Jeanette Johnson Carpenter

December 24, 1929 — May 5, 2023

McCaysville, GA

 

Jeanette Johnson Carpenter, age 93, a life-long resident of McCaysville, GA, while surrounded by her family, peacefully passed from her earthly home to be with the Lord on Friday, May 5, 2023.
Jeanette was born on Christmas Eve, December 24, 1929, to the late Ruth Davis Johnson and the late Fred A. Johnson.
 
Jeanette was a kind, loving, Christian lady who was loved by all who were blessed to know her. She was Salutatorian of the 1947 graduating class of McCaysville High School. She was a devoted wife and mother. Along with J.E. and Jerry, she spent many years tracing their family trees. She loved reading, quilting, visiting with friends, reading the Bible,  singing, and had a voluminous salt and pepper shaker collection.
 
She loved the Lord and was a valued member of the Voices of Hope Evangelistic Team, regularly attended church services, Awake America Prayer Meetings, and revivals. She was an inspiration to so many as she once attended a revival 21 nights straight.
 
In addition to her parents, Jeanette was predeceased by her loving husband of 61 ½ years, J.E. Carpenter, Jr., father-in-law and wife Jim & Elsie Carpenter, brother-in-law and wife, J.C. & Ruby Carpenter, and sister-in-law and husband, Lucille & Elvin Deal, aunts, uncles, and many cousins.
 
Jeanette was survived by her children: son, Jerry Carpenter; daughters and sons-in-laws, Trish (Patt) & Terry Whitlow and Sandra & Terry Reamsnyder; grandchildren, Stacy & Heather Whitlow and Jason & Joanna Whitlow; great-grandchildren, Brody, Brayden, Jack and Eli Whitlow; brother & wife, Tommy & Rachel Davis; niece & and husband, Sheila & Jeff Taylor; and great-niece and nephew, Kelleigh & Josh Taylor; as well as many cousins.
 
A special thank you to the staff of Appalachian Hospice for their help and kindness to Mom and her family.
