Mrs. Sarah Flewellen Carter, 97, a long time resident of Eufaula, died peacefully Tuesday, July 24.
The last 14 years of her life Mrs. Carter resided at Oak Park Retirement Home in Auburn. She was the devoted wife of the late O.B. (Burnette) Carter Sr. for 60 years until the time of his death in 1994. O.B. Carter was the former superintendent of the Eufaula City Schools.
Born on July 20, 1915, Sarah was the daughter of the late Louise Sparks Flewellen and Robert Hardeway Flewellen and the niece of former Alabama Governor Chauncey Sparks.

Sarah was a member of the First Baptist Church where she taught Sunday school and was active in the Women's Missionary Society. She served her community as a member of the Christ Child Circle.
