 5/22/1928 – 11/5/2015

Charlotte was born in Milwaukee, WI to John and Nellie Klein.

Charlotte is survived by her beloved husband Robert Panerio, Sr. She was not only his wife, but his best friend as well. 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.

A celebration of life service will be held for Charlotte on November 21st, at 1:00 PM at Saint John The Baptist Catho­lic Church in Cle Elum, Washington 98922. A luncheon will follow.
