    Charlotte was the proud daughter of a Navy Lieutenant Commander and was able to travel and live-in multiple states around the country and had many great experiences along the way. Upon her father’s retirement from the Navy her family settled in Hooper Utah. Charlotte was the oldest of 4 children and she took pleasure in helping her mother take care of the family while her father was away on assignment overseas. Charlotte and David met at an LDS singles dance and were married just a few months after on November 11, 1977. Charlotte's love for children gave her an opportunity to work in childcare for over 40 years. Charlotte is still in contact with many of the children she cared for that are now adults with their own children that she also had the pleasure of caring for. Anytime she made a new friend she made that friendship last forever. Charlotte’s passion was shopping and finding those unique gifts for her friends and family. She was a creative, fun, loving, and generous person who enjoyed swimming, dancing, crossword puzzles, and a good bargain. Charlotte loved family time, from Sunday bar be ques to camping trips, it was what she looked most forward to. Charlotte would do anything for anyone. She absolutely loved all the holidays and making memories with her family.

    Charlotte was a cancer survivor, a fighter, and would not let anything keep her down.

    Charlotte will be greatly missed by all the lives she has touched.

    We are so sorry for your loss! We have known Char probably 25 plus years. As preschool photographers we worked closely with her photographing all of little ones she cared for as the Director. She is one of the most caring & compassionate individuals that we know.
    A friendly person willing to go out of her way to make others feel warm and welcome. She was exceptional at her job. A happy person to be around, that was always organized. Heaven gained an angel. Though you miss her, I know you haven’t lost her. She will look over you & you will feel of presence, she will be your guardian angel & soon you will be rejoined with her again.
    May God bless & comfort you at this time!
    Love, The Warnick’s.

    Hummell family,

    So sorry for your loss! Love your family so much! Sending hugs, love and prayers for your family!

    Words can express the sadness I feel in hearing of the loss of Charlotte. She was a great friend to us and also tended our children when they were young. They loved going to her house and loved her. When they moved Charlotte and I would get together while our husband went deer and elk hunting. We had many great times with the kids including sleep overs. She did have the biggest heart and would help anyone.
    Our thoughts and prayers will be with Dave, Justin, Brooke and Stacey during this difficult time. Just remember she is always in your heart. Take Care.

    Billy, Patti, Jason & Nick

    - Kuhn Family

    I would like to express my sincere sympathy to Char's family. Char was one of my daughter Lola's most favorite people in the world. Char had helped care for her from the time she was 8 weeks old and was such a key person in her life...spending more of her waking hours with her than her Dad and I were able to. It's really hard to walk into the daycare now and not see her sitting there....she will be greatly missed.
