King – Charlene Frances Beeson Felts, 68, beloved mama, grandma (Magra), and friend passed away peacefully at Walnut Cove Health and Rehabilitation on Sunday, September 26, 2021, to be with her Heavenly Father and late husband John Garrett (Gary)Felts.
Charlene was born November 12, 1952, to the late Charles and Edith Beeson.
Charlene married her high school sweetheart, Gary Felts on August 16, 1968. She left AMP Inc. in 1995 due to disabilities and enjoyed the rest of her years as a wife, mother, and grandmother. She raised: John Felts of North Dakota and Angela Sparks (Tony) of Rural Hall, NC. While her health allowed, she was an active and dedicated member of various church activities at Mount Olive Baptist Church. She spent much of her time enjoying games and music on her computer and spreading laugher to friends. In the later years of her life, she took up crafting as a hobby; you name it and she did it. She often hopped from craft to craft, enjoying the creative spirit within her. She designed quilts, painted rocks, filled resin molds, and made jewelry to sell as she pleased. She was loved by many and touched the hearts of those she met along the way. She will be dearly missed.
Charlene was preceded in death by her parents and two brothers, Lester, and Larry Beeson.
She is survived by her two children: (John and Angela); four grandchildren: Lee Ann, Frankie, Valkyrie and Gerwfulf; one great grandchild, Dorian; and one sister, JoAnn Beeson; several cousins, nieces, nephews, and too many friends to list.
