March 21, 1949 - December 6, 2021
Beverly Ruth Cartee Lecomte, age 72, a resident of Charleston, TN for the past 16 years passed away on Monday, December 6, 2021. She came to Charleston in 2005 when her husband, Douglas Lecomte, was transferred by Olin Corp. from Mobile, AL. She was preceded by her parents, James Curtis Cartee and Beatrice Knight Cartee. Beverly was active in her church, Council Baptist Church, in Charleston, TN. She held many jobs over the years, being a single mom and raising her two children, Wayne and Tamara. Her last job was with the U.S. National Institute of Health as an interviewer. Beverly met her husband in 1991 and they married in 1999 which began years of traveling. They saw 30 of the 59 National Parks, five providences in Canada, and visited France, Belgium, Germany, Austria, and Italy. She was also Chaplin for the American Legion Auxiliary, Post 61, Cleveland, TN. Her hobby was collecting antiques which meant yard sales and antique stores were a must-see. She never met a stranger and babies were a must-see for her, no matter whose baby it was. She was preceded in death by two older brothers, Ronald Cartee and Curtis Cartee. Those left behind to cherish her memory are her husband, Douglas A. Lecomte; daughters, Marla Hodges (Phillip), Darielle Roden (Robert), and Tamara D. Foster (Joshua); son, Charles W. Sheffield; grandchildren, Lawton Hodges, John Luke, twins, Reed and Katherine Foster, Hunter and Jordan Sheffield; two sisters, Roxanne McManus and Katherine Jordan; three brothers, Jack (Mary Edna), Michael (Sue), and Kenny (Janger); many nephews and nieces; other relatives; and friends. Beverly had a very strong personality but behind it was a woman that was very compassionate, caring, and giving to those for whom she had empathy. Visitation will be held on Monday, December 13, 2021 from 9-10 AM at Serenity Funeral Home, followed by service at 10 AM. Interment will be held in Calvert Memorial Cemetery.
