Constance “Connie” Carter

April 05, 1949 ‒ November 11, 2020

Delaware, Ohio

Constance “Connie” Carter, age 71, of Delaware, passed away at home on Wednesday, November 11, 2020.  She was born in Concord, California, on April 5, 1949, to Gene W. Carter and Mozelle K. Carter, both of whom preceded her in death.  Connie is survived by many dear friends and former co-workers.

Connie graduated from Ohio Wesleyan University and worked for many years as an Adult Protective Services case worker for Ohio Job and Family Services.  She also worked for the Helpline for Delaware and Morrow Counties, providing support and assistance to those who were in desperate need of help.  Connie had a soft spot in her heart for those who were elderly,  needy or different.  In fact, she was drawn to those who needed help.  She was a confirmed animal lover and provided a wonderful home to many dogs and cats during her life.

Those who were closest to Connie are planning a private farewell for her.  Snyder-Rodman Funeral Home has been entrusted with the arrangements.  In lieu of flowers, donations in Connie’s name are suggested to the Helpline for Delaware and Morrow Counties.  Please post any memories of Connie or condolences to

  • Im so sorry for all her loved ones and close friends your in our prayers. Connie has lived across the street from us for over 20 years. She was quite and kept to her self but was very friendly and always made sure she gave a polite wave to us. We live directly across the street so if there is anything we can do please dont hesitate to knock on the door we would love to help out in any way. Thoughts and prayers for her loved ones!!

  • Connie and I worked for Job and Family Services for many years. She was always fighting for any and all services her clients could have. She truly cared about their best interest. We also had lots of fun over the years at the agency. She was kind and funny. She will be missed.

  • My friend, can’t believe you are gone – so many enjoyable dinners at 1808, you were a political soulmate, fellow social worker, and a strong and proud person who made me laugh. You took such wonderful care of our kitties when we traveled. Lover of tennis, great procrastinator (did that dang shed every get built?), a person with integrity and a good heart – especially for the so many older folks you helped over your career including at HelpLine where I met you. I will miss you.

  • Connie, you made the best socks! i still have several pair you made that we traded for while we both worked for Helpline. You will be missed!!

  • Connie and I worked together for years at Helpline. She took my handwritten notes and transformed them into beautiful typed documents needed to have Helpline certified nationally to provide suicide prevention services. I will miss her. I will proudly wear the scarlet and gray socks she made me this Saturday when O.S.U. plays!
