Annette Carter

March 20, 1958 - December 29, 2020
Annette Carter


Lucille “Annette” Carter, 62, was born on March 20, 1958 and left this life all too soon to enter her eternal home on December 29, 2020.

Although her death was very sudden and unexpected, her final days were spent surrounded by her family as she celebrated the Christmas holiday with the ones she loved the most.

Annette touched many lives through the years with her contagious smile, sense of humor, and zest for life. All who knew her were aware of her love and enjoyment for going to the beach, going to concerts to see her favorite Christian artists (mostly Tobymac!), watching TV and going to the Movies. She especially enjoyed “Grey’s Anatomy”, “Homicide Hunter” and any movie with Idris Elba😊.

Annette was part of the Venture Church family in Wilmington, NC. She looked forward to attending the services and taking part in worship with other Christians. She also participated in Small Groups at Venture.

Annette is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Justin and Elisabeth Carter; her grandson, Landyn Carter; her brothers and sisters, Marvin Carter, Jr. and his wife Pam, Randy Carter, Tim Carter and his wife, Mary, Brenda Heflin and Angela Carter along with a niece and 3 nephews and many other relatives.

Annette was preceded in death by her father, Marvin Carter, Sr. and her mother, Merilyn Semans Carter.

There are no services planned at this time.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Venture Church at jointheventure.com or Annette’s favorite non-profit organization, The Innocence Project at innocenceproject.org.
