Charlotte Huie Redmond entered the presence of the Lord on February 24, 2024, at the age of 78. She was born May 6, 1945, in Olin, N.C., to Hoyt and Sarah Huie.

As the youngest of six children, her older brothers and sisters insisted she was spoiled and avoided the farm work. She denied this and attributed their sentiments as jealousy of her sense of style and her persuasive personality (getting others to do things they didn’t know they wanted to do).

Charlotte graduated from Union Grove High School in 1963 with hopes of seeing the world as a flight attendant; instead, she married her high school sweetheart, had two children and gave them the world. Charlotte had a variety of jobs (often two or three at a time) over the years, including the business office manager of Davis Hospital, Thorlo-Mills and the Town of Davidson. She was renowned for her ability to create beautiful, wrapped gifts — a skill she developed while working part time at Belk. Her Christmas wraps were so incredible that you sometimes hated to rip the paper to get to the gift. (Her grandchildren overcame that reluctance.)

Charlotte is survived by her son Phillip H. Redmond Jr. (Nell) and daughter Channon A. Allison (Andrew); and her three granddaughters (Rachel and Sarah Redmond and Audrey Allison).

Charlotte loved family vacations, especially to Oak Island every summer where there were multiple trips to Dairy Queen for a Hawaiian Blizzard. She adored her twelve nieces and nephews. Additionally, she fanatically followed the Tar Heels, the Dodgers and the Washington Commanders, although she never embraced the name change.

Her green thumb produced hundreds of beautiful flowers and plants over the years — a skill that apparently skipped her children’s generation. She mirrored the brilliant and vibrant colors of nature in her wardrobe — she never feared color or patterns and always seemed to make any combination work. Over the past few years with her friend, companion and caregiver Becky Bass (or Thelma and Louise as they were sometimes called), she delivered flowers all over Iredell and Davie counties. She loved describing the houses and the people they met along the way. Becky and Charlotte never met a stranger.

Charlotte’s favorite word was “Grammie.” She cherished every moment with her granddaughters and poured all the love, attention and support she could into each one of them.

A celebration of Charlotte’s life will be held on March 9, 2024, at Winthrop Friends Meeting, 262 Winthrop Road, Harmony, N.C. The family will gather to meet friends, share stories, laughter and some tears at 1 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall with the Celebration Service following at 2 p.m. in the Church.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to Winthrop Friends Meeting or the Gordon Hospice House ( where Charlotte volunteered for many years.

Troutman Funeral Home is serving the family.
