Charlotte Diane Crabtree

Charlotte Diane Crabtree, age 63, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend, passed away on August 25, 2023, at her home in Murfreesboro. 

She was born on November 14, 1959, in Murfreesboro, the daughter of Orbie Porter and Ruby Evalou Barrett Porter. She was preceded in death by her father; her grandson, Keith Allen Tigue; her sister, Ruby Porter; and her niece, Lisa Denae Porter.

Charlotte was a dedicated and hardworking individual who devoted 26 years of her life to working at the Tyson plant. Her commitment and loyalty to her job were admired by all.  On July 9, 1997, Charlotte married the love of her life, Robert Lee Crabtree. Charlotte cherished every moment spent with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, and took great joy in spoiling them whenever she had the chance. She loved to crochet and paint. Charlotte loved growing all roses but she was partial to her yellow roses. Everyone who knew Charlotte knew how much she loved her dogs. She will be missed by all who knew and loved her.

She is survived by the love of her life for 26 years, Robert Crabtree of Murfreesboro; her mother, Ruby Porter of Glenwood; her four daughters and son-in-law, Lois Marie and Jimmy Dove of Glenwood, Diane Bentley of Murfreesboro, Judy Collins of Murfreesboro, and Jessica Crabtree of Arizona; her two sons, Randall Provence of Murfreesboro and Donnie Wayne Huffman, Jr. of Roseboro; her sixteen grandchildren, Alex, Wade, Ashley, Frederick, Zoe, Henry, Jazmine, Kimberly, Adrianna, Curley, John, Joshua, Trent, Donovan, Sheri, and Dalana; her fourteen great-grandchildren; her two brothers and their wives, Carlton and Tina Porter of California, and Larry and Lisa Porter of Kirby; her five nephews, Michael, Carlton Jr., Clyde, Kevin, and Eli; her two nieces, Jewel Anne and Jessica; and many cousins, extended family members, and loving friends.
