Carrie Jeter was a caring wife, mother, sister, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend. She peacefully transited to her Heavenly home on June 7, 2021, at age 90.
She was born to Anderson and Bessie (Young) Hopkins on August 24, 1930, in Blair, South Carolina. Carrie is preceded in death by her husband, Andrew Jeter, father, Anderson Hopkins, mother, Bessie (Young) Hopkins, grandmother, Lizzie Caldwell, sisters, Mary Agnes Jackson and Shirley Mitchell. Left to cherish her memory are her children, grandchildren, Ashley (Jonathan) Carter, Brian Moore, Brittni Griffin, Shawn Williams II, great-grandchildren Hezekiah, Kenyon, Jonathan, Kingston, and a host of loving cousins, nieces, and nephews.
At an early age, she decided to devote her life to Christ by getting baptized at Gethsemane Baptist Church in Blair, South Carolina. After attending school, Carrie moved to Philadelphia to pursue her dreams. She then moved to Columbus, Ohio, where she met her husband, Andrew Jeter. Carrie and Andrew raised their three children: Audrey, Martha, and Wenda. In addition, when the need arose, they were influential in the lives of their special nephew and niece, Joeseph and Geraldine. Carrie loved spending time in the kitchen, creating delicious meals for her family and friends. She never met a stranger and was known to have a way with words, which were only made more humorous with her spirited personality. Many who knew and loved her admired her quick wit and the courage she always had to speak her mind. She was a pillar in her community whose generosity knew no bounds, she was there for so many with nurturing advice, a comforting embrace, or even a helping hand when needed.
