Oct. 15, 2019

Charlotte Marie Corley, 89, of Garrison, Texas passed away on October 15, 2019 in Garrison, Texas.  Born June 17, 1930, Charlotte is the daughter of the late Clyde LuRoy Snyder and Edna (Woonacott) Snyder.  Graveside service will be held Friday, October 18, 2019 at 11AM at Cold Springs Cemetery, Garrison, Texas with Pastor Brian Tyre officiating.  

On June 17, 1930, Clyde and Edna Snyder welcomed baby Charlotte Marie to their family in Spokane, Washington.

Growing up in Washington lead to many precious memories for Charlotte.  She adored her grandmother and loved going to her farm in the beautiful hills of Eastern Washington.  A very “artful” child, she loved to paint and draw.  In winter, she couldn’t wait to put on her ice skates and enjoy the outside rinks and frozen ponds for hours on end.

Charlotte married Louis Parker from Texas and they had 6 children.  She was a homemaker who enjoyed cooking and gardening.  She was an animal lover.  Charlotte moved to Garrison in 1975 with then husband, Tommy King.  She was employed as a bookkeeper all of her adult life, retiring from Morgan Oil Company after many years of service.  

Mom would later marry Murvel Corley of Garrison. He preceded her in death in 2007. Also preceding her in death were her parents, sisters, Lenah and Florence, and lots of other family members and friends.

Charlotte is survived by Johnny and Jeannie Parker, Roger and Sheryl Parker, Judy and Gary Barnett, Sharon and Dennis McCallister, Linda Parker Frederick, and Michael Parker.  She was a grandmother to 19 grandchildren and several great grands as well.  She also leaves behind her beloved dog, Taco. 

The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses at Nacogdoches Medical Center, Dr. Ted Ledet, his wonderful staff, and Accolade Hospice for all that they do. We especially thank Joice Simone for her kindness and loving friendship while caring for our mom.

Charlotte was a member of Holly Springs Baptist Church.
