Carrie Lee Stukes Richardson was born July 2, 1916, in Wilmington, North Carolina. She was the daughter of the late Elliot and Susan Stukes. On Tuesday, January 14, 2020, after living 103 glorious years upon this earth, in a whisper, God called “Mrs. Carrie” to rest in His loving arms.

In her early childhood, she was educated in the public schools of Clarendon County. At an early age, she gave her life to Christ and she joined Historic Liberty Hill AME Church. She later met the love of her life, the late Mr. Samuel Richardson. Within that union, a beautiful daughter, the Late Mrs. Daisy Lee Morrow, was born. In addition to her parental daughter, she raised the late Mrs. Susan W. Gunn as her own.

“Seven”, as she was so affectionately known by, had the hands of an army gardening, farming, fishing, and sewing, were her thing. You name it, she did it! She cooked for two but fed many. She was known for her delicious “chow-chow”. There was not a task too big or too small she could not handle.

Carrie was loved by many and will be missed by all. She leaves to cherish the memories of her glorious life to three special grandchildren — Sameerah Robinson, Sierrah Singleton and C.J. Torres, of the home. Two special nieces, Mrs. Mozell Ragin and Mrs. Margorie Carter, both of Summerton, SC; a special nephew, Joe “Moda” Lawson of Summerton, SC; a special great-niece, Mrs. Hilda Robinson of Summerton, SC; a special great-grandson, James Gunn, III; a host of grands, great-grands, great-great grands, nieces, nephews, friends and family.
