Charlotte was preceded in death by her parents Naoma Marie Norrie Crawford and Charles S. Crawford, Jr.
Parents Death: Charles Spurgeon Crawford Jr., B. 30 OCT 1924, Oklahoma, D. 5 SEP 1987, Las Vegas, Clark, Nevada. Naoma Marie Norrie Crawford, B. May 26, 1924, Enid, Garfield County, Oklahoma; D. March 15, 2012, Broken Arrow, Tulsa County, Oklahoma. Naoma and Charles had four children: Caryn, Charles, Charlotte, and Curtis.
Charlotte loved books, writing, traveling, English royalty, antiques, gardening and beautiful music. She watched Jeopardy with her husband Jack each day and joked that she could often win the game. Charlotte was, perhaps, the only stuttering tour guide in the world. She led hundreds of trips to places throughout Oklahoma and the world. As a tour guide for Dream Journeys, Charlotte continually educated her travelers with trivia of local areas and little known historical facts. But Charlotte was most proud of her family. Charlotte and Jack shared 47 years of marriage, often calling their story the greatest love story of all time. She was his “lambie.” Together, they hosted large, chaotic dinners for their family multiple times a month and loved cooking homemade cuisine such as “missy” potatoes, fried okra, and pies. Her grandchildren loved visiting her because they all knew that “Grams never says no,” leading to multiple ice cream treats, peanut butter sandwiches, and soda with each visit. The Thanksgiving holiday in her home always started with a recording of “Amazing Grace” played with bagpipes, celebrating her Scottish heritage, and a blessing for her family: “May God be with you” says one… “And also with you” says the other.
Memorial Service was 12:30 PM, Saturday, May 16th, Floral Haven Funeral Home Chapel, Broken Arrow.
