June 11, 1949 ~ June 20, 2022
Julia “JoAnn” Jackson Carter, 73 of Gonzales, Louisiana went to be with Jesus on Monday, June 20, 2022.
She is survived by Marvin Carter, her doting husband of 54 years, sons Michael (Carla) Carter and Kevin (Kattie) Carter, grandchildren Chance Carter, Chloe (Mason) Inman, and Cole Carter and her great granddaughter Paisley.
She was so passionate about things she loved. For most of her life she loved cooking from scratch for her family and sharing her knowledge of it. She was known for being her sons’ biggest fan throughout all of their sporting activities – especially when they wrestled in high school. She enjoyed motorcycle trips with her husband and CMA friends, spoke often of their unforgettable retirement trip to Italy, she got excited over stock market trends and any “As Seen on TV” products she could order. She always got a kick out of initiating intense political debates. She often shared her personal stories of recovery from her near-death experiences with anyone and everyone she met. If she cracked a joke, she insisted that you laugh. She loved chocolate, especially KitKats and was obsessed with taking pictures and videos of her children and grandchildren. Most of all she was passionate about Jesus and prayed to be by His side before Mr. Marvin. Her family is grateful she is now rejoicing and all of her burdens are gone. Anyone who has been there to care for her will now appreciate those moments more than ever. There will never be another quite like her, and she will be forever remembered and missed.
Visitation will be held at Seale Funeral Home, Denham Springs, LA, Friday, June 24, from 9 a.m. until service at 10 a.m. Burial will follow at Hiram Stafford Cemetery, Walker, LA. Please share your condolences at www.sealefuneral.com.
