Ms. Teresa Carter, 58, passed away on Tuesday morning, March 10, 2020 in Johnston County.

A memorial service will be held Sunday, March 15th, at 3:00 PM at Royal-Hall Funeral Home Chapel with Rev. Jimmy Flowers officiating. A visitation for family and friends will be held immediately following the service in the chapel on Sunday.

Born on July 17, 1961 in Sampson County, Teresa was the daughter of the late Lonnie George and Fannie Byrd Carter and attended Union High School. Teresa was a people person and loved everybody. If she didn’t know you, then it wasn’t very long and you were talking to her like you’d known her forever and you were immediate friends. Everyone was instantly drawn to her vivacious personality and her genuine kindness. She was full of life and embraced it to the fullest. Her great big smile would light up any room.  When Teresa was in the room, you knew it – because you felt her love.  She always put others before herself. She loved cooking and sharing not only her meals, but anything else she had to offer a friend or family member. She would give anyone the shirt off her back or the last dime she had. She was just that type of woman. She owned her own cleaning business for most of her life and worked whenever and wherever she needed to be. No matter how tired she was – she kept going. She loved antiques, decorating her home and yard for every holiday and season of the year and loved spending time with her family, friends and her Poodle, “Doc”. 

Those left to cherish her memory are: daughter, Amanda Taylor; daughter, Candice Carr and wife, Kirston; sister, Wanda “Carolyn” Tart and husband, Ronnie of Dunn; six grandchildren; and several cousins and nephews.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by a brother, Lonnie “Buddy” George Carter, Jr.

Teresa’s passing was a tragic accident, and her family, loved ones and friends are all in shock and heartbroken.  If anyone would like to help her daughters out with the financial burden of the funeral costs, please contact Royal-Hall Funeral Home by phone or by email ( – anything will be greatly appreciated.
