Charlotte Sue (Rosson) Francis
(January 23, 1938 - September 8, 2009)
Our dearly loved wife, mother, and grandmother, also lovingly known as "Nana" Charlotte Sue Rosson Francis passed away Tuesday, September 8th at Palestine Regional Medical Center. She brought delight, joy and warmth to everyone who knew her. Her sense of humor and ready welcome always made friends feel at ease and happy in her presence. Her generous heart filled her home with unconditional love. Charlotte was born in Palestine, TX. in 1938, a beloved only child to Clarence Rosson and Alma Fortson Rosson. She met her future husband at the age of 12, while playing football in the lot next to her house. When they graduated from high school, Charlotte went to college and Jerry to the Army. While stationed in Germany, Jerry had his mother deliver his proposal and engagement ring to Charlotte. The year she received her teaching degree from Stephen F. Austin in 1958 was the year she married the love of her life. She and Jerry celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in 2008 in a joyous celebration with family and friends. She taught high school for 25 years until her retirement in 1997 after touching so many lives. She stayed in touch with many friends and students she met while teaching in the Needville and Neches schools. Charlotte was preceded in death by her father and mother. She leaves behind those she loved best, her husband Jerry Francis, her children, Lisa Francis Zator of Palestine, Leslie Francis Chase and husband Scot of Bellaire and Matthew Rosson Francis of Livingston, her grandchildren Frank Zator and Jerry Zator and wife Tonya all of Palestine, Austin Chase, Sidney Chase, and Chance Chase, her great grandsons Travis Zator and Trevor Zator and many dear friends. She leaves her husband and family knowing they were truly loved. A memorial celebrating her life will be held on Saturday, September 12th at 3:00 P.M. at Bailey & Foster Chapel, Palestine. Your love never failed or faltered. You made each of us feel special and dearly loved. You kept us in line, gave us "The Look", warned us when we were about to make a mistake, but never once, did you ever say I Told You So, even when we deserved it. Your laughter and smile will never leave our memories, and we will love you forever.
