Charlotte Crawford

(Continued)

NORMAN —

She attended Trinity Baptist, then Bethel Baptist churches during her repeated relocations to Norman. She loved the Lord.

She was preceded in death by her mother, whom she continued to miss from the time she was four years old, until her own death; her brother whom she had the fondest of childhood memories with; her father whom she loved dearly; and her stepmother Netta Faye Koen, whom she grew to love and respect as her own mother.

Charlotte is survived by her son, Scott Crawford, and his children of Murphy, TX; her daughter, Kendra Crawford-Gogick, and son-in-law, John Gogick, both of Georgia; her granddaughter, Chelsea Crawford and her family, also of Georgia. Charlotte had two children, seven grandchildren and four great-grandchildren, all of whom she was proud of and loved very much.

She was the 'eternal optimist,' as she never gave up on herself or anyone in her life. She may have seen the world differently than they, but she was capable of accepting that everyone sees things through different eyes. She had a fabulous sense of humor that was only subtle when compared to her caring.

As she wished, memorial services were held in the company of her horses that loved her unconditionally, and she them.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Bethel Baptist Church building fund or the Oklahoma Department of Rehabilitation Services, Visual Services in Oklahoma City.

Services are entrusted to Primrose Funeral Service. For more information or leave condolences, please visit primrosefuneralservice.com.
