Brianna Carter

Brianna Hope Carter of Sheridan, Arkansas was born December 17, 1997 in Malvern, Arkansas, the daughter of Brian and Toni Kelly Carter. She was a member of First Landmark Baptist Church in Sheridan, worked as a server, and attended Pulaski Tech. To describe Hope as being “full of life,” would definitely be an understatement. She had a huge heart, and a love for people that was truly amazing.

Among her talents was anything sports related, and make no mistake she was a competitor. From shooting pool and hunting, to playing soccer, and everything in-between, she played hard and enjoyed every minute of it. Anyone who knew Hope knew two things for sure, she loved and adored her family, and she had the most incredible, genuine, and contagious, smile that they’ve ever seen.

Hope died Sunday, January 6, 2019, in Maumelle, Arkansas as the result of an automobile accident at the age of 21.

She was preceded in death by her grandfather, Jim Kelly.
