Louise was born in Memphis, TN on November 23, 1923. She married Denver Lamar Carter, Sr. in Indianola, MS in 1946 and had three sons, Denver Lamar Carter, Jr., John Stubblefield Carter and William David Carter.
Louise was of vivacious character, strong-willed and feisty. She reared her three sons, Bubba, John and Bill after the untimely death of her husband in 1962. Never one to let life get her down, Louise soldiered on and created a life for herself and her sons in Magee, MS. Louise loved fellowshipping with her friends, cooking to share with those in the community, etc. In her later years, she loved watching Wheel of Fortune everyday with her best friend Theda Berry before Theda’s passing.
