Charlie as she was known by friends and family, and Granny by her 3 grandchildren whom she loved dearly. She was also and amazing great granny to her 3 great grandchildren and had just learned of her 4th due in January 2024. Charlie was a loving Mom, grandma, sister, aunt, and friend, if she wasn’t enjoying a good cup of coffee with friends or family, she was doing what she loved, creating a craft, sewing a blanket, or baking, of course that is if there was not a NASCAR race on.
A celebration of life will be held at the Silt Veterans Park 500 Home Ave. Friday, June the 9th 2023 at 11:30am. There will be a potluck to follow. The family request no flowers but to bring your favorite side dish or dessert and a memory to share.
