At the age of twenty-six her health began to fail her, in and out of the hospital. Despite her illness her faith never wavered. She took care of her husband and her children. Children were dear to her heart, and she loved them all. She knew they were special gifts from God. She would often say " The world would be a better place if everyone had more love in their hearts."
She looked forward to vacationing with her family; going to Florida and hanging out in the cabins having fun.
On November 1, 2012, Zadie lost her husband and best friend Chancy Sr., also preceding her in death; one sister, Mary Pressley; four brothers, Ernest Carter, James Carter, Robert Carter II and Howard Carter.
