Charlotte Jo (Harris) OsborneAugust 30, 1941 ~ April 1, 2017 (age 75)
Charlotte Jo (Harris) Osborne was born August 30, 1941 in Oklahoma City to Charles Paul and Willetta Vivian (Humphrey) Harris. She passed away in Chandler at the age of 75. She died as quietly as she lived. No fuss, no bother, she just slipped away. Her unexpected death has left a hurt that cannot be soothed, and an emptiness that cannot be filled. Charlotte was a unique and one of a kind lady. She had a marvelous sense of humor, a quick wit, and a tender and generous heart.
Charlotte was a master of many trades, and her work ethic was admired and respected by her employers and coworkers. Her experiences were vast, and she took pride in the Oklahoma National Guard, in which she served. She was a long-time employee of NAICO, and Wal-Mart, both in Chandler. She never met a stranger, kept her hurts and feelings to herself and appeared carefree to the world. Though tiny in stature, her shoulders were broad, always ready and willing to listen to others who needed emotional encouragement. She was a terrific cook and her sewing skills were second to none. You name it, she could do it, or research how-to manuals until she mastered the skill. She loved antiques and antique research, and often joked that she was an antique herself. Charlotte’s blue eyes were so startlingly beautiful that when one approached her in greeting, their train of thought was lost in the beauty and depth of her eyes. Charlotte’s family and friends are grieving, trying to grasp the tragedy of her untimely death while facing a world without her. She has traveled many roads and had more to go; however, she now has a new journey, one that she has made alone.
Charlotte is preceded in death by her parents; maternal grandmother, Charlotte Munro; brothers, Charles, Patrick, and John Charles; survivors include, her beloved husband, Nolan; daughters, Debra, and Lecia; granddaughters, Emerald, Ashley, and Madison; sisters, Johnice Autrey, Sharon Mack; along with numerous nieces, nephews, extended family and many friends.
A memorial service will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 8, 2017 at the First Baptist Church in Davenport. Arrangements are under the direction of Lehman Funeral Home of Wellston.
