Charlotte Ann (Howard) Ashworth

January 24, 1947 ~ August 3, 2023 (age 76) 76 Years Old


Charlotte Ann Ashworth, beloved mother, sister, grandmother, and great grandmother, passed away peacefully on August 3, 2023, in Plant City, Florida. She was born on January 24, 1947, in Iuka, Mississippi, to Benjamin Howard and Letha Christine Brown. Charlotte was a loving, kind, and faith-filled woman who was deeply loved and admired by her family and friends.

Charlotte was the cherished wife of the late Sherman Lake Ashworth Sr. She was also the loving sister to the late Billy Brown, Robert Howard, Jack Howard, Tommy Howard, Beverly Simmons, and Carolyn Howard. She is also preceded in death by granddaughter; Erika Lopez and grandson; Chase Corbett. She is survived by her siblings Clifton Howard and Mabel Martin, her children Sherman (Belinda) Ashworth, Angelia (Bruce) Corbett, and Sonjia (Juan) Garcia, sixteen grandchildren, thirteen great grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews. Charlotte's family was the center of her world, and she was the heart of theirs.

Charlotte was a devoted member of the New Hope Freewill Baptist Church. Her faith was a guiding force in her life, providing her with strength, comfort, and purpose. She lived her faith every day, demonstrating kindness, generosity, and love to all who knew her. She was known for her warm smile, her gentle spirit, and her unwavering faith.

In her leisure time, Charlotte found joy in the simple pleasures of life. She loved tackling crossword puzzles, finding them to be both a fun challenge and a source of relaxation. She also enjoyed yardwork and yard sales, always on the hunt for a hidden treasure or a great bargain. But of all her interests, Charlotte cherished her family above all else. She loved spending time with her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren, creating memories that will be treasured forever.

As we remember Charlotte, we are reminded of the quote by Maya Angelou: "People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." Charlotte touched the lives of many with her kindness and love, leaving a lasting impression on all who knew her. Her spirit will live on in the hearts of her family and friends, and she will be deeply missed.

Charlotte's life was a testament to the power of love, kindness, and faith. She was a beacon of light in the lives of those who knew her, illuminating the path with her unwavering love and devotion. Her legacy will continue to inspire and guide us, reminding us of the importance of family, faith, and love.

While we mourn the loss of Charlotte, we also celebrate her life and the love she shared with us. We are comforted by the knowledge that she is now at peace, reunited with her beloved husband and siblings in heaven. As we say goodbye to Charlotte, we hold onto the memories we shared and the love that will forever bind us together.

Charlotte Ann Ashworth, a woman of unwavering faith, enduring love, and boundless kindness, will be deeply missed but never forgotten. May she rest in peace.
