Ms. Carla Brown Carter age 41 of 23 Ivy Chase Way Cartersville, Ga. passed away on Friday, December 9, 2011. Funeral Service will be Monday, December 12, 2011 at 1:00p.m. at Cartersville First Baptist Church 241 Douthit Ferry Rd. Cartersville, GA. The family will be receiving friends at the Funeral Home from 4:00p.m. to 6:00p.m. Sunday, December 11, 2011. In Lieu of flowers donations can be made to Bartow County Relay for Life.

Carla Latressa Brown was born October 28, 1970 to LM Brown and the late Carolyn Anderson Brown.

She joined St. Luke AME Church at an early age and was an active member of the choir. She later joined Christ Temple Rapture Preparation Center under the leadership of Elder Elijah Carter, sr.
Carla was a graduate of Cartersville High School, class of 1988. She furthered her education at Savannah State College. She was a member of the Savannah State marching band and served as the captain of the Flag Corp. While living on campus, Tim Mack caught Carla’s eye and they became college sweethearts. The two were inseparable. A true love was formed and Paris Rayona Brown was born.
After returning to Cartersville, she met married Nundall Carter in 1999, and to this union Justice Carter was born.
Carla was very passionate about her work with the Relay for Life. She believed that a cure for Breast Cancer was on the cutting edge and she wanted to do her part wipe out this disease. During the big campaign drive, her mission was to paint the town purple” and that she did!
We are going to miss her smile, and hearing saying, in her own little smart way “S-H-A-M-E” 
She was preceded in death by her beloved mother; Carolyn Anderson Brown, grandmother; Estell Hall, and brother; Harold Brown.
Left to cherish her memories: children; Paris and Justice, father ; LM Brown, step-father Elmar Joe Brown, one grandson Cameron Bryelle Davis, One brother Walter (Mann) Brown Sr., grandfather Walter H. Anderson, step-grandfather David L. Hall, two step-sisters; Sabrina Brown and Dominique Sanders,  two step-brothers; Thomas (Tammy) Brown, Prince Porter, Aunts, Special Aunt Lucy ( Lockey) Slocum, Uncles, Nieces, Nephews, and a host of other relatives and friends.

It saddens my heart to lose another relative to the disease of cancer. I know that Carla is in Heaven having the best time that she could possibly have with our Savior, Jesus Christ. So, I just want to encourage you (the immediate family) Know that our Carla is okay, and that what we see now here is just the shell that her spirit was in, she is already with Jesus. I love you guys and wish I could be there with you at this time.

To Carla's family and dearest friend Carmella, I know that God will send you His Comforter whenever you need. Not only on today but those days when you recall a special memory or go by a special place or that smile of hers touches your heart. Her pain is over. The road ahead for each of you will long. The blessing of time will turn your tears into smiles as you remember her. There will never be anyone like her. She was a dear friend of mine that I met at SSC. She was a blessing to my life. Although we didn't keep in touch as I would have liked, she always reached out just to check on. My heart goes out to each of you. Take care of each other.

To the Brown-Carter families, Carla was a beautiful person. I can remember the many days we practiced and performed together at Savannah State. We can all look at her now and say "WELL DONE". She is in a much better place and I know she is looking down on all of us smiling. Love you always Carla and I can't wait to see you at home.

Im so sorry for the loss of Carla, a beautiful woman. I met Carla when my dad was having Chemo and so was she. And, she always looked gorgeous! I then continued to run int o Carla at the gym where our sons would play ball against each other, and she always carried a beautiful smile....
I know her smile continues on in Heaven.

God Bless you.

When I learned of Carla's passing I was so hurt and deeply sadden. I am ashamed to say that I didn't even know she was sick, nor did I know her illness was due to such an insidious disease as cancer.

Her death has made me think about my own mortality as well as those I love, and how each day that we are given on this earth is by God's grace. It has made me realize the importance of friendship, and that no man is an island. Even though we say (very loosely), how short life is, do we really and truly know?

Carla I didn't get to tell you how special you were, and how proud I was to say that you were my cousin. However, one day I will be able to tell you all those things, because I'm striving to get where you are. Heaven!
