Nancy Carol Carter, 75, of Lucerne, California, passed away on May 21, 2022 after many years of being “Carter Strong” while fighting cancer.
Nancy was born and raised in Reisterstown, Maryland, the daughter of James Robert “Bob” and Helen Carter. She is survived by her children, Jennifer (Jason) Voss of Aurora, Colorado, Jessica (Kris) Byrd of Lucerne, California, and Jason (Valarie) Ferguson of Lowgap, North Carolina, and grandchildren, Natalie, Joey, Bailee, Harmony, Connor, Carter, Seth and Kaleb.
>Nancy had a smile that could light up the room and she lived life to its fullest. She was happiest spending time with her family and dear friends, decorating a different themed Christmas tree for every room in the house, creating eclectic art, riding horses, treasure hunting at the beach, telling and re-telling stories, and cooking feasts to share with her loved ones. Her family is forever grateful to have shared these moments with her. She will be remembered by her grandchildren, the light of her life and their ultimate cheerleader, as a silly Grandmom who made them laugh by her comedic antics and for her famous brownies that she made whenever requested (which was often).
A Celebration of Life, as she would have wanted, will take place at St. John’s Episcopal Church on June 4, 2022, 11:00am with refreshments following at the location of 1190 N. Forbes Street, Lakeport, CA, 95453. A Celebration of Life will also be held in Maryland at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Epona’s Equine horse rescue in Kelseyville, CA and to the Lake County Arts Council in Lakeport, CA. Both expressing herself through her eclectic art and allowing her soul to shine bright while riding were her forever passions.
