Alice Edith Taylor Walker Carter, 92, departed this life during her sleep on July 24, 2018 at Carroll Manor Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, Washington, DC. She was born August 22, 1925 in Warrenton, Virginia, to the late Joseph and Rosa Fitzhugh Taylor. She was the seventh of ten children, all of whom preceded her in death. She also was preceded in death by two husbands: Charles Walker and James Carter respectively.
Alice spent her early years in Warrenton and completed her education at Rosenwald School. For many years she worked as a press operator at Fauquier Laundry. During her latter years she was employed in Washington, DC as a domestic worker until retirement.
Alice loved spending time with family and looking at her many volumes of family photos. She enjoyed reading the scriptures and serving at her church. She was a member of Holy Temple Church of the Lord Jesus Christ in Washington, DC, where she attended faithfully until her health declined.
To cherish her memory, she leaves a special friend and companion, Thomas Moore; a devoted niece, Deborah Reynolds; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Graveside services will be held on Wednesday, August 1, 2018, 12 PM, at Warrenton Cemetery. Rev. Phillip Lewis will officiate.

Dear family members I would like to offer my deepest sympathy. I know how hard it is losing a love one because like yourself I lost love ones as well. Isaiah 25 8 Says He will actually swallow up death forever. Which is comforting to know. For more information about hope for the dead love ones please go to www.jw.org. Take care and have a nice day. And once again you have my deepest sympathy. Love Elton.
