Charlotte was born Aug. 15, 1953, in Crowley. She was a graduate of Crowley High School. She started working as an operator for South-Central Bell out of high school. Then she became a mother and stayed home to care for her beloved daughter, Dori.
Charlotte started two retail stores in downtown Crowley — Six Star, which then became Ms. Charlotte’s. After her retirement from retail she became the Tourism Coordinator for the City of Crowley — “Where life is rice and easy” — a position she proudly held for 17 years.
Everyone on main street knew Ms. Charlotte and her catch phrase “Have a Rice Day.”
Her greatest accomplishment was being “Goldie” to her grandchildren Jack and Ellen. She had a loving group of friends who she enjoyed spending time with.
She is survived by one daughter, Dori Beth Jeffers Vincent and her father Edwin T. Jeffers; Charlotte was extremely close to her mother, Elaine Bertrand Robison; two grandchildren, Jack Thomas Vincent and Ellen Claire Vincent; and four brothers, Bruce Karl Robison, Gerald Robison, Richard “Ricky” Robison, Robert “Robbie” Robison, and their spouses.
Charlotte is preceded in death by her father, Carl Bruce Robison; her maternal grandparents, Elton Jules and Eulan LeJeune Bertrand; her aunt, Flossie Rayburn; and her mother-in-law, Rita Breaux LeBlanc.
