September 16, 1936 - August 4, 2021
Mrs. Edna McClurkin Carter was born on September 16, 1936, to the late Edna Lane McClurkin and General Taylor McClurkin in Talladega, Alabama. Edna confessed Christ at an early age and united with Antioch Baptist Church. She attended Antioch School and later in life she remained a servant of God and began worshipping and serving the Lord at Tinney Street Church of Christ. She loved her church family and loved serving the Lord. A few of her hobbies that she was taught at an early age included quilting and sewing. She sewed for the community and loved to cook. Her food was not only known for feeding the body, but it was also known for feeding the soul. Her children and grandchildren were the apples of her eye. She loved them with all her heart and soul. Dancing was a passion of Mrs. Edna's, and she had a special little dance she loved doing for the nurses at Talladega Health Care. Most of all, Edna was a faithful church member, devoted mother, grandmother, and friend to many. On the morning of August 4, 2021, after God had graciously given Edna to us for eighty-four long earthly years, he felt it was time for him to peacefully close her eyes one last time to this earthly world, accept her new wings and fly to her new eternal home on high joining all her loved ones that had preceded her in death including her husband, Jimmy Carter and parents, Edna Lane McClurkin and General Taylor McClurkin. She leaves to cherish her loving memories; her four loving daughters, Imogene (Troy) Garrett of Talladega, Alabama, Deborah (Nelson) Pittman of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, Aletha (John) Wilson of Anniston, Alabama, and Veronica Carter of Jacksonville, Alabama; two sons, Jimmy L. Carter of Governor, New York and Derrick (Lee) Carter of Fairburn, Georgia; one sister, Mittie Garrett, of Talladega, Alabama; and a host of grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.
