Susan Mabelene Walker Carter went to be with the Lord on November 3, 2023. Her journey did not end but is merely the beginning of everlasting life with our Heavenly Father. Mabelene was born on March 26, 1936, in Whiteville, NC to the late Frank and Vernie Walker.
Mabelene was preceded in death by her partner, Robert Wright; sister, Margaret Hufham; brothers, Richard Walker and O’Neil Walker; son, Andy Carter.
Mabelene is survived by her older sister, Ruby Thompson (Mabelene liked to let everyone know she was the baby sister); daughter, Scarlett Spencer (Greg); daughter, Darlene Hart (Bob); grandchildren, Sara Carter, Jonny Spencer (Jenny), Katie Spencer, Jamison Hart and Brittany Thaxton; greatgrandchildren, Summer, Slater, Silas, Stella, Carter, Cohen, and Nico; and many friends.
Mabelene’s career consisted of waitressing at Western Sizzlin where she made many friends. Mabelene was a friend of Bill W. for 48 years and spent many years mentoring others in recovery. In her most recent years, she enjoyed visits from her friends, spending time with her family, and watching her greatgrandchildren grow-up.
In honor of Mabelene, a celebration of life ceremony will be held at Olivet Baptist Church on November 18, 2023, at 3pm. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Mabelene’s home church, Olivet Baptist Church.
