Matt, Michael and children. So very sad to hear of Charlotte's passing. She was a long time friend and we shared so much together, dating, married life, raising two small boys then working side by side for 17 years. I will truly miss her and know you kids will too. Treasure the memories, they will comfort you.

Our sincere sympathy to the family for your loss. Charlotte and Loren were always good citizens of Mt. Vernon, and assets to our town. It must be a comfort to know she is now with him and her folks, and the two babies they lost. Blessings to all.

As a cousin of Charlotte we shared many wonderful memories together with all the cousins. She always was pleasant and had a smile. She was so proud of her family. Gone too soon but not forgotten.

She was a very friendly person and even though I pastored the Presbyterian Church, She and her husband Loren were always up for a visit. She was one fine lady. The community of Mt. Vernon has lost a real cheerleader.
