In addition to her husband, she leaves behind a daughter Debbie (grandsons Tony & Nick), son Robert Jr (Coleen, grandsons Bobby and Emile). Her extended family includes her sister in law Leona Malcom, and aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews.
Charlotte and Robert were married in 1950. In 1953, they moved to Moses Lake, Washington for 10 years, before moving to Ellensburg, Washington in 1963, when Robert accepted a position in the music department at Central Washington University. In 2009, Robert and Charlotte made a move to the coast to be closer to family.
Charlotte will be remembered as a loving wife and mother. She adored her grandsons, who will miss her terribly. Charlotte loved her extended family and always wanted what was best for them.
