My sincere sympathy to Eric and Paul in the loss of your beautiful mother. She was a beloved "aunt" to our family as she was good friends with our parents, Elwin and Vivian Rose, for many, many years. I believe Mom considered Charlotte her best friend and Dad shared many school board experiences with Charlotte over their long tenure on the Board. Heaven has truly gained an angel.

The Earthly world has lost a a truly great person. It was my pleasure to have served with Charlotte for many years on school board. Her concern for others especially the students of the school district was never in doubt. May His Peace be with us in this time of sorrow Kerry Duncan
