Daisy M. Carter, aged 75, passed away on January 19, 2024, after a courageous battle with Glioblastoma, first diagnosed in April 2022.
Born on February 19, 1948, in Madison County, FL, Daisy was a beacon of light and joy to all who knew her. She graduated from Washington Street High School in Quitman, GA, and later attended Valdosta Tech, where she earned a degree in Administration. Daisy’s professional journey began at the FBI, and she soon found her long-standing career home in Medical Administration, with Group Health Association, where she dedicated over 30 years of service.
After marrying, Daisy embraced her role as a conscious and influential mother to Chris and Katrina, cherishing her family deeply. Her joy was most evident in her numerous visits to Solomons Island, Shenandoah, and on many memorable fishing trips with her family. Known for her unique blend of quirkiness, humor, and being the life of the party, Daisy was also a fashionista, always impeccably dressed. Her traits as a knowledgeable adviser, problem solver, and caring soul made her beloved by many.
Daisy had a passion for chatting with friends and sewing, creating beautiful pieces that were cherished by those lucky enough to receive them. She was not afraid of hard work, a quality that was admired and respected by all who knew her. One of Daisy’s most endearing qualities was her beautiful smile, which would light up any room and bring comfort and happiness to those around her. This smile, a true reflection of her kind and spirited nature, will be missed by all who had the pleasure of experiencing it.
She is predeceased by her parents, Mary and Deacon Henry Jordan Sr., her siblings Betty and Henry Jr., and her beloved son, Chris. Daisy’s memory will be cherished and kept alive by her three sisters, Margaret, Pinky, and Bessie; her daughter Katrina; her nieces and nephews LaShawn, Brian, Lamar, Jared, and Eric; six grandchildren, William (Angelica), Dewayne, Shayla, Sierra, Elijah, and Chris; and two great-grandchildren, Ezra and Leia.
Daisy’s life was a testament to her strength, love, zest for life, and her unwavering work ethic. She will be profoundly missed but forever remembered as a guiding light and her radiant smile in the lives of her family and friends.
The family will receive friends at the Cunningham Turch Funeral Home, 811 Cameron Street, Alexandria, VA 22314 on Saturday, January 27, 2024 from 12 Noon until the time of her Life Celebration at 1:00 PM
