Mrs. Patricia Ann Athey Angell Carter, 82, of Country Lane, Mocksville, passed away peacefully on Sunday, Dec. 3, 2023 at Kate B. Reynolds Hospice Home in Winston Salem.

She was born on Aug. 7, 1941 in Rowan County to the late Cordell Nathaniel and Dorothy Jeanette Kimble Athey.

Pat had a huge heart and always enjoyed being around friends. She never met a stranger and had a great sense of humor. Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren were the light of her world, and she leaves behind a legacy of love and laughter that will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by: her first husband, Isaac Marshall Angell; and a brother, Jerry Athey.

Survivors include: her husband, Larry Dean Carter; 3 children, Chris Angell (Melinda) of Lexington, Phillip Angell of Concord, and LaDeana Carter Wyrick (Cam) of Waxhaw; 5 grandchildren, Kirston Angell, Chase Angell, Lilli Angell, Lindley Wyrick, and Cali Wyrick; 2 great-grandchildren, Caroline Angell and Chloe Angell; 2 brothers, Ken Athey of Florida and Mike Athey (Carol) of China Grove; and numerous nieces and nephews.

The family would like to say a special thanks to Novant Health Cancer Institute, Kate B. Reynolds Hospice Home, all of her caregivers, and to her many special friends, as Pat would say, “you know who you are”.

A funeral service will be conducted at 12 p.m. Friday, Dec. 8 at Eaton Funeral Chapel with Rev. Joey Spry and Rev. Ricky Burcham officiating. Interment will follow in Joppa Cemetery. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service, at the funeral home.
