Dorothy was born August 1, 1928 in Summerville, SC, the daughter of the late Ruben Edward Sweatman and Ida Elizabeth Grooms Sweatman. She worked in the assembly line for Paragon Electric. She loved cooking, listening to good music, and the Smoky Mountains, but most of all, she loved her family, friends, Ladie's Life Connection Group, and Northwood Baptist Church.
Dorothy is survived by her two sons, L. Wayne Carter (Luci) of Summerville, SC and Greg Carter of Goose Creek, SC; two daughters, Robin Donnelly (Chris) of Summerville, SC and Wanda Farinelli (Jim) of Waxhaw, NC; six grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren. In addition to her parents, she is predeceased by her loving husband of 64 years, Lewis Carter.
The family would like to extend their thanks to Patriot Hospice and their staff, and also to the precious staff at Cypress Place. You were truly a gift from God. Only He could have provided this wonderful, loving environment for our precious Mother. We love you.
