MURRELLS INLET—Barbara L. “Bobbie” Carpenter, 95, beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great- grandmother, passed on to her eternal resting place June 18 at her residence.

She is survived by her loving husband, William F. Carpenter, Lt. Col. U.S. Army, Retired; children Janice (Damase) Cyr, Donald, Randall and his wife Trina, and family members Patricia and Laura.

She was predeceased by sister Dorothy.

“GiGi” took great joy in her 14 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren.

She was the classic homemaker, devoted to her husband of 73 years and recently enjoyed the celebration of her anniversary on June 15, 2019.

She was born in Hartford, Connecticut, in 1923, daughter of the late Frederick and Ida (Klatte) Links.

Bobbie and Bill retired to Myrtle Beach in 2001. Prior to their retirement, she supported Bill in his many positions in many divisions with the Connecticut Free Masons. She will always be remembered for the wonderful ladies tour she organized to the Shriners Hospital for Children in Massachusetts. She was truly a positive light in our world. Many will remember her for her kind heart, sense of humor and unforgettable laugh.

A memorial service was held June 24 at First Presbyterian Church of Myrtle Beach.

The family requests memorials to Crescent Hospice, 3959 US-17 Bypass, Suite D, Murrells Inlet, SC 29576.
