Helen Louise Carter was born August 31, 1926, in Lytton Springs, Texas. She was the fifth child and the youngest daughter of Georgia and Ammie Carter Sr.

Helen accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior at an early age and her love for Him was demonstrated in her service to her church and her community. When healthy, she served as the church's secretary, President of Mission Two, sung in the choir and played a role in aiding the Pastor. She was a contributing member to the Juneteenth Association and was a regular participant in the annual event even after her health started to decline.

She was President of the Progressive Club in Lockhart for several years. During her tenure in that role, several academic scholarships were handed out to deserving students. To this day, donations are still being received resulting from her relationship with donors.

She will be remembered for her zest for life and a strong sense to continue to live regardless of her personal circumstances. Her cooking, her hair salon, her love for family and friends, her incredible work ethic and her willingness to freely share with others will remain a standing legacy. Above all she was and will forever be Mom. She was GOD's gift to five children that adored her beyond measure. Her role as Mom became greater as Grandma, Granny, and Mama Helen.

Preceding her in death was her son, Donald Carter and her siblings; Ammie Carter Jr., Norman Carter, Vera Roland, Era Hill, and Ima Anderson.

Helen leaves to cherish her precious memories, her eldest son Curtis McVade (Patricia), her daughter Orbrianeice Daniels (Ernest), both from Austin and sons; Jimmy Carter of Lockhart, Texas and Alton Carter (Tammy) of Austin, Texas. She leaves fifteen grandchildren and twelve great-grandchildren. She also leaves behind her sister-in-law Eula Carter and brother-in-law Lindsey Hill, Elaine Holt, Virginia DeShay, Pastor L. L. Carter, Matthew Carter, daughter-in-law Vanessa Carter, and a host of nieces and nephews.
