After retirement, Charlotte and Wayne spent their winters in Texas and Florida. She loved fishing, camping, and swimming as well as riding ATVs and Pontoons. Charlotte loved walking on the beach and dancing the night away to her favorite bands. She enjoyed watching her grandchildren in all their sporting activities. We will miss her cheering and whistling in the stands. You could hear her before you could see her. Charlotte was a problem solver who was caring and protective of her family.
