Commonly called "Miss Lillian," she is best known as the mother of former U.S. President, Jimmy Carter (1924), for her contribution to nursing in the state of Georgia and as a Peace Corps volunteer in India. She and her husband James Earl Carter (1894-1953), in addition to the former President, were the parents of Gloria Carter Spann, evangelist Ruth Carter Stapleton and Billy Carter.
