Charlotte B. Gelb Obituary
September 1924 - September 2016 Born in Elizabeth, New Jersey, she lived in Brentwood and West LA for almost seventy years and passed shy of her 92nd birthday. A member of the California Society for Clinical Social Work, she had a long career at UCLA's NPI as a clinical social worker and marriage and family counselor with a specialty in sexual dysfunction. Later, she volunteered as a counselor for HIV patients. Well traveled and fluent in several languages, Charlotte supported the arts and politics, wrote short stories and was published professionally. As an artist, she inserted her personality and whimsy in her paintings and sculptures. She participated in several art shows and was recognized by the City of Los Angeles for contributions to the Senior Artist show held at City Hall. Charlotte supported and loved animals, but family was most important. She is survived by her children Anne Cholakian, Daniel Gelb, his wife Beverly Ellis, and her grandchildren Andrew Cholakian, his wife Jessica Nordell, and William Cholakian. We cherish and remember Charlotte's compassion, artistry, and love of family and animals. She is with us always and forever in our hearts.
