Carla Anne Carter Obituary
Carter, Carla Anne



Carla Anne Carter passed away peacefully at home on February 3, 2016. She was born April 20, 1960, in Lexington Park, MD, and raised by wolves in Houston. Carla joined the US Navy in 1979 and served for 17 years. She was stationed in Italy, Puerto Rico, and Japan, but her favorite assignment was the five years she spent as an arms control inspector/interpreter under the US/Soviet nuclear weapons treaties. Carla was the first US Navy enlisted woman to serve on an arms control inspection team. In that role, she traveled to Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Ukraine. She also served on a humanitarian mission to the Republic of Georgia. She later attended the University of San Francisco School of Law and worked as a federal government attorney until retiring in 2011.

Carla would like to be remembered as wicked smart, killer funny and kind to animals. She loved cats, especially Kashmir; the three-time World Series Champion San Francisco Giants; liberal politics; art and other beautiful things. She will be missed by many in CA, NM, PA and MA.

In lieu of flowers, donations to New Mexico Animal Humane, SF Giants Community Fund, or Mercy Corps International.
