  1. Met Charlotte in 1965 when they were at the Ohio State University. Charlotte was not only a great friend but a wonderful lady. She will be missed by family and friends.

  2. I have not visited with Charlotte for many years, but we were in high school and college together. She personified the term “vim , vigor, and vitality.” She always had a smile and a wonderful laugh.
    I can’t imagine Charlotte as a great grandmother, but I know she will be missed greatly by her family. I know she is with her Lord and she is happy and laughing again.
