Charlotte Elizabeth Stoiber, 93, died peacefully in her sleep August 1, 2014. Charlotte was born January 9, 1921, to Katharina and Frank Schwab in Dingolfing, Germany. She was a graduate of Woodward High School where she played 1st violin. Charlotte worked as a legal secretary until marrying Edward Stoiber and raising her family.

Charlotte was a ravenous reader and a competitive player of bridge, pinochle, and Scrabble. She completed the Blade crossword puzzle daily.
Charlotte's first love was family, and a favorite memory was of yearly family vacations to Houghton Lake, Michigan. She hosted summer holidays at her Lake Erie cottage for extended family and prepared monthly dinners at her home for her grandchildren. Her love of baking had been shown by baking themed cakes for their birthdays. She also knitted and crocheted afghans for all thirteen of them.
