The Passing of Mrs. Carter

On Saturday evening June 26th came the close of one of the noblest lives of Enterprise. Though she had been battling against a dreadful disease for many months and had been expected for days, the fact that she had at last entered the Great Beyond came with a shock of personal bereavement to the large circle of friends. By the little children who had the privilege of knowing her she was endearingly called “Grandma Carter” and she was a lovely example of that noblest type of woman, a Christian mother to the community.

Annabel Fulton was born in Belmont county Ohio Jan. 28, 1856, at the time of her death being 64 years, 5 months and 6 days of age.

At the age of four years she went with her parents to the state of Missouri and at the age of twenty-three was united in marriage to James R. Carter. They came west a few years later and settled in Wallowa county on Alder Slope, thirty years ago. They became residents of Enterprise, nine years ago having since resided here.

For the past year Mrs. Carter’s health has been noticeably falling.

On April 21 she went to Portland to consult Dr. Rocky and underwent an operation there five days later. But all that medical skill could do was unavailing to allay her suffering which she endured with wonderful courage. An active member of the Baptist church since 22 years of age. She was ever loyal and hard working in all its activities and her passing will leave a great void in her church.

She is survived by the husband, J. R. Carter and four daughters, Mrs. V. C. Hart, Mrs. S. Burge, of Enterprise, Mrs. Oscar Estes, of Joseph and Mrs. W. O. Treanor of Ottumwa, Iowa. Two little sons died early in life.

The funeral was held at the residence Monday June 28, Rev. Mergler in charge. Interment was made in the Enterprise cemetery.
