Phyllis Jean (Weeks) Carter of Hilliard, Ohio, went to be with the Lord, February 19, 2021. Born in Bellefontaine, Ohio October 9, 1929 to William C. and Nellie (Plum) Weeks. Married at the Church of Christ in Bellefontaine, Ohio on May 12, 1951 to her High School sweetheart Arlin N. Carter, who proceeded her in death on November 2, 1995.
After graduating in 1947 from Bellefontaine High School, Phyllis worked for the city of Bellefontaine in the Water and Electric Division, where she processed customer invoices. For the past 20 plus years was a member of Hilliard Church of Christ. Phyllis’ spiritual gift was service, which she applied holding jobs at Hilliard City Schools in the cafeteria, the Coffee shop at J.C. Penney’s, and Hostess at a diner in Norwalk, Ohio.
She loved to read mystery and romance novels and her favorite television shows were westerns. She loved to laugh and was most always seen with a smile on her face, especially when her Grandchildren came for a visit. She also enjoyed, and was blessed, by the relationships and fellowship with close church friends, who continued to communicate with her as the dementia increased. The family would like to give a special thanks to mom’s special friend Ruby Butt, who for many years would be her chauffeur to and from church and luncheon outings with other friends when she was not physically able.
