Wanda Adams Carpenter was born on Aug. 10, 1956, in Houma. She departed this life on June 8, 2021, at her home in Angie, surrounded by her children and husband.

She is survived by her husband of 47 years, Michael “Frank” Carpenter; son, Michael Carpenter; two daughters, Lena Carpenter Hunt of Venice, and Rhiannon and husband Ryan Leslie of Varnado; grandchildren, Mathison “Matt” Stogner, Tatum Hunt, Ethan Hunt, Noah Hunt and his fiancé Madison; mother, Julia “T-Lou” Naquin Adams of Chauvin; brothers, Ricky Adams and wife Susan of Lafayette, Cord Adams Sr. and wife Sheila of Chauvin, Michael Adams and wife Suzette of Houma, and Troy Adams and wife Julie of Houma; as well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her father, Alcide Adams Jr.; sister, Elizabeth Gaubert; nephew, Cord “Pye” Adams Jr.; brother-in-law, John Carpenter; and nephew, William Carpenter.

Wanda enjoyed playing in the garden, spending time with her husband, children and her dog B.B. girl, and driving to Houma to visit her family, especially if she got to eat some seafood while she was down there. She was known by a lot of people from her time managing Burger King in Bogalusa. She was known to be a kind and humble person. She was a very loving wife, mother and grandmother who will be so missed.

Special thanks to Roshundra Goss Brumfield, R.N. and Mary Perkins, C.N.A with Traditions Hospice, who were wonderful at providing comfort to her and her family during this process.

A celebration of her life will be held Saturday, July 10, at First Missionary Baptist Church in Varnado, starting at 10 a.m., with Bro. Kelly Penton officiating the service.
