Carla McCants, age 56, of Madison, passed away peacefully, Thursday, January 5 2017 following a short illness.

Carla was born on November 26, 1960 in Detroit Michigan to the late Forest and Catherine (Raines) McCants.

What made Carla so special was she really loved the people she came in contact with. After getting her GED she worked for several manufacturing companies like Webcrafters, and Oscar Mayer. She also volunteered at several food pantries, was a member of the South Side Neighborhood Center, was one of the Women of Worthington, and helped out at the Goodman Center. She was a member of S.S. Morris Church and sang in the choir.

Carla is survived by her boyfriend of 17 years, Jackie Sparkman of Chicago, IL; siblings, Mujib (Ramona) Hasan of Atlanta GA, Phillip, Lester, Darryl, and Donald (Brenda Williams) McCants of Madison; sister-in-law, Deborah McCants. She is further survived her aunt, Louise Galloway, uncles, cousins and many nieces and nephews who loved her dearly and were a joy in her life.

The countless friends Carla has made over the years will prove that she will be a missing part of our world's landscape.

Carla was preceded in death by her parents; siblings Abe McCants, Wendy and Dennis Orr, Donald Ray and Dustin McCants.

Funeral Services will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, January 14, 2017 at, the church where Carla left an unforgettable presence, S. S. Morris AME Church at 3511 Milwaukee Street, Madison. A repass will follow.
