Carrie T. Sexton, age 96, passed away Sunday, August 15, 2021 at Francis Marion Manor.
Miss Carrie was a loving and devoted wife, mom, and grandmother. She loved to be with her family most of all. Carrie was a loving friend who spent as much time as she could being with them. Shopping, talking on the phone, and watching her stories on tv were just a few of the things she enjoyed, as well as reading her Bible and prayer time. Carrie retired from "the hill" after 38 years in food service. Her kind smile and gentle way will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Reber Sexton; parents, William and Nannie Thompson; siblings, Reeves Thompson, Trixie Shumate, Blye Pugh, Wanda McGrady, Greer Thompson and Wave Brooks; good friends, Edna Seymour and Ruby Johnson.
