Rosalynn and Jimmy Carter mark quiet New Year’s Eve in Georgia


The naval officer turned peanut farmer, turned governor, turned president, turned Nobel Peace Prize winner and oldest living former president celebrated his 97th birthday Oct. 1. A couple of months earlier on Aug. 18, the former first lady — who has blazed her own trail through her advocacy for causes such as mental health, refugee welfare, immunizations, voting rights, caregivers and housing — turned 94.

As part of their memorable 2021, on July 7 the couple celebrated their 75th wedding anniversary with a star-studded party featuring Bill and Hillary Clinton, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, former Ambassador Andrew Young, country music stars Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood and media mogul Ted Turner.
