Joy Wolf Carter, 91, passed away August 23, 2016. She was born in Los Angeles, CA to Sam and Austie Wolf on May 8, 1925. After moving to Chicago, IL she attended Chicago Public Schools and the University of Illinois graduating with a degree in Social Science. She met her husband of 70 years, the love of her life, Ronald M. Carter, Sr. at the University of Illinois.

Moving to Phoenix in 1952, Joy achieved prominence as a community leader, political activist and member of the Jewish community soon after arriving. As a proud mother, she is survived by her two sons, Craig and Ronald. ‘Nonnie’ was also beloved by six grandchildren, five great grandchildren and her cherished niece Carol Gross and husband Joe.
