Born in Jewett, on Jan. 19, 1928, Charlsie was the eldest child of Charles Theodore Williams and Fonny Agnes McLaughlin Williams. Charlsie helped her family by caring for the younger children during her mother’s protracted illness. She maintained a desire and ability to care for a wide variety of individuals from loved ones to lost animals. She enjoyed gardening, raising roses and delighted in observing nature. She was particularly fond of her miniature poodle, Tiki, and her border collie, Allie.
A child of the Great Depression, Charlsie believed in wasting nothing, including daylight and opportunities. She instilled that value in her children and demonstrated the importance of hard work and preparation.
Charlsie had an knack for evaluating people and situations which aided her career as a project cost accountant for Upjohn Polymer Chemical Research and Development. She rose to be an executive in the chemical industry at a time when women in such positions were rare. She retired in 1981 to travel with her husband Roger.
Charlsie lived a life of courage and integrity, and her example will leave a lasting imprint on the future.
A memorial service honoring the life of Charlsie Williams Wylie will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, June 15, at Clements -Wilcox Funeral Home, 1805 U.S.281 in Marble Falls.
The family wishes to thank Dr. Juliette Madrigal-Dersch and her staff, and all the wonderful people at Granite Mesa who made Charlsie’s final months joyful and comfortable.
