Charlotte Ann (Ramsey) Stammann was born on June 12, 1942 to Howard Worth Ramsey and Elizabeth Pearl (Roberts) Ramsey in Morencia, Arizona. She grew up in Tucson, Arizona where she was an honor student in elementary and high school, as well as the University of Arizona (B.A. Elementary Eduaction, 1964).
While in junior high school, Charlotte became a born again Christian during a revival at the Boulevard Baptist Church in Tucson and was disciple through Sunday school, Baptist Training Union, Girls in Action and Baptist Women’s Ministry.
During her college days, she felt the call to be a pastor’s wife and God provided a candidate when her soon to be husband moved to Tucson to work in the copper mines and to attend the University of Arizona. They dated during their freshman year and were married June 9, 1962. God blessed them with a beautiful son, Timothy Ray, in 1964. Both Charlotte and Dan worked and continued their university studies.
While Dan attended seminary at New Orleans Baptist Theology Seminary, Charlotte earned at Pht (Put Hubby Through) degree by teaching at local elementary schools. She continued to teach during Dan’s first two pastorates, but retired to be a full-time mother and pastor’s wife in 1975.
Throughout their 58 years of continual ministry, Charlotte served in many capacities in the church and community. Her true loves were God, her husband, family and God’s people. Charlotte’s hobbies were home decorating, homemaking, flower arranging, softball, camping, boating and table games. Charlotte’s core Christian values were love, integrity and service.
Charlotte is survived by her husband, Dan; son, Timothy and wife Soheyla; granddaughters, Madison, Aleyna and Kennedy; grandson, Austin Carol; brother, Gary Allen Ramsey; sister, Polly Schleicher; nieces, Debbie McCullough and Donna Williams; and nephew, Eddie Williams.
