FCA Is Deeply Saddened by the News of Rosalynn Carter’s Passing
November 20, 2023
The FCA team mourns the passing of Rosalynn Carter, who was a wonderful advocate for many “unseen” causes: mental health, low-income housing, disease eradication, and election monitoring, to name a few.
Mrs. Carter was also an early and strong advocate for unpaid family caregivers, decades before it was recognized as a key issue in health and social services. FCA was proud to receive an award recognition from the Rosalynn Carter Institute in the 1980’s for our work in California and beyond.
We had the pleasure of working on many committees and advisories with the former First Lady. Mrs. Carter was smart, compassionate, practical and lived her values every single day. We valued her constant consideration of family caregivers across the country. We will miss her presence in the field.
We owe Mrs. Carter deep gratitude for her service.
