Carrie Lee Brown Whack was born in 1933 on July 11th in Clarendon County, SC. She was the youngest of eight born to the late Peter McKiever and Annie Brown. At a young age she accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as her personal savior at St. John Baptist Church in Greeleyville, SC and was educated in the Williamsburg Public school system. On December 22, 1947, she joined in Holy Matrimony to the late Steve Jake Whack. Their union was blessed with fourteen children (9 girls and 5 boys). She moved to North Charleston with her husband and family and became a devout member of Ashley Baptist Church. She later moved her membership to Promiseland Missionary Baptist Church where she served faithfully as a member on the Missionary Board, choir, and later served as the church mother until her time of departure. Carrie loved her family, knew no stranger, and loved to sing and witness for the Lord. She instilled her values of faith and the word of God in every conversation that she engaged in. On the evening of Wednesday, August 31st, surrounded by her family and loved ones, the Lord called her home.
