PLANTERSVILLE – -Charlotte Ann Jones Morris, 67, died Friday, December 18, 2020 at Baptist East Hospital in Germantown, TN after a brief and unexpected illness. Charlotte was born on Sept. 18, l153 in Ackerman, MS to the late Thomas and Helen Pruden Jones. She graduated from Ackerman High School in 1971, attended Holmes Junior College and later graduated from Mississippi State University with a degree in Medical Technology. Charlotte had a brilliant career of over 40 years with the North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo. At the time of her retirement, she was Supervisor over the Blood Bank. She was revered and respected by all her colleagues at NMMC. Charlotte otherwise was a devoted wife and mother while not working. Her two sons were the light of her life but her 4 grandsons were Mamaw’s complete delight. She and husband, Stan, enjoyed their log home in the Centerhill woods near Plantersville. Charlotte was an avid reader and, interestingly, a devout Ole Miss Rebel fan due to her dad’s strong influence despite graduating from MSU. She was a member of the Plantersville United Methodist Church.
