Charlotte Layman, age 77, was born in Quincy, Illinois, on August 24, 1943.  She entered Heaven’s gates on January 11, 2021, at LaBelle, Missouri.

A loving mother and homemaker, Charlotte treasured time with her family and close friends. She enjoyed singing classic Gospel and Country songs and playing her guitar.   In her early years she was an exceptional roller-skater and in later years she enjoyed watching the Hallmark channel.  She appreciated the beauty of God’s creation and never turned down the opportunity for a Peanut Buster Parfait from Dairy Queen.

Charlotte was predeceased by her parents, Emett and Ruth Meyers Iams.  Charlotte is survived by her brother Wendell Iams; her brother, Lendell (Zip) Iams; her daughter, ChaRae Camp (husband Kerry); her son, Landon Freeman; and her son, Rocky Layman (wife Toni).  She is also survived by four grandchildren, Emily Hart (husband Ben), Megan Camp, Charlie Layman, and Isla Moana Layman.
