Charlotte Boltin Conner, 88, of Columbus, Georgia, passed away on March 14, 2019 with her sweetheart of 62 years, Wiley Coleman Conner, Jr, by her side.

Charlotte was born in Norway, South Carolina, on August 3, 1930 to Felix and Leta Boltin. She had three sisters: Phyllis, Wanda, and Paula.

Charlotte was an active member of First Baptist Church for almost 50 years. After retiring from a career in Civil Service for the Federal Government spanning 42 years, Charlotte and Wiley spent their time traveling in Europe, the United States and Canada. Charlotte devoted countless hours to her passion for gardening, which is evident if anyone has seen the flowers in her yard. She and her sweetheart attracted bluebirds to the garden, worked on projects around the house, visited estate sales, explored Georgia and spent much of their time with family and friends.

She is survived by her husband, Wiley, her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren along with her sister, Paula Carriker. Her loving children are Frances Bilon (David), Chip Conner, Carol Hays (Mike), and Angie Mallard (Wilson). Grandchildren are Geoffrey Winant, Justin Winant (Kristy), Heather Hays, Erin Klein (Michael), Thomas Stockman, Ansley Baker (Thomas), Sara Stockman, Cole Conner, Hannah Mallard and Andrew Mallard. Great grandchildren are Alexander Winant, Johanna Winant, Quinn Winant, Kelsey Konecsny, Cameron Stuart, Aveline Klimowicz, and Leighton Baker.

A memorial service will be held at 11:00, Monday, March 18, 2019 in the Sanctuary at First Baptist Church in Columbus, Georgia. The family will receive visitors immediately following the service. A private family interment service, will be announced at a later date, for the Ft. Benning Main Post Cemetery.

The family wishes to thank all that have called, sent cards, visited with her at home and in the hospital and lifted up prayers during recent times. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the First Baptist Church of Columbus - Local Missions Ministries. Fond memories and condolences may be shared at www.shcolumbus.com.

Once you met Charlotte, you never forgot her. She had such a wonderful way about her: so full of love, of life, of people, of places, and of activities that brought her joy! She spread the joy around! It brushed off on me. I first met her when she became a member of Britt David Pottery Studio where she could try her hands (literally) at making pots, which she did with great enthusiasm! At the time I was Director of this Columbus Parks and Recreation Facility. I don't remember the year she came, but it was before the year 2000, because I retired myself that year. But before that I began to see Charlotte everywhere. My husband and I always bought season tickets to the Springer, the Symphony, etc. and there I would see Charlotte, and met Wiley, and introduced my husband, Joe. We never spent a lot of time together, but Charlotte and I were both on Face Book, and as Friends, got to know each other there. Charlotte was a wonderful person, who spread joy all around herself.

Charlotte was such a lovely person, inside and out. She loved the Lord, loved her church, loved her family, loved her friends and loved her garden. She was loved by everyone. I will truly miss her. Wiley, you, your children and their families will be in my prayers.

Ms. Charlotte, I never had the pleasure of knowing you, but I do know your son Chip who is one of the kindest most generous men I know. He has been a dear friend to me for years and helped me find my way through a difficult transition in my career. Mothers often share their gifts with their children and I can imagine your love, passion and kindness you showed to so many has helped make Chip the man he is today. Thank you for sharing your gifts with the world. You will be loved and missed until the day comes for your friends and family to reunite with you in our heavenly fathers kingdom. Peace be to you and your family.
