Charlotte Ann Sullins Acebo, born in Houston, Texas on the 5th of January 1942, passed away peacefully at her home in Houston on Wednesday, the 25th of April 2012, at the age of 70.
She was a devoted mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, niece, cousin and friend to many. Charlotte was a graduate of Sam Houston State University and was proud to have been a high school Journalism and English teacher for 31 years, 17 of those at Huntsville High School. Upon her retirement in 1999, Charlotte became a full-time grandmother, her most passionate and beloved role in life. One of her greatest joys was her family and family gatherings, which she enjoyed along with her lifelong passions of cooking great food, writing, reading, and, not to be forgotten- her Houston Rockets.
Her strength, passion, love, caring, will, and stubbornness profoundly touched all those she encountered and words cannot express the impact she had on her family and everyone around her.
Charlotte is preceded in death by her father and mother, Joe Horace and Virginia Sullins; brother, Joe Sullins Jr.; and niece, Michelle Nelson.
Charlotte was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by her surviving family members; daughter, Debbie Acebo and son-in-law, Wendel Skolaski daughter, Denise Acebo Hansen and son-in-law, Steve Hansen; grandsons, Parker Williams and Tanner Hansen; step-grandchildren, Robert and Scott Skolaski and Kristen Lounder; sister, Martha Weidenheft; nephews, Michael Nelson, Matthew Sullins, Hank Sullins and Sam Sullins; niece, Sarah Sullins; and countless other family, loved ones, friends, and former students.
