Ms. Lottie never met a stranger and was loved by everyone. She was always doing something special for others, and helping anyone who needed assistance. Anyone touched by her kind deeds was truly blessed.
She was a member of Cherry Ridge Baptist Church where she would meet with a special group of ladies on Tuesdays to quilt and have fellowship. She also loved being a part of the Keenagers of Cherry Ridge.
For over 20 years, Ms. Lottie worked at Billington Drug Store, and then, for 38 years, she worked for Rodgers Pharmacy and Rodgers Hallmark. She loved being around people everyday.
Ms. Lottie is preceded in death by her husband of 54 years, Robbin Carpenter; her parents; brothers, Leslie and Elton Burnett; sisters, Ruth "Biddie" Singley, Dollie Shields, Dora Sims, Bessie Rea, Winnie Holland, and baby sister, Ruby.
She is survived by her pride and joy, her daughter, Glenda Joyce Acreman and husband Kenneth, of Bastrop; a very special adopted granddaughter, Tonya Medaries; three very loving great grandchildren, Christian, Etta, and Lauren; and several nieces and nephews. Two of her nieces, Sandra Holley and Karen Lusby, gave a lot of their time to help with caring for Ms. Lottie. Also, much appreciation goes to her hospice nurse, Sheree Welch and her aide Cassandra Johnson, for the love and compassion they gave her.
Pallbearers will be James Nall, Warren Walker, Jim Wilson, Jim Hayes, Eugene Copeland and Lynn Sanders.
The Lord blessed Ms. Lottie with a lot of love, and she shared it with everyone she met. She truly is a child of God.
