Charlotte Eisenmann passed away peacefully on Friday, October 5, 2012 in Palm Coast, Florida at the home of her devoted daughter Heidi, surrounded by her loving family. She was born in Annaberg, Germany to Albin and Frieda Pollmer. At the age of 23 she met and married Karl Eisenmann and together they made their home in Heilbronn, Germany, established their restaurant business and raised 3 daughters. She lived a long and eventful life and had many wonderful, exciting and sometimes horrifying stories to tell, having been born at the end of WWI, living through the depression and then WWll, witnessing the destruction and rebuilding of her homeland. She was widowed in 1994 and lived alone for the next 7 years. But she was a strong and courageous woman who decided at the age of 85 to immigrate to the US to live with her daughter Gabi in Lodi. Soon after her arrival she joined St. Peter Lutheran Church as well as the German order of Hermann's Sons, where she was happy to be able to speak in German to her new friends. She enjoyed knitting, crossword puzzles and reading her German magazines. She was a strong advocate for treating all sorts of ailments in the most natural way in accordance with tried-and-true home remedies and attributes her long life to eating an apple a day, having a glass of red wine after dinner and a daily dose of dark chocolate. She spent her last year with her daughter Heidi in Florida and in her last days was cared for by the very kind and caring nurses of Vitas Hospice. She is survived by her daughters Friedrun Lehman (Lee) of Great Falls, Montana, Heidi Mers of Palm Coast, Florida and Gabi Libhart (Ken) of Lodi as well as 9 grandchildren, 28 great-grandchildren and 12 great-great grandchildren. Her committal to Cherokee Memorial Cemetery will be private.
