Charlotte was such a joy to care for. Every morning it was our routine to wake up to our oldies playlist and to share a smile. Such a beautiful soul and I'm thankful I got to know her for the short time that I did. She will truly be missed. My condolences to all of her loved ones and family.

Mom, Thanks for always letting me be who I am and helping me grow into who I have become. (the little girl who wore a gas station suit or jeans and converse sneakers to a birthday party instead of the beautiful dress you bought me, secretly hoping that´s what I I would wear) You have always taught me to smile and say "hello" to the people we cross paths with. I admired the way everyone loved being in your presence due to your welcoming ways, you taught me the true value of friendship. Your strong work ethic taught me the value of money and independence. You provided discipline that taught me how to be a respectful human being and contributing member of society. You supported and believed in me through college, even after changing my major 3 times. You made sure we had a great Summer with fun family vacations. I guess what I am saying to you mom is that you instilled so much of you in me...you will always bring a smile to my face when I think of how lucky I was to have you and love you as my mom. Dementia may have stolen you from us, but your lifetime of goodness and heartfelt memories will be carried on through your children, family, friends and other people you have touched. May you be at peace my beautiful mom and friend. Love you always to the moon and back, Your daughter, Charlene

Charlene, Sheri, and Family I am truly sorry for the loss of Charlotte. She had such a beautiful soul and an amazing smile. That smile would always brighten my day when I would walk into her room. The time that I got to spend and care for Charlotte I will never forget. She will be missed by all.

Aunt Charlotte, Thank you for your smiling presence in my life. Your generosity was not lost on me, nor my mother. She remembers how you came over every day after I was born to help care for me while she still wore the cast on her leg. She remembers the birthday and holiday celebrations (although I was too young) and the fun times we had. She remembers how you loved to shop. I remember that you were short, like my mother, and you made me feel safe and secure; that you always looked so beautiful with hair dressings and coloring and makeup, and I wanted to look like you when I grew up. You never forgot to send me birthday and Christmas wishes. And one time, at an outdoor event in the evening when it was getting cool, you pulled a blanket from the trunk of your car to keep me warm, and then, when I tried to give it back, you waved your hand and told me to keep it, and I did. Decades later, I still have that blanket, worn and treasured, and thin enough to see through. Peace be unto you, Aunt Charlotte, and Blessed Be. Your goddaughter, Cindy.

We´re so very sorry for your loss. The loss of a Mother is a heart-wrenching pain like no other. Knowing that Charlotte is at peace, with no physical pain, and with Ralph... is a comforting thought; your two Guardian Angels. Condolences and love to the entire family.

Charlotte's Family, so sorry for your loss, I had the pleasure of getting to know her while working at Jewelcor. She was a beautiful pleasant woman whom was always cheerful, smiling & happy to the employees & customers. I enjoyed working with her, going out to eat lunches & dinners when we worked the same schedule. I also had the pleasure of meeting her husband, children & sisters when Sheri would perform in plays/dances at the Country Club, always had a fun time there. She's a beautiful Angel in Heaven watching over her family & friends. My thoughts & prayers are being sent to all of you. Co-worker & friend Barbara Marinkovits

Mom, I miss you more than words can say. You were always a constant in my life. Not only were you always my incredible Mom, but also my Best Friend. I truly never learned what the words "I miss you" were, until now when I reach for your hand and it isn´t there. I am so sorry I couldn´t fix your disease, I know it took a toll, and your memories were gone, but I will always remember for you. Mom, your passing leaves me with a heartache that no one can heal, but your love will always leave me with memories that no one can steal. God has gained such a beautiful Angel. Someday I will be in your arms again. For now I am not watching over you, but rather you are back to watching over me, always being my Mom. I love and miss you always and forever. Your loving daughter, Sheri
