Charlotte loved spending time doing crossword puzzles and in her garden. She had beautiful flower beds that she took great pride in. Christmas was a favorite time of year of Charlotte's. Everything was always decorated beautifully for the season and Christmas was always a big deal in their household. She cooked and baked year round all sorts of goodies, but during this time of year she spent hours in the kitchen, making homemade candies to take to family and friends at different holiday gatherings. There were so many memories made during this season, as well as throughout her life, and they will be forever cherished by her family.
A celebration of Charlotte's life will be held Monday, March 6, at 2:00 p.m. at Sunset- Urbas Funeral Chapel, 414 S. State Street, Westville. Her nephew, Pastor Jon Carrell will officiate. She will be laid to rest at Greenwood Cemetery. Visitation will be held one hour prior to services at the funeral home.
