She was predeceased by her brother, William J. Bishop, and grandson, Matthew Donald Ransom.
She devoted her early years to being a farmer's wife, homemaker, and raising her family. She was always there for her family, they came first. She waited until her children were grown or on their own before she worked outside of the home. One of her jobs, was babysitting children from the community. The children loved her. She labored at a few different places in Montrose; the last being the Susquehanna County Courthouse Assessment Office from which she retired in the late 1990's.
One of Charlotte's favorite things in life was music. Many times she hosted a "jam session" at her home, with different family members getting together to sing and play musical instruments. Her ability to "play-by-ear" was a most treasured gift God gave her. Mom had played piano and used her unique talent for special music at the East Bridgewater Community Church, where she had been a member for many years.
She also enjoyed traveling, shopping, social-networking, and spending time with her friends and family.
A Memorial Service will be held at 11:30 a.m., Wednesday, November 13, 2013 at the Daniel K. Regan Funeral Home, with Rev. Gary Compton officiating. Visitation will be one hour prior to the service.
