Mrs. Carter was a 1936 graduate of Purdue University and a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma. She lived most of her adult life in Evansville and was an avid basketball fan of the Purple Aces, Boilermakers and the Pacers. She was a member of Evansville Methodist Temple. An avid bird lover, Georgianna was a tireless volunteer and fundraiser for Wesselman Nature Center from its inception until she moved to Carmel in 2002.

She was a charter member of the Rolling Hills Country Club, and loved playing golf, gardening and art and was a wonderful homemaker. Most of all she loved spending time with her family.

Born May 6, 1914, in Veedersburg, she was the daughter of George and Essie VanHoesen, both of whom preceded her in death. While attending Purdue, she met her late husband, Robert B. Carter, and they married in 1936.
