Brenda Carter

March 23, 1952 — November 13, 2023

In the early morning hours of November 13, 2023, our beloved Brenda Gail Carter, affectionately known as P'Nut, was called home to be with the Lord. Born on March 23, 1952, in Fredericksburg, VA, she was a beacon of light and love to all who knew her. Her journey on earth ended in Greenville, SC, but her spirit lives on in the hearts of those she touched.

P'Nut was a cherished member of a loving family. She was the proud mother of Brian Walker Carter and Jonathon Brett Carter, and the adoring grandmother to Chandler Jonathan Keyle Carter and Isaac Matthew Carter. P'Nut was predeceased by her loving husband, Dennis Linwood Carter, and her dear mother, Jannette Stanley Smith and her father, Nelson Smith. She is survived by her brothers, Gordon Lee Smith and Nelson Bryant Smith. Her nieces, Brittney Smith, Summer Smith, Jr., Kristina Pease, Elizabeth Wilson, and Katherine Smith, and nephew Gordan Lee Smith Jr., will remember her fondly.

P'Nut was a woman of great intellect and determination. She completed her high school education at Caroline High School, Class on 1970 in Bowling Green in Virginia and was a member of the girls ensemble and choirs, and embarked on a successful career in advertising and sales. For 26 years, she served the Greenville News with dedication and passion, retiring as a respected member of the team. Her faith was a cornerstone of her life, and she was a proud member of the Grace Christian Church Praise Team. She also lent her voice to the South Carolina Mass Choir, spreading joy and hope through song.

P'Nut was a woman of action, always seeking ways to contribute to her community. She was the founder of the Celebrity Softball League and the Taylors Youth Association for their youth football league. Her efforts brought joy and camaraderie to the community, and her legacy will continue to inspire future generations.

P'Nut was a woman of many virtues. She was loving, always ready with a kind word or a comforting hug. She was faith-filled, her belief in God unwavering even in the face of adversity. She was selfless, always putting the needs of others before her own. Her spirit was a testament to the power of love and faith, and her memory will continue to inspire all who knew her.

In the words of the good book, "Well done, thou good and faithful servant." P'Nut lived her life in service to others, her faith guiding her every step of the way. She was a beacon of light in a sometimes dark world, her love and kindness a testament to the power of faith. She will be dearly missed, but her spirit will live on in the hearts of those she touched.

As we say goodbye to our beloved P'Nut, let us remember her not with sorrow, but with joy. Let us celebrate her life and the love she shared with us. Let us remember her faith and her dedication to her community. And let us strive to live our lives with the same love, faith, and selflessness that she showed us every day.

In the words of the old hymn, "When we all get to heaven, what a day of rejoicing that will be." Today, we rejoice in the knowledge that P'Nut is at peace, her faith rewarded with eternal life. We will miss her dearly, but we take comfort in the knowledge that she is with the Lord, her journey on earth complete.

Rest in peace, dear P'Nut. Your memory will be in our hearts.
