Advanced Planning Coordinator
Teri Morris has been in the funeral industry since 1998, starting out as an Administrative Assistant. In 2003 she was licensed in North Carolina as a Funeral Director and several years later after moving to Charleston, South Carolina she became licensed in SC as well.
Teri has a heart to serve those who grieve. In 2012, her youngest son, Aaron died unexpectedly at the age of 25. After several months of grieving, Teri became interested in helping people to process their grief. She began her training as a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist and was certified in 2013. In 2019 a refresher course in Grief Recovery brought a desire to change her focus from an active funeral director to Advanced Planning. With this re-structuring in her career, Teri can focus on educating and serving families that are planning final disposition before the need arises, and help families ease the burdens of grief left that will certainly touch their loved ones at the time death occurs.
Teri has an extensive history serving families as they make arrangements. She has been privileged to be the funeral director of choice for Mrs. Ruth Graham, the wife of Billy Graham. She worked with the Graham family for more than two years to arrange a dignified and respectful funeral service and burial for a family, community, state and world that would express all of the love that was felt for this gracious lady.
Please call Carpenter-Porter Funeral Home and meet Teri and let her help you and your family plan for the future. Your family will be grateful.
Teri is the mother of Lindsey, who is married to Xavier and Seth, who is married to Kelly. She has five grandchildren; Jasmine, Dominique, Olivier, Abram and Reynolds. She loves to cook, garden, spend time at the beach and also does grief ministry for her church.
