Print Obituary   Home Page All Obituaries


Florine Carter was born February 11, 1938, in the small town Of Cheraw, Mississippi to the union of Hosea & Earnestine Carter.

As a youth she attended Friendship Elementary and graduated from Jefferson High School in Columbia, Mississippi.  Florine accepted her family’s Methodist religion as a child and belonged to St. Paul Methodist Church. Later in her adult years she began to fellowship with New Hope Baptist Church in Hammond, Indiana where she became a member & sang in the church choir.  Florine was known by the nickname “Nippy” to her close friends & family.  As a teen she relocated to Hammond, Indiana where she would start her life and fall in love.

At the young age of 17 Florine gave her hand in marriage to John Lee Frazier. Together they had four children & built a family.   She was employed by Hammond Community School Bus Services. 

Florine loved spending time with her grandchildren.  The days of her jokes & laughter will always be remembered.  Her unique bashful smile will always remain a staple in our minds as we keep her memory in our hearts.  She was never one to be too outspoken, but when she did feel the need she wouldn’t hold back or bite her tongue.  Always saying exactly what she meant and meaning exactly what she would say.

Florine went home to reside in heaven on September 5, 2021 under the love and company of her beloved daughter & many of her grandchildren.  She was preceded in death by her parents, Hosea Carter and Earnestine Carter; brother, Robert Carter (Corrine Carter); sister, Donna Faye Carter-Walker (Navlas Walker); granddaughter, Takisha Frazier; grandson, Herschel Jenkins; great-grandson, Wesley Clark Jr., and great-granddaughter, Shawprenice Clark.

Florine leaves to cherish her memory her daughter, Cynthia Frazier-Rowe; son, Alvin Frazier, Twins Edrick and Fredrick Frazier; brother, Jimmie Carter; sisters, Lavern Colbert (Johnny L Colbert), Margie Carter; youngest brother, Willie B. Carter (Brenda Carter); grandchildren, Latonya Rowe, Kenosha Rowe, Monique Rowe, Shanesha Rowe, Carla Frazier, Bernard Oakley, Kenya Oakley-Rowe, Nakita Jenkins and Leland Frazier; 23 great-grandchildren; 17 great-great-grandchildren and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
