HOKAH - On June 7, 2021, Charlotte Esther Lloyd-Witt, passed away peacefully in her home in Hokah, MN, surrounded by family. At the age of 91. Born October 5, 1929, in Rollingstone, MN.

Charlotte was one of 14 children, born to Orrin Lloyd and Pearl Herrick. In July of 1950 she married Bernard Witt in Dakota at Holy Cross Catholic Church. Charlotte and Bernard loved to dance, "their song", was "The Blue Skirt Waltz". They farmed and milked cows in Ridgeway, MN. Later they bought a home in Hokah, where they raised 10 children.

Mom loved life and was always willing to "Go and Do" things with family and friends. With her down-home friendly demeanor, she made many lifelong friendships. Mom had a big heart and always had a "soft spot" for people in need.

She had 10 children and 16 grandchildren, 15 great grandchildren and 3 great great grandchildren.

Adventurous and funny, she made the best mother and grandmother to us all.

Growing up in Hokah as your neighbor, I remember Charlotte well. She was a wonderful person and from reading the obituary, she lived a full life. Sorry for your loss.

I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of Charlotte, what a legacy she left, she was blessed. Our families have known each other all of our lives, with loss, and many ,many,.... memories. So to each of you, hold those memories, because they will be your treasure.
You can't bring back your yesterday's, and you're not guaranteed tomorrow, so live your today's, thats how I still get through the tough times.
One thing, I will always remember her voice, and laugh.

I met Charlotte in her later years. I couldn't believe she wasn't younger, as she was very young at heart. Her love for her family and theirs for her kept her going so well. She will be very much missed. My thoughts will be with her amazing large family as they say goodbye to such an important figure in their lives.

Auntie, I can just imagine when you walked through those pearly gates of heaven, giving a yell to all family, and greeting them all with your smile. I know you´re in a better place, no more pain, but you will surely be missed here.

Extending deepest condolences to Charlotte’s children. Your Mom and mine were cut from the same cloth...always willing to lend a helping hand. One night between La Crescent and Hokah, Mom had car trouble. This was before cell phones, so Mom’s only choice was to start walking! By the grace of God, your Mom was on her way home from work, drove past, then realized who it was. She turned around and brought Mom home safely. We heard that story often, always with a great sense of appreciation for your Mother’s kindness.
