After high school Charlotte became a part of the cadet nurses corp at Bethesda Hospital in Zanesville, then later she went to work during the war for an insurance agency in downtown Columbus, Ohio. After the war and her marriage to William Larr she and her husband went to work at the newly opened Coshocton General Electric Plant where she obtained the position of secretary to the General Manager of the Plant.
After the death of her infant son she took a year off then returned to the work force part time for the Coshocton County Auditor's Office. Eventually she became the full time person in charge of payroll for the county under auditors Spike Kanuckle, Richard Tompkins and Deputy Auditor Betty Leech.
She was a member of the Dresden Madison Presbyterian Church and was a beloved Sunday school teacher at Madison Presbyterian Church for many years. Later she attended the Tyndall United Methodist Church.
Charlotte was an intelligent, fun loving and humorous person and above all, loyal and kind. Her interests included reading, poetry, visits by family and friends, travelling and in the springtime, mushroom hunting! She was so happy to have a grandson and she loved children.
