Charlotte Bernice Kelsey, 72, passed quietly from this life and into eternity with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on the evening of November 28, 2020. Charlotte was born February 16, 1948 in Wichita Falls, TX to Jack and Bernice (Cross) Kelsey, she grew up the third of five children. She graduated from Central High, Marlow, OK in 1966 and was voted most popular in both her junior and senior years. She attended Draughon’s Business College in Oklahoma where she excelled in typing and shorthand, then married Joe Altom on June 20, 1969. Charlotte became the loving mother of two children and spent the rest of her life caring for and about them. She was always willing to assist and help her kids. Her desire was to be a mother and home-maker, but she worked many secretarial and clerk jobs to make ends meet over the course of her working career. In the early 1970’s she became a born-again Christian and began a 45+ year relationship with Christ and raised her children to know that there was a God in Heaven that loved them. She enjoyed being a member of the Word of Faith Church Choir for a time, and later also worked several years as a phone prayer minister for Christian ministries in the DFW area. Charlotte loved Christmas, bison, and growing roses. Inside her home was decorated with many bison pictures and figurines, and she was content to have her Christmas tree up all year long. Outside, she always had many rose bushes planted around her yard and she spent her free time pruning and fussing over them. She is survived by her brother Melvin and wife Marsha of Wichita Falls, TX; half-brother Jimmy of Houston, TX; sister Jodie of Wichita Falls, TX; children Lana Kelsey of Watauga, TX; Clifton and wife Georgia of Keller, TX. She was a grandmother to Trey, Tyler, Landon, Haydon, Savanna, Logan, Aubrey and Will. She became a Great-grandmother to Dakota days before her death. Charlotte lived a simple life and really did not enjoy ceremony or production, so in accordance with her wishes there will be no funeral service, she will be cremated and her ashes scattered “somewhere there are Buffalo”.
