I will miss my Sister-in-law Charlotte very much. In 2007 I was having my own mid-life crisis and she and my brother Bill became my legal guardians, along with my brother Howard and his wife Claudia Delli. Charlotte was the legal-eagle of our family. At Christmas she and Bill and their two sons would come to visit with my parents. I did not go to Georgia to see them very often. I enjoyed spending time with her and will miss her very much. Love you Charlotte. Patricia Miller (Candy)

We were well acquainted with Charlotte and Bill through our membership in the N. GA Chapter of the Studebaker Driver's Club. Charlotte was a good friend and excellent organizer when it came to club functions and initiatives. She held many key offices in the club over the years and could be always be counted on 100% when she accepted any assignment or task. We will miss Charlotte greatly and our thoughts are with Bill and his family. Bill, we hope to see you at an SDC meeting again soon! Ben & Janet Alspach

I was president of the FL Gainesville Chapter of SDC when Charlotte and Bill were very active members. Both my husband, Don, and I have fond memories of Charlotte as she was a loving and caring person. One of my treasured mementos was given to me by Charlotte. My Studebaker truck is red, white, and blue and Charlotte surprised me with a special coin from the War College. And who could ever forget the scavenger hunts she and Bill organized for our club. My thoughts and prayers and are with Bill and family. In God's Love, Edith Fifer
