January 23, 1926 - March 5, 2019
Charlotte (Smith) Ouvry lifelong resident of Mancelona, died Tuesday, March 5, 2019 at Meadow Brook Medical Care Facility. The only daughter of the late Clyde and Alma Smith. Charlotte married her sweetheart, George Ouvry on February 1948. They were married 69 years when George passed in December 2017. She was also preceded in death by her son, Brian; and brothers, Bruce, Bud and Leon. There was never a moment when a smile was not spread across her face, or her ear turned to hear a good joke—especially one a bit off-color. She was always quick-witted and ready for a good punch line, or to read a birthday or greeting card with a naughty photo or a bit of adult humor. Charlotte’s greatest joy was her family, making a big dinner and having everyone together around the table. She loved to sit on her back porch and enjoy the Big Band sounds of Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller or the Andrew Sisters. Charlotte loved to take long car rides and take in the sights. Charlotte, along with her husband George, was always active in the business community in Mancelona, owning and operating several businesses including an egg farm, the Smith & Ouvry Shell Gas Station and Garage, the Dairy Queen, the Mancelona Laundromat, Skogmos, and RC & GO. Every Christmas, their friends and neighbors looked forward to receiving a package of homemade Lukken Belgian Waffle cookies. Charlotte is survived by her children, Gary of Mt. Pleasant, Norman of Lansing and Janice (Roger McDaniel) of Mancelona; grandchildren, Autumn Ouvry of Manton, Jennifer (Tom Burke) of Grand Blanc, Rebecca of Mt. Pleasant, Shane and Samantha Young of Mancelona; great grandchildren, Joseph, Madeleine and Brayden Burke of Grand Blanc. A celebration of Charlotte’s life and laughter will be on Saturday, March 16th at 2:00 pm at Meadow Brook Medical Care Facility. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the American Legion Post #264 George Puckett, 9850 S. Front, Mancelona, MI 49659 Arrangements were made by Wolfe-O’Neill Funeral Home, our family serving yours.
