Carolyn Murphey Carter, age 78, entered into rest on Monday, March 16, 2020 following an extended illness.

Carolyn was born in Augusta to the late Eugene Roy Murphey, Jr. and Lucia Louise LaMountt Murphey. She was a proud graduate of Richmond Academy and Augusta College. Holding an EdS, she will be remembered at John S. Davidson Fine Arts Magnet School and T.W. Josey High School for teaching numerous subjects including Geometry and Typing. Away from school she enjoyed watching the Braves and the Bulldogs, and reading. An accomplished seamstress, Carolyn’s dresses were worn during several Miss Georgia and Miss USA pageants, and her costumes were worn during numerous recitals at Augusta West Dance Studio.

She is survived by her three children, Rebecca Swindol (Terry) of Clayton, North Carolina, Brian “Bubba” Carter (Kimberly) of Colbert, and Frankie Sizemore (Jimmy) of Evans; four grandchildren, Kevin Sizemore, Michael Sizemore, Sarah Carter, and Emily Carter; one sister, Janice Trulson (Art) of Augusta; two nieces, Debbie McKenzie (Richard) of North Augusta and Christina Morris of Augusta; and her former husband and the father of her children, Frank Carter of Statesboro.

The family will receive friends from 1-2:00 P.M. Thursday at Platt’s Belair Road. A graveside service will be 2:30 P.M. Thursday in Westview Cemetery. Reverend Tac Coley will officiate.
