Charlotte was born August 23, 1941 to Wilmer and Martha Dykes of Cochran, GA. She met the love of her life, Bobby, while attending Middle GA College. They married and had three children, Jan, Jimmy, and Suzanne. After making Mississippi their home in 1976, Charlotte went to work for USF&G as a personal lines underwriter until her retirement. She was an active member of Eastside Baptist Church, serving as Sunday school teacher and organist until her memory loss would no longer allow it.
She is survived by her daughters, Jan Lewis (Joe) and Suzanne Walters (Mark); son, Jimmy Cosper (Penny); grandchildren, Amy Cosper, Quincy Cosper, Jillian Walters, Josie Walters, Casey Lewis, and Christopher Lewis; sister, Angela Stephens; brothers, Quincy Dykes (Phyllis) and Wilmer Dykes (Barbara); and a host of nieces, nephews, and cousins.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 49 years, Bobby; parents, Wilmer and Martha Dykes; and nephew, Josh Dykes.
The family appreciates greatly the loving care given by Riggs Manor and Hospice Ministries.
