Read more about the life story of Wilma "Jane" and share your memory.
Wilma “Jane” Carter, 78, of Fort Worth, Texas, formerly of Crossett, passed away on Tuesday, July 5, 2022. She was born in Lake Village, Arkansas on January 20, 1944, to her parents, O.M. and Vera Nadine Brosette Howell.
For twenty-six years, Jane worked as a bookkeeper for the Pierce-Grassi Lumber and Hardware Store in Crossett and later volunteered at the Ashley County Medical Center.
Jane was an adventurer who loved to travel. As a child of a United States Airman, she had the opportunity to see the world. She grew up living at duty stations all over the country and some in England.
As an adult, she enjoyed weekend trips, along with eating out at some of her favorite restaurants. Whether it was going to the Catfish Inn, The Piccadilly, or making her daily trips to the Sonic during “happy hour” with her best friend, Nancy Woods, Jane enjoyed life and especially enjoyed when she didn’t have to cook.
She was a kind and loving soul who went out of her way to help everyone. She was quiet, but funny and she loved her family immensely, especially her precious granddaughter, Abbigail.
She is preceded in death by her parents and one brother, William Robert “Bill” Howell, and one sister, Sue Hedgpeth.
She leaves behind her beloved husband of fifty-four years, James Wilson Carter; and two sons, James “Wilson” Carter, Jr., and Jason Todd Carter all of Fort Worth, TX; one aunt, Carol Parker of Bossier City, LA; and one granddaughter, Abbigail Carter
