Charlotte loved gardening, reading, and cooking. She grew both flowers and vegetables and worked in her garden until recently. Not even the use of crutches stopped Charlotte from growing things in her beloved garden. She provided loving care to generations of children in her home. Charlotte had an incredible faith and Hanover Baptist was a big part of her life. Above all, however, Charlotte adored her family. The love she gave endures. She will be deeply missed.
Left behind to cherish Charlotte’s memory are her great-grandchildren: Travis Wesley Seager and Savannah Seager Shropshire (Weston); her brother Lynn Bandy; her granddaughter-in-law Renee Seager; her nephew and friend Rondell Eller; her friend Bonnie Thompson and many other dear friends and relatives.

Seager; her beloved grandson Kenneth Wesley Seager; and her brothers William Samuel Bandy and Alvin York Bandy.
