Everyone knew her as the “Chicken Lady” and customers and family said “every time we see a chicken we think of you”. “Bicycle Bob” was one of her many friends. Contributions from her customers went to the purchase of the statues in front of the Restaurant “Ham & Eggs” and “Girl Feeding Chickens”.

McCoy and Willard McCoy and paternal grandfather William “Tobe” Moore of Durant, OK and is survived by her Mother Juanita Foresee of Midwest City, father G.

  1. Charlotte’s family and close friends are in my thoughts and prayers.
    I knew her from her church membership as well as seeing her at her restaurant and at Hopefully Yours thrift store. The last time I saw her was at the thrift store and we were able to pray together, then show each other our thrifty bargains.
    She was a courageous and determined person in her fight against the cancers in her body. I learned much from Charlotte about persevering even though I saw her infrequently.
    She “kept on keeping on” as long as she could and now she is safely in the arms of God. Resting? Maybe, but soon she’ll be out and about exploring her heavenly home with Jesus.

  2. God bless you Charlotte,Your cancer battle is over and you can walk with Jesus….I haven’t seen you since I was about 19,but I never forgot you…I helped your School friend this last few years with the High School Reunion in Moore….wish I could have seen you….I once was in Atlanta and looked on line and seen you chained to a tree in Edmond,I told my daughter now thats Charlotte Worsham…Good by old friend.Meet up with you one day…

  3. From our high school days together, I remember Charlotte as the the popular, friendly young lady that was kind to everyone, regardless of their station in life. Meeting her again at our 50th reunion only reinforced that conception.

  4. I will always remember Around the Corner as the place that served country cookin’ in the city. Lots of gravy. Sort of like going to my grandma’s house for Sunday dinner when I was a kid. Rest in peace, Charlotte.

  5. Just learned of Charlotte’s passing when I tried to contact her to tell her of my mother’s passing. We lived down the street from Charlotte and Danny in Oklahoma City. She fed me while I was traveling on business in the Edmond area about 2 years ago. She was a wonderful, loving woman. I have fond memories of our time together on Sterling St.
