light has been dimmed in
the passing of Mrs. Charlotte

cancer survivor, but her
hardest fought battle was
with dementia.
Charlotte was born on
April 23, 1947, to Troy and
Dorothy Tubbs of the Conway
community. She was a
wife, mother, grandmother,
great grandmother, sister
and daughter, and her
family was her proudest
accomplishment. This was
evident in the past nine
days when her family constantly held vigil by her bedside.
Visitation was held November 3, 2016 at Farrar Funeral
Home in Farmerville. Services were at 10 a.m. on
November 4, 2016, at Conway Baptist Church with Bro.

writing poetry and sketching pictures. Charlotte was a
longtime member of Conway Baptist Church and she
had a beautiful voice.
