Isabel (nee Britton) Carter died in her apartment at Brightview Mount Laurel surrounded by family (both in person and virtually) on April 9, 2020. She was 89. Isabel was born on November 15, 1930 in Riverside, New Jersey. She was a graduate of Riverside High School. On September 12, 1953, she married Walt Carter of Philadelphia, PA.

A longtime resident of both Beverly, NJ and Shamong, NJ, Isabel spent a good portion of her life as an exceptional mother and homemaker. Isabel loved to cook, garden, knit, and keep a beautiful home. Right up to the age of 87 and the unfortunate circumstance of a hip break, Isabel kept to a rigorous daily routine of cleaning, washing and meal preparation. In 1976, Isabel returned to the work force to help put her kids through college. She retired as a Western Union Operator in 1988. In retirement, Isabel discovered her passion and talent for painting both oils and water colors. She continued to take weekly art lessons (both for skills and for socializing with her art studio friends) until 2018. Isabel painted hundreds of paintings and thanks to Walt’s desire to frame them all, the homes of many loved ones are graced with Isabel’s exquisite talent.

Isabel was all about love. She loved people. She loved parties and dancing. She especially loved family. She was the youngest of six (Jim (Charlotte) Howard (Eleanor) and Eugene (D) Britton; Anna (Jake) Borden) Marie (Bob) Giovanetti). As the last of her siblings to leave this earth, Isabel made it her mission to keep the extended family in contact, and took the lead in planning family gatherings several times a year. She loved seeing her siblings’ spouses as well as her nieces and nephews. Days after these events, Isabel would describe them with great joy, and immediately start thinking about the next one.

She poured everything into her marriage and the raising of her children. She unequivocally supported her kids, fearlessly building their confidence and often being their most vocal fan. She balanced this nurturing with an appropriate dose of discipline and honesty. She adored her grandchildren. From 1991 through 2010, she provided free childcare to her beloved granddaughters, leaving a profound influence on each of their lives, and teaching them her many talents (plus how to play Pinochle and Poker). While living further away from her grandsons, she loved them just the same. After a call with one of her grandsons, she would express how it had “made her day”, and rave that Nat had played his guitar while on the phone or that Phil had described his latest travel adventure.

Isabel is survived by her three children, Mark (Jan Goldman-Carter) of Washington, DC, Lynne Daley (Tom) of Portland, Maine, Pat Carter-Sage (Tim Sage) of Marlton, NJ, five grandchildren (Phil and Nat Carter, Jill, Mel and Morgan Sage) and two cherished great-granddaughters.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, both the viewing and interment are private. A memorial service will be scheduled, publicized, and held at a later time. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Lewy Body Dementia Association, Inc., 912 Killian Hill Road S.W., Lilburn, GA 30047.

I extend my condolences to Pat, Mark, and Lynne, over the passing of their mother. I extend my condolences as well to other family members in their loss. Aunt Isabel was always very gracious to me when I visited from Texas and she was very pleasant to be around.
