Charlotte Carpenter

She slipped peacefully into God’s arms on Sunday, Sept. 30, 2018.

Preceding her in death was her husband Donald (2005) who will be laid to rest beside her.

Also, her daughter Pattie who left us in 2002. Surviving children are Robert Carpenter (Sherry), Pamela Carpenter (Fred) and Sheila Carpenter (Terry), six grandchildren, 11 great grandchildren, one sister.

Charlotte was a loving wife for 59 years and loved being with her family, cooking, sewing and tending to her beautiful flowers. We could not have asked for a more loving mother. She will be greatly missed, but in our hearts forever. A private graveside service will be on Wednesday, Oct. 3, 2018. In lieu of flowers, donations to Caring Circle Hospice would be greatly appreciated.
