I met Mrs. Charlotte at numerous meetings of our local historical society meetings. She & my Mom (Cat Douthit) were longtime friends. I always admired her as a very attractive sweet southern lady who whom everyone adored. She was always so kind to her Aunt Margaret Jennings, one of Lincoln County’s finest retired teachers of all time. Their bond was obvious every time I was in their company. It was a real pleasure to have known Mrs. Charlotte & I send sympathy to her family. May God bless you.
I am very sorry that you have suffered this loss. It is hard to know just what to say when a loved one dies. Be assured that our loving Creator is aware of your loss and pain. Through His son, Christ Jesus, he has arranged to bring back to life, “all those in the memorial tombs.” (John 5:28,29) At that time, Rev. 21:4, says: “And he [God] will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Please accept my condolences for the loss of your beloved mother, grandma and friend. May God’s Word comfort you and your family.

I remember Charlotte very well as we discussed the Locker family research. We learned she was a very sweet, kind, humble and intelligent lady.
I was so blessed to have this lady as my aunt. She and my Uncle Robert were always so good to me and will always have a special place deep in my heart. Heaven became sweeter when she went through those gates. Much love to Bobby, Julie, Megan, Jason and Betty Lou.
Heaven has gained another angel. I will never forget Mrs. Charlotte’s kindness and friendship to my Mother when they were neighbors. My sincere sympathy at your loss.
Charlotte was a great friend to my mother, Mildred Ramsey. Sorry for your lost.
I had the privilege of working with Charlotte on the Heritage of Lincoln County book. She also provided much information on the Pickett family and her beloved aunt, Margaret Catherine Jennings, for publication in The Lincoln Lineage by the Lincoln County Genealogical Society.
Bob, Julie and family: Sorry to hear about Charlotte passing away. Always enjoyed Robert and Charlotte visiting at the Moore house (Lewis and Wilma Moore). Prayers for you and your family during this difficult time. God bless, Brent and Janice Moore Gregory
