May 19, 1948 - September 14, 2021

Angela Jansen Carter

Angela Jansen Carter passed away on Monday, September 14, 2021.  She was a devoted, and faithful wife, mother and grandmother.  

Angie was the daughter of Fredrick and Lenore Jansen, born in Kokomo, Indiana.  She was of the Catholic faith.  Angie grew up in Jacksonville, Florida where she was a member of the first graduating class of Wolfson High School. She was an excellent swimmer and was offered a scholarship for her talents.   Angie then went on to graduate from South Georgia College and relocated to Savannah, which she called home for over 50 years.  

Angie was happily in love, married to James (Jimmy) Carter for 32 years and together they shared 4 children in a blended family.  She will always be cherished and remembered by their children and spouses, Melanie Rushing Chadwick and David Buchanan, Frederick Rushing, Patrick and Tere Rushing, and Patricia Carter Spencer and James.  Angie was a loving grandmother to her grandchildren, Parker and Audrey Chadwick, Carter and Charles Spencer, Victoria and Jessica Rushing and Owens Rushing.  Angie will be forever in the hearts of her surviving siblings, Fredrick Jansen (Vicki) and Greg Jansen (Patty), Ella Rae Jansen and Julie Jansen.  She was preceded in death by brothers, Phillip Jansen and Jeff Jansen.  She was devoted to her many nieces and nephews and their families. 

Angie was proud and dedicated to her career as a banker.  She worked for C&S and Bank of America, retiring as a banking officer.  Angie continued her work with the Savannah community helping to open Sea Island Bank downtown.

Angie loved her family and traveling with Jimmy.  Some of her favorite past times were planning for family gatherings and spending time at their beautiful home, Isle of Hope. She treasured her friendships and golf cart rides on the Bluff and throughout the neighborhood.  

Graveside service will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, September 18, 2021 in Bonaventure Cemetery with Rev. Patrick O'Brien officiating.

Jimmy & Family, I worked with Angie at the Bank at 22 Bull Street in downtown Savannah, during the mid 1990s. She was a joy to know and work with. Angie was always ready to help and support everyone, especially her co-workers. Our customers loved her, and she loved them. She will be sorely missed. Praying for God’s peace and comfort for your family in the days ahead. With deepest sympathy, Nancy Harrison-Watson
