Charlotte (Barker) Morrison, age 72 of Grand Haven, passed away on Friday, May 7, 2021 at Mercy Hospital. She was born on November 29, 1948 in Eatonton, Georgia to the late Clive and Vera (Little) Barker. Charlotte married Michael “Mike” Morrison on March 20, 1971 in Eatonton, GA.
Charlotte graduated from Putnam Co. High School and went on to earn her bachelor’s degree in education from Georgia College. She worked as a teacher for several years before becoming a stay-at-home mom for their two children and was active in the bell-choir at United Methodist Church of the Dunes for many years.
Charlotte had an interest in family genealogy and traced her roots back to Cartmel, England, and even traveled there to meet her family members. She was very craft-oriented and an exceptional seamstress who not only sewed, but also did cross-stitch and embroidery work, often customizing all the clothing for Mike and the kids. Charlotte was a master gardener, attending extra classes at MSU to obtain her certification. She took great pride in her yard and flower gardens and was known for her attention to detail and beautiful landscaping.
