Carolyn S. McCarter (January 6, 2020)

Carolyn S. McCarter, 77, of Greenville, Ohio, passed away, peacefully, with her family by her side, on Monday, January 6, 2020, at the State of the Heart Care Center in Greenville.

She was born on July 19, 1942, in Olive Hill, Kentucky, to the late Charles and Eva (Clay) Rowe.

In addition to her parents, Carolyn was preceded in death by her husband, Joel McCarter, whom she married on February 18, 1967; her grandparents, William and Georgia Clay; and her brother, John Carter.

Carolyn loved to enjoy time with her family and friends. It was not uncommon to find her having fun at FRAM picnics or while playing bingo. She liked to play cards with Lisa, Melinda, and Marge and go line dancing with Marge and Toby. She loved listening to Elvis and watching westerns, especially Roy Rogers. Carolyn loved sewing, quilting, and crafting in general. She was a member of The Order of the Eastern Star, Chapter #60 in Winchester, and spent many years working for FRAM.

Carolyn is survived by her children, Wendy (Mike) McCarter-Read of Greenville, and Anita Sargent and her fiancé, Joe Lodge, of Greenfield, Indiana; her grandchildren, Alexandria E. McCarter-Read and Grant Read; her siblings, Earl Eugene (Linda) Mozingo of Alabama, Shirley (Ted Ulmer) Slaughterbeck of Toledo, Ohio, Dennis (Tina) Mozingo of Oak Hill, Ohio, Brenda (Don) Coates of Toledo, and Linda Mozingo of Toledo; and numerous nieces and nephews.

A celebration of Carolyn’s life, beginning with The Order of the Eastern Star memorial service, will take place at 12:00 PM on Saturday, January 11, 2020, at Tribute Funeral Homes, Greenville Campus.

Guests may visit with her family on Saturday from 10:00 AM until the time of service at 12:00 PM.

A private family burial will take place at a later date in Brick Memorial Cemetery near Union City.
