Mrs. Charlene Ogletree

Published 3:54 pm Tuesday, December 28, 2021

Mrs. Charlene Ogletree was born Nov. 16, 1952, to the late J.D. Dowdell and Evelena Scott in LaFayette. On Dec. 23, 2021, she departed this life and ascended into eternity.

Charlene, as she was known by most, accepted Christ at an early age and united with Bethlehem Baptist Church in West Point. She faithfully served as an usher, missionary board and sang in the choir. Charlene was a bright spark in this world and will be deeply missed by many. Her warm demeanor was infectious and her laugh a comfort to the ear.

She was employed with Lanett Mill, Home Care Nursing, and was a devoted foster parent in Troup County.
