Katie Rae Carter Clark, 77, matriarch who adored her family

BURGAW — Katie Rae Carter Clark, 77, passed gently from her earthly life Friday, July 3, 2020, at Pender Memorial Hospital.

She was born Sept. 8, 1942, in Pender County, the daughter of the late Willie Ray Carter and Elizabeth Blizzard Carter. Also remembered is her brother, Stanley Carter, who preceded Katie in death.

Katie is survived by her husband of 55 years, Oliver H. Clark; daughters, Elizabeth “Beth” Burns, and her husband, Jim, and Regina Lefler, and her husband, Max; grandchildren, Hayden Burns and Reece Lefler; brother, Billy Carter, and his wife, Mary; and many extended family and friends.

First and foremost, Katie had a strong Christian faith. She was a devoted wife, mother, Nana to her grandchildren, sister, and friend. She was loved and will be greatly missed.

Due to the current health concerns in our country, there will be a private graveside service.
