Charlotte Sullivan, age 62, of Mena, Arkansas died Sunday, December 29, 2013 at her home. She was born on Thursday, November 22, 1951 to Harry and Betty Harrison Bell in Mena, Arkansas.
Charlotte enjoyed being the middle child and keeping the attitude of a sixteen year old. Where Becky had the brains and Barbara had the beauty Charlotte embraced her sense of humor. She was born and raised in Mena, Arkansas but enjoyed the adventures of living elsewhere which helped her to developed a positive approach to life’s challenges, never taking the safer route. She set an example of strength and energy for her children and all who knew her. She was a proud member of the Ouachita Arts Craft Guild where her nimble fingers made something of nothing, transforming scraps of fabric into works of art. Her weekly lunch with the Friday’s Ladies Group, where laughter was always on the menu, was where friends gave and received love and support. She enjoyed the unconditional love of Goober and JoJo, her dog and cat. Charlotte was a loving mother, grandmother, sister and friend and will be missed by all who knew her.
She was preceded in death by her parents and the love of her life, James McCulley of Hatfield.
Charlotte is survived by her daughter and son-in-law Laurie and Sam Lively of Mena and one son and daughter-in-law Shawn and Dee Ann Hill of Rockport, Texas. She was “Granny” to Jesse and Hannah Lively and T.J. and Justin Hill and all of the other young people whose lives she touched. She was also survived by her sisters Becky Henderson of Kansas City, Missouri and Barbara Strickland of Mena; several nieces and nephews and a host of other relatives and friends.
A memorial services will be held Wednesday, January 1, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. at the Penuel Assembly of God in Hatfield with Pastor Kevin Price officiating. Arrangements are entrusted to the Bowser Family Funeral Home Chapel in Mena.
