Charlotte was born June 14, 1940 in Gordo, Alabama to the late Leonard Dwight Housel, Sr. and Lottie Elledge Housel. She was a member of Reform First United Methodist Church and was very active in the Hillside United Methodist Church in Woodstock, Ga. Charlotte was a retired educator and high school guidance counselor for over 30 years having worked at Gordo High School and Aliceville High School. This world is a better place because she lived, and because of the way she lived. She instilled in her family a sense of faith and a belief that the best thing you could do in this world was to love and help others. Her favorite book of the Bible was the Book of James. She believed in a faith backed by good works, and she lived that kind of life. Honorary pallbearers are past and present students of Aliceville High School and Gordo High School. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials to Gordo High School, 630 4th Street NW, Gordo, AL 35466 or Aliceville High School, 417 3rd Street SE, Aliceville, AL 35442.
