Sophia was Carrie's mother, and Arthur's first wife. She is written in the series storyline as having died when Carrie was a teenager. Sophia's death, having lost the motherly support and guidance she needed, was described as having a traumatic effect on Carrie, which had an impact on her getting into a few bad relationships and dating a little promiscuously before she met Doug, which led her to change her formerly fast ways..In 1985, Sophia died, leaving Arthur a widower and the single parent of fifteen year old Carrie. With Arthur unable to stay employed steadily, Carrie was forced to work in addition to attending high school.
