Charlotte White Overby, 65, of Pontotoc departed from this life on Wednesday, December 16, 2020, at Sanctuary Hospice House in Tupelo after an extended illness. Born on April 9, 1955, in Batesville, she was a daughter to the late Billy Fred White and Faye Haire White.
Charlotte, affectionately known as Lot Lot, graduated from Bruce High School and continued her education at the University of Mississippi where she earned her bachelor’s degree. She later obtained her Master of Education from Mississippi State University. Charlotte married the love of her life,Charley Overby, on April 13, 1974 in Bruce. The couple spent over forty-six blissful years together. Those decades were filled with many memories, one daughter, and a spoiled grandchild. Charlotte’s life was defined not only by her encouraging spirit but also by her giving nature. She supported her friends and peers alike, no matter how great or small the endeavor. With her giving spirit this admirable lady utilized her time and skills to benefit anyone whose path she crossed. With all the attributes of a great teacher, Charlotte dedicated her life to teaching and molding young minds at the high school and collegiate level. When she wasn’t looking after the needs of others she could be found turning the pages of good book, monogramming, and attending basketball games in both local school systems and colleges. Charlotte did not simply pass away she held in her soul the cure to death, a relationship with the Lord where she worshiped Him at West Heights Baptist Church.
Charlottes leaves behind a loving close-knit family that will continue walking down the path of life in her absence: husband Charley Overby of Pontotoc, daughter Cassidy (Adam) Patton of Pontotoc, grandson Rhodes Roberts Patton of Pontotoc, brother Calvin (Amanda) White of Olive Branch, sister Carolyn (Keith) Morris, nephew Jack White, and two nieces: Christina Morris and Addie Kate White, and host of special loved ones that she nurtured in the walk of life.
Charlotte was preceded in death by her parents Billy Fred White and Faye Haire White, son-in-law Rodney Roberts, and niece Mary Bailey White.
