Charlotte Humphrey passed away at her Flournoy home on Sunday, Oct. 12, 2008. She was 80.
She was born on Dec. 4, 1927, in the Flournoy-Paskenta area to Hugh and Neva Luce and was raised on the family ranch in Flournoy.
Upon graduation from high school, she began working for the United States Forest Service in Paskenta and with Crane Mills. She married Fred Humphrey on Dec. 6, 1947. They continued ranching in the Flournoy-Paskenta area.
Charlotte was always proud of the cattle produced on the ranch, especially when steers were entered at various fairs and jackpots. Many of which made the championship drive not only locally, but throughout the state.
Charlotte was quite active in the Flournoy 4-H Club and served as the community leader, and she enjoyed teaching cooking to children. Her grandchildren enjoyed helping Grandma make taffy, divinity and penuche. She was always delighted to furnish divinity for the fall auction to benefit the Paskenta Community Hall. She also enjoyed the time served as director and president of the Tehama County Farm Bureau.
As an avid rodeo fan, Charlotte, along with family and friends, has attended the National Finals Rodeo after it moved to Las Vegas, Nev. from Oklahoma City, Okla.
