Linda Reynolds Carter was born September 24, 1947 in Laurel to Benjamin Franklin Reynolds, Jr. and Ann Carol Cade Reynolds. There are no words to adequately describe Linda Reynolds Carter. She was an award winning journalist, a philanthropist, and a business owner. But she was also a wife, a mother, a sister, and a treasured grandmother. Linda started her journalism career as columnist for the Prentiss Headlight. To no one’s surprise, Linda quickly moved from that position to a reporter, and eventually served as the editor of the entire newspaper. While serving as editor of the paper, Linda and her husband Bill decided to open Take One Video in Prentiss, and remained sole owners until they eventually retired from ownership. Linda was also the first woman to ever run for alderman in Prentiss. In her spare time, Linda actively volunteered with many organizations, including the Mississippi Federation of Women’s Club, and the Prentiss Junior Civic League, where she served a term as President and as a Junior Ambassador at their statewide convention. One of Linda’s greatest philanthropic accomplishments was her leadership of a statewide campaign to screen all children for scoliosis. The number of children that were positively impacted by her efforts cannot be counted. She was also active in many ministries at Prentiss Baptist Church, including the Youth ministry as well as the Adult Choir ministry. Above all things, Linda was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. She was married to her childhood sweetheart, Bill Carter, for almost 54 years. She was a phenomenal mother to three boys, each of them being her proudest accomplishments. And anyone who knew Linda knew she was a very proud grandmother to three grandsons, Ricky Carter, Spencer Carter, and Cade Carter. Whenever she talked about any of the men in her life, she would grin and beam with a pride that can only come from the love of a mother and grandmother. She will be forever loved as we carry her memory with us always. She was preceded in death by her mother and father and 1 son, William Jesse Carter, III.  Mrs. Carter is survived by her husband of 54 years, William Jesse “Bill” Carter, Jr. of Prentiss; 2 sons, Allan Reynolds Carter (Pepper) of Madison and Dr. John Christopher Carter of Albany, GA; 3 grandsons, Ricky Lee Carter, Spencer Blake Carter and Cade Allan Carter; 1 sister, Merry Beth Tigert (Alan) of Indian Springs; as well has a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. Visitation will be at Saulters Funeral Home from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM Wednesday February 12, 2020 before the service.
