CHARLOTTE YVONNE JONES was the first child born to Lillian B. Moton and Eddie Moton on December 23, 1938 in Texarkana, TX. The family moved to Tyler, TX where she spent her formative years and later moved to San Diego, CA.
Charlotte gave her life to Christ early as a child in the Church of the Living God. Charlotte attended Lincoln High School where she enjoyed participating in the Literary Club and developed a love for reading. Her education also included training at the University of California, Los Angeles where she became a Registered Nurse. After graduation, she worked in a trauma unit for over two years. She went on to become a Charge Nurse at several skilled nursing facilities in San Diego.
Charlotte loved the Lord with all her heart and worked diligently for Him at the 38th Street Church of Christ where she was fondly referred to as "Auntie Char". She also worked enthusiastically with the mature ladies’ group.
Charlotte enjoyed mentoring young people. Her ministry, “Charlotte's Web”, touched many young people over the years. She taught children the importance of living a life pleasing to God. She was especially gifted at helping children memorize bible verses. She used her love of calligraphy in her mail ministry to minister to children and adults alike. She was known for always remembering and recognizing birthdays and her sweet demeanor.
Charlotte learned to play the piano during childhood, but one of her favorite pastimes was journaling. She loved writing, reflecting, and scrapbooking. This, and enjoying delicious desserts, was her favorite form of self-care.
Charlotte departed this life on Sunday, October 11, 2020. She was preceded in death by her mother and father, Lillian and Eddie Moton; her sister, Sharon Jones; and her nephew, Haven Jones. She leaves to cherish her memory, her aunt, Arnetta Hoston of Vallejo, CA; her sister, Sheila; two brothers, Kenneth and Mark; and a host of nieces, nephews, and cousins.
