My family and I are so saddened by the news of Charlotte’s passing though we are thankful she is no longer suffering and is with the Lord. We knew her through church and knew her as a very kind, genuine, and precious woman. Our hearts and prayers are with the family during this difficult time.
Charlotte was a dear family friend. Because of her overflowing bigheartedness I had a beautiful wedding dress on my wedding day! It was my “something borrowed” and I will always treasure that memory. I will always remember Charlotte as the sweet and fun loving lady that she was! Her smile and sense of humor will be dearly missed.
Charlotte was a dear friend and a joy to call a friend. She had a deep Love for Jesus and served him with passion and commitment. She loved to read especially her Bible. I will miss her greatly but I know she is with her savior and experiencing untold joy.
My heart goes out to her family and your in my prayers.
So very sorry to hear of Charlotte's passing... My thoughts and prayers are with the family. RIP Mama Zahn... XOxoXO
We first met Charlotte in Heber when Buck was pastor and then at West Valley we reconnected. Since then we had lunch often. May God bless you and keep you. May His face shine upon you and be gracious to you. May He give you peace and comfort.
