The family of Charlotte Hillstead desires to share the event of her peaceful passing. She was a beloved daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend. Graduated from Sheridan High School in 1948, she retired from US West in 1976. Charlotte and Bill Hillstead operated clothing stores together in Kalispell, MT, and Spokane, WA.
She was preceded in death by parents, Charles and Dolly McCalla of Sheridan, WY; husband, Virgil Walter of Kalispell, MT; sisters, Doris Hall of Sheridan, WY, Evelyn Ray of Denver, CO; and twin brother, Charles McCalla of Sheridan, WY.
She is survived by children, Bill Hillstead and Nancy Nelson of Vancouver, WA, and Janice Hurley (Ernie David Hurley MD) of Cheney, WA; and many grand and great-grandchildren, who she adored.
She loved dancing and was a member of Vancouver Emblem Club. We are not planning an in person gathering, rather we wish for everyone to honor her in the way that most touches your hearts. Please direct any memorial tributes to the local charity of your choosing.
