Charlotte Carol Saxton

October 15, 1939 — July 13, 2023


Charlotte Carol Saxton took the hand of her Lord and Savior and walked through the pearly gates of Heaven on Thursday, July 13, 2023. She was 83 years old. The family will receive friends for visitation from 10:00 a.m.- 12:00 p.m. on Thursday, July 20, 2023, at Chancellor Funeral Home in Florence, MS.

Charlotte was born on October 15, 1939, to Artis and Charlotte Ethridge in Isola, MS. She worked for Winn Dixie as a customer service representative. She was long time resident of the Florence community where she was a faithful member of Quest Community Church. She loved her church and church family, and she loved the Lord. She was a sweet woman with a servant’s heart. Faithful, hard-working woman who was a salt of the Earth kind of Lady. She was a persistent person who enjoyed plants.  She had a green thumb.  She will be missed by all.
