Charlotte Campbell

June 5, 1938 — September 2, 2023

Charlotte Campbell, 85, of Lawrenceville, peacefully passed away surrounded by and enfolded in the abiding love of family on September 2, 2023. Charlotte was born on June 5, 1938 in Moultrie, Georgia to the late Norman David Campbell and Mary Andrews Campbell. She is preceded in death by her sister Betty Jean Campbell. She is survived by her sister Patricia (Pat) Campbell and many loving cousins and cherished friends who will miss her beyond measure.


As a young child, Charlotte lived in Corpus Christi, Texas and then moved back to Moultrie, finally landing in Bulloch County, Georgia where she graduated with honors from Statesboro High School in 1956. Charlotte wanted to be in the band and was fiercely determined to earn a college scholarship. When she asked the band director which instrument she had to play in order to get that scholarship, he said, "Well, I have a piccolo!" Charlotte was one of the few who learned to play the piccolo before the flute. She also made it clear that it would be "a cold day in July" before she would ever play a solo, but word has it that she could masterfully play every bit of "The Stars and Stripes Forever" like no other.


Charlotte did indeed earn a full scholarship to Florida State University and received her BA in Psychology in 1960. And of course she played flute and piccolo with the famous Marching Chiefs! Charlotte was also a member of the Alpha Epsilon chapter of Phi Mu sorority and served as Ritualistic Chairman.


Charlotte's background in psychology led her into a trailblazing 30 year career at Sears, Roebuck and Co. She served as Territorial Psychologist and Director of College Relations in Atlanta, followed by two tours of duty in the Chicago headquarters. While in the Sears Tower in Chicago, she ran the college recruiting program that hired management trainees for retail stores and the credit organization, nationwide.


Since Charlotte's position at Sears required extensive-and many times unplanned-travel, she became acquainted with in-home pet sitting for her cats. Her experiences there led her to start her own pet sitting company when she returned to Atlanta. Charlotte served the Lawrenceville area in this loving capacity for 20 years.


Having lived with a Boxer for almost 18 years, Charlotte was a self-proclaimed "dog person owned by two cats." She was also an artist whose tree drawings were just as intricate and detailed as they were suggestively open and vast. Charlotte was a lifelong voracious reader, quick-witted story teller, experienced angler, loyal friend, and unwavering inspiration to her goddaughter Kelly Thompson, whom she loved as though her own child.


A celebration of life is not planned at this time. You can stay in touch with Pat and Kelly at tkellann2@gmail.com.
