Over the years, she was a dedicated and faithful servant in her church and to her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. She was a member of the First Pentecostal Church.

Carstarphen and her husband Bob of Augusta, GA; three grandchildren, Robin Clark Faulkner and her husband Steve of Trenton, SC; Nathan A.

Pallbearers will be Harold Redd, Dr. Alton Walker, Harold Crawford, Rev. John Biggs, Rev. Mark Maddox, Rev. Willie R. Scott, Rick Chavous, and William McKinney.
