Charlotte Alexander Buster Obituary
85, passed away Monday, May 7, 2018. She was a native of Scottsville, KY, 50+ year member of St. Matthews United Methodist Church and a retired hairdresser and owner of LaRee Beauty Salon.

She is preceded in death by her husband of 48 years, Frank V. Buster. Her parents, Jack Alexander and Maddie Moss, and her siblings, Sarah and Jack Douglas.

Charlotte was a beloved member of the St. Matthews community, where she spent countless hours serving others. She was a long serving member of Twigs #4, North East Louisville Business Association, and of course her beloved St. Matthews Methodist Church. She was also a member of the Order of the Eastern Star. She was a volunteer for countless charitable organizations, including Apple Patch Inc., St. Matthews Women's Club, and The 's "Look Good Feel Better" program for cancer patients undergoing treatment. Her community interests and service to others were extraordinary in depth and longevity.

Charlotte was a pioneer and a role model for young women across the state. She was voted amongst the Top 15 Businesses in the City of Louisville (2 years in a row), voted Kentucky's Outstanding Hair Dresser 4 times, and inducted into the Kentucky Cosmetology Association Hall of Excellence in 1988. Charlotte was well known in and outside of her profession, she received accolades recognizing her outstanding service, some of which include A Key to the City of Louisville, The National Cosmetology Association of Kentucky 2002 Community Leadership Award, and The First Capital Bank "Deep Roots" award, recognizing her commitment to serving others.

Charlotte enjoyed life to the fullest, her network of friends spanned the country who loved and admired her deeply. She was a sweet soul and truly one of a kind. Until her final days, she was thinking of others, evidenced by gifts prepared and left on her dining room table. Although we know the void will be deep as we long for her spark and wit, we pray that the happy memories overflow and carry you each forward until that time we meet again.

Survivors include Frank Buster (Jody) and Curtis Buster (Anne); grandchildren Katherine Whitworth (Richard), Sarah Shanks (Nathan), Elizabeth Buster (Michael Boone), Rebecca and Patrick Buster; great grandchildren Reid and Virginia Whitworth.
Funeral service will be held at 10 a.m. on Thursday, May 10, 2018 at St. Matthews United Methodist Church, 319 Browns Lane. Graveside service will be held at 12 CST in the Cave City (KY) Cemetery on Thursday.

In lieu of flowers donations may be made to St. Matthews United Methodist Church.
