Roxie A. Carter, age 94 of Monroe, passed away on Monday, December 18, 2023, at ProMedica Regional Hospital of Monroe, after a brief illness.

Roxie was born July 21, 1929, at home in Speedwell (Clairborne County) Tennessee to Stephen and Pearl (Jones) Tinnel. She attended Bolinger in Speedwell. Later she worked at the Imperial Shirt Factory in Lafollette Tennessee.

They were together for 65 wonderful years, before John sadly passed away in 2020.
