Charlotte’s greatest joy was being a mother and grandmother. She spent her life ensuring her children and grandchildren were loved and cared for. Charlotte and Bob Sr. were very committed to ensuring all of the children and grandchildren were college educated.
She loved the holidays, family dinners, and babysitting the grandchildren when they were small. Holidays were a special time, surrounded by family with lots of decorations and delicious food. Charlotte was a very talented cook and baker, and loved preparing delicious treats for the occasions.
