Yolanda Inett Carter was born on May 16, 1966, to Lozell and Francis Carter. Surrounded by her loving family, she peacefully transitioned to eternity with her Lord and Savior on December 8, 2019.
Affectionately regarded as "Inett", she attended Lake Highlands Children's Developmental Center where she graduated in 1988. She went on to enjoy working at Hamilton Park United Methodist Church Learning Center where she was faithful for more than 20 years. There, she helped the staff with the daily activities for the children. After many years of service there, she spent a few days weekly socializing with friends. Later, she was thrilled to become an honorary employee at Chamberland Funerals & Cremations where she was responsible for greeting and mingling with guests.
Inett was a longtime member of New Mount Zion Baptist Church under the leadership of Dr. R.E. Price, Sr. and Dr. Tommy L. Brown. She was an inspiring presence in various ministries, including the Youth Choir and Sanctuary Choir of which she was a member for many years. From anniversaries to annual days to funerals to Vacation Bible School, Inett was committed to building the kingdom of God and being a stellar member of her church.
Inett delighted in the simplest things in life, including trips to the grocery store, sharing dessert with her devoted mother, and supporting others' triumphs. She will be fondly remembered for her recollection of key events in others' lives, including the births of children, marriages, and the eternal transition of others.
Her smile was contagious, and her presence was illuminating. A person who genuinely loved people, Inett was loved dearly by all who were privileged to cross her path.
She was predeceased by her maternal grandparents, Conaway Moore, Sr. and Pearl Ella Moore; paternal grandparents, Timothy Carter and Odessa Carter; and several aunts and uncles. Those left to cherish precious memories and continue her legacy of love include her parents, Lozell and Francis Carter; brother, Marvin Mosley; other siblings: London Carter, Christine Moore, and Veronica Carter; aunts and uncles: Conaway Moore, Jr. (Willie), Jenny Brooks, Celestine Evans, John Moore (Patricia), Clara Bowens (Max Gerald) who she affectionately regarded as "Nana" and "Uncle Gerald", David Moore, Kenny Carter, and Jeff Carter; caregivers and friends, Regina Reynolds, Kizzie "Ms. Kay" Akil, Ruthesia "Pooh" Searcy, and Comfort Uhegbu; and a host of beloved nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
