Katherine Elizabeth (Katie Beth) Carter, 18, passed away Monday, Sept. 5, 2016, in an Atlanta hospital. She was an honor graduate at Heritage High School class of 2016 and was currently attending Jacksonville State University, where she was majoring in Early Childhood Education. She was a member of City Church of Chattanooga, where she volunteered in the church nursery because she loved children. Her other passion was dancing and was a member of the Scenic City Dance Center as well as a member of the Jacksonville State University Marching Ballerinas. She loved her youth group at City Church, she loved to laugh, and she loved her family, especially family game night, but above all, she loved her Lord Jesus Christ. She leaves behind to cherish her memory, her parents, Jason and Amy Carter, of Ringgold; sister, Kimi Carter; and brother, Jacob Daniel Carter and his fiance, Rachel Rebne, all of Ringgold, Ga.; grandparents, James Daniel and Gayle Carter, of Ringgold; Debbie and George Anthros, of Canton, Ga., and Dan and Jane Green, of Atlanta, Ga.; uncles, Noah Green, of Atlanta, Ga., Joey Anthros, of Canton, Ga., and Josh and Jennifer Carter, of Bremen, Ga. Funeral services will be conducted at 7 p.m. today, at the City Church of Chattanooga. There will be a private closing service at Anderson Memorial Gardens.
