Charlotte Jean Fowler Freeland, 92, of Piedmont, Oklahoma, passed Sunday, November 5, 2023.
Charlotte was born to Emmet and Opal (King) Fowler, July 6, 1931, in Clarksville, West Virginia. She graduated class Valedictorian from Baker High School in 1949. She married Joseph Ronald Freeland, in 1951, at Mobile, Alabama. Together they raised five (5) children.
She is survived by four (4) children: Joseph Ronald Freeland, Jr. (Sandra), Linda Ann Freeland, Thomas Jay Freeland (Donna), and Cinda Jean Freeland Meadors (Mark), brother, John Jay Fowler, of Frederick, Md., 10 grandchildren, 16 great grandchildren, and several nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents, son Robert Lee Freeland, brother Emmet Fowler, Jr., sister Judith Burkett, sister-in-law Robena Fowler, sister-in-law Judy Fowler, and niece Gail Fowler.
Charlotte retired early from civil service in 1990 to spend quality time with her grandchildren; she was passionate about affecting the most positive change in people. She had a profound love of family and friends, and never met a stranger.
For many years, she was an avid square dancer and bowler. She loved to travel, including trips to Alaska and Hawaii, but most of all, she cherished being surrounded by and loving on her family.
She was a member of First Baptist Church of Piedmont, where she faithfully served the Lord and enjoyed many activities and trips with the JOY group.
