She was born to the late Lois Dunn Barbee and James Dorris Barbee, Sr. on February 22, 1945 in Knoxville, TN.
After graduating from Page Senior High School in Greensboro, NC, Linda attended Sullins College, then transferred to Guilford College where she met her future husband, George Rosser Carter, Jr. At the age of 31, Linda made the decision to return to college to finish her degree. In 1979, she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from Averett College.
Upon graduating, she served for 8 years as a Physical Education teacher in the Danville Public School System. Demonstrating her versatility, she later worked as a Real Estate Agent in Danville.

Eventually, they enjoyed making friends and experiencing other parts of the country as they lived in various communities, including Canton, OH; San Angelo, TX; Atlanta, GA; and, Fort Smith, AR. Finally, in 2002, they retired to Raleigh, NC.
Linda was an active member of a church in each of the places she lived, the longest membership being at Mount Vernon United Methodist, in Danville. Since 2003, her membership has been with Christ Baptist Church, Raleigh, where she was a charter member. In each community, she participated in and led groups with Community Bible Study, Bible Study Fellowship, and various other church groups and Sunday School classes.
Linda is survived by her son, George Rosser “Ross” Carter, III, his wife, Sarah (Gibsonville, NC); and, their two daughters Becca (Charlotte, NC), and Mary Catherine (Wilmington, NC). She is also survived by her daughter, Elizabeth “Liz” Carter Merritt, and her husband, Jeff (Raleigh, NC); and their two sons, Christopher (Raleigh, NC), and Cameron (Knoxville, TN). She also leaves sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, nephews, nieces, and cousins, all of whom she loves dearly.
