Mary Agnes Jackson Carter, age 78, passed away Tuesday, Nov. 25, 2014 at her home in Rockingham, N.C.

She was born on April 30, 1936 to Eldred Elbert Jackson and Esther Mae Autry in the Cedar Creek community in Cumberland County, N.C. She graduated from Stedman High School, class of 1954, and graduated from the Hamlet Hospital School of Nursing in 1957.

She married Eldridge Martin Carter Jr. on Feb. 22, 1958 in Bennettsville, S.C. Together, they owned and operated Carter Funeral Home for over 40 years until Eldridge's declining health led to its sale in 1998.

She was preceded in death by her husband; her parents; and her two younger brothers, Elbert Jackson and Asa Jackson.

She is survived by two daughters, Karen Carter Macfarlane (Roger) of Provo, Utah and Elizabeth Carter Harvey (Chris) of Raleigh, N.C. She is also survived by six grandchildren, Gregory Macfarlane (Leslie), Charlotte Macfarlane, Leslie Macfarlane Nielson (Tom), Caroline Macfarlane, William Harvey and Graham Harvey.

A funeral service will be held at 2 p.m. Friday in Carter Colonial Chapel. Interment will follow in Eastside Cemetery.
