Mrs. Charlotte Lou Wilder, age 78 of Speedwell, TN was born February 8, 1941 and passed away Friday, August 23, 2019 at her home with her loving husband by her side. Charlotte enjoyed sewing and quilting. She made many quilts but she never would keep them for herself. As soon as one was made, she would give it away. This shows the loving and caring heart that Charlotte had.

She was preceded in death by her parents; Leonard and Ruth Harris, her son; Steven Wilder, brother; Royal D. Harris, sisters; Geraldine and JoAnn.

She is survived by her loving husband of 56 years; Gerald “Bean Bug” Wilder, granddaughter; Shelby Wilder, 2 great grandchildren, several nieces, nephews and a host of other loving relatives and friends.
