Charlotte Ember Allen passed away on January 2, 2021, at Cartersville Medical Hospital after a brief illness.
She was born on September 20, 1946, in White, GA, to the late Geneva and Donald Vincent.
Charlotte met her husband, James Harris Allen, at Cartersville High School where they both graduated. On June 25, 1964, they married and remained together for the next fifty-six years before her passing. Charlotte earned a bachelor's degree in nursing and was employed at Barnes Jewish Children's Hospital as an RN in St. Louis, MO. She used to live in Augusta, SC; Yorktown, VA; St. Louis, MO, and later moved back to Cartersville soon after her retirement of over thirty years. Charlotte loved traveling and had been on several cruises. She enjoyed volunteering her time to those in need. Charlotte was happy to be a part of Operation Smiles, which is an organization assisting underprivileged children throughout South America. One of her favorite things to do was to watch police and medical TV dramas, as well as her favorite team, the Braves.
Along with her husband, she is survived by her children, James Donald Allen and Jolanda Allen (Kenneth) Lawrence; grandson, Joshua Matthew Kirkpatrick; step-grandsons (Kenneth Lawrence III, Michael Lawrence); great-stepgrandchildren (Michael Lawrence Jr. William Lawrence, Hailee Lawrence, Avery Lawrence and Sydney Lawrence); sister, Shirley (Phillip) Brown; and brother, Michael (Tonya) Vincent.
Plans are being made to have a celebration service of her life the summer of 2021 at a location to be determined. Owen Funeral Home is honored to take charge of services for the Allen family. Please share fond memories and leave condolences with the Allen family at www.owenfunerals.com.
