Marion Carter Obituary

Marion Glyn Jessup Carter, 90, of Wallace passed from this earthly life to her eternal rest on Saturday, January 20, 2024.

She was born on June 18, 1933, in Bladen County, NC to the late Benjamin Franklin and Ila Daniel Jessup.  She was also preceded in death by her husband of 50 years, Almon Hill Carter and her brother Benjamin “Ben” Jessup.    

Mrs. Carter was an active member of Wallace Methodist Church where she sang in the choir and served in various ministries in the church throughout the years as long as her health permitted.

Surviving to cherish her memory are her daughters, Donna Glyn Carter and Arden Renee Carter, both of New Bern, NC; son Almon Hill Carter III and wife Katherine of Palmyra, VA; grandchildren Hayden Carter and wife Clara, Benjamin Carter and Allyson Carter; great granddaughter Madison Carter; siblings, Julian Jessup of Dunn, Sue Davidson and husband Jim of Richmond, VA; sister-in-law Emily Jessup of Wallace; numerous nieces, nephews, extended family and friends that loved Marion dearly.

Marion was a loving mother, grandmother and sister.  She enjoyed the simplest things in life, but her greatest joy was her family.  Marion enjoyed playing Bridge and spending time with her family and extended family.  With a big heart, she loved others and was loved in return. Marion was active in her community and was a member of the Woman’s Club and Garden Club of Wallace. She was a woman of uncommon character, beauty and grace; and to those who knew her, “an instrument of God’s love on this earth”. Marion will surely be missed but treasured memories will forever remain in the hearts of those who knew and loved her.
