Mrs. Connie T. Jeter Worthy, 65, of 19 Junction Court, Greenville, SC joined hands with the Master and peacefully transitioned to her heavenly home on Thursday evening, October 7, 2021 at Prisma Health Greenville Memorial in Greenville, SC. Affectionately called ‘Baybelle’ by her family, Connie was a native of Chester County, SC. She was the widow of Dwight “Brick” Worthy and the daughter of the late Carlson Jeter, Jr. and Frances Thompson Jeter.

Connie was a member of Mount Hopewell Baptist Church in Sharon, SC for over 50 years and attended Rock of Ages Baptist Church in Greenville, SC. She was a 1973 graduate of Chester High School in Chester, SC and a 1977 graduate of Saint Augustine’s University in Raleigh, NC. She has been an educator for 44 years and was currently employed with SHARE Head Start as a Center Manager/Lead Teacher for the past 30 years. She was very dedicated and committed to Head Start and serving its children and families. Her co-workers referred to her as a kind and loving spirit with a friendly and sweet soul.

Baybelle loved her family. She often shared stories of what her grandchildren were up to as well as their accomplishments. She was very dedicated to the Thompson and Worthy families. She never missed a family function and always volunteered her assistance in any way that was needed. She also became a mother-like figure to many of her daughters’ friends who still call her Ma to this day.

In addition to her husband and parents, she was preceded in death by two daughters, Spc. Zandra T. “Nicey” Worthy-Walker and Katrina Worthy; a brother, Thomas F. Thompson; and a sister Grace A. Jeter.

She is survived by three daughters, Charlita Worthy (Pete Calhoun) of Greenville, SC, Yolanda Worthy (Marcus Mack) of Fountain Inn, SC, and Amber Worthy of Greenville, SC; her favorite grandson D’Kari Worthy, student at Clemson University; her talented grand-divas Kaliyah Worthy, Kiara Hendrix, Christina Hendrix and Trinity Marshall all of Greenville, SC.; brothers Lenward (Brenda) Thompson of Rock Hill, SC and Jimmy Jeter of Sharon, SC; sisters Major Phoebe A.
