Charlcye Barrett was born Charlcye Joy Cammack in Sabine County, Texas on October 8, 1932. Her parents were Herman and Emma Cammack. She was the eldest of three (Charlcye, Max, and Gay). Their family attended Gravel Hill Baptist Church in Hemphill, Texas.

After graduating from Hemphill High School, Charlcye married the love of her life, Billy Barrett. They moved to El Paso where Billy was in the service, but eventually landed in Pasadena, Texas where they would start their family. They had two boys, Doug and Don. Charlcye was a faithful Christian mother who raised the boys in church at Thomas Avenue Baptist Church (later renamed Monument Baptist Church). She remained an active member of the church until her passing.

After retiring from State Farm Insurance, she and Billy traveled the country in their motorhome. They managed to see all of the states multiple times and they relished the thought of long trips together. When they were home, she devoted her time to her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Charlcye will be remembered for her sweet nature, quiet strength, and a heart of gold.

Charlcye was proceeded in death by her husband, Billy Barrett; father and mother, Herman and Emma Cammack; and her sister, Gay Cammack Van Valkenburg. She is survived by her sons Doug Barrett and wife, Donnis, and Don Barrett and wife, Debbie; her grandchildren, Jason Barrett, Charlsa Barrett, Brandon Barrett, and Brooke Barrett; two great grandchildren, Barrett Crow and Zoie Chesser. Charlcye also leaves behind her brother, Max Cammack; and many nieces and nephews.

Grandma, you never blinked an eye or hesitated to call everyone a grandchild. I met you as a teen but had no idea the gifts you had in store for me. Such a sweet lady, our talks that helped me into womanhood and a Christian at that. I love the extra help you gave me when all seemed lost. You said nope. It would be a new season in my life. And it was. You gave me hope, love and a future. Much like Jesus would do. I love you for that. And you were right. You were the sweetest person I've ever met. Thank you for what you gave to my family. Love you always. See you soon.
Sandy.

I remember Mrs. Barrett throughout the 60s when they were our neighbors on Suiterway. We would play with Doug & Don, back & forth between our houses and she was always a pleasant, kind motherly figure. I am so sorry for your loss and know that she rests eternal now.
