingston County Sheriff's Office.
Sheriff Thomas Dougherty says the entire department is mourning the loss of colleague and friend, Deputy Carrie Merrick.
Carrie was diagnosed with cancer in January of this year and battled the disease "with the same qualities that made her a stand-out Deputy Sheriff: courage, determination, bravery and positive perspectives," the office said.
Deputy Merrick was hired by the Sheriff's Office in 2007 and assigned to the Corrections Division.
Calling hours are Wednesday in Geneseo with funeral services Thursday.
