Charlotte was born to William and Pearlren Phillips in Opelousas, La on August 5, 1958. Residing in Bossier City, she met the love of her life, Rex Shamburger, to whom she was married for 37 years. Charlotte was a homemaker and mother of three, but she became “Mimi” to most, once granddaughters Hannah, Breana, and Brooklyn came along.
Charlotte loved sewing and crafting of all kinds. She enjoyed planning holidays and festivities with family and friends. She also enjoyed traveling and the outdoors. The beach, lake, and sunshine fueled her soul, and her houseboat on Lake Greeson was her favorite getaway. She will be deeply missed by those who shared these passions with her.

Left to cherish her memory and carry on her legacy are: husband, Rex Shamburger; son, Chris Shamburger, wife Jackie; granddaughters: Breana and Brooklyn; daughter, Nicole Byrd; granddaughter, Hannah; son, Rex Shamburger Jr.; sister, Lucy Dority; niece Nikki; three loving pets: Lil Man, Izzy Lou and Dazzy Mae.
