  1. I had the opportunity to work with Charlotte at AISD during the 90’s. She was a dedicated professional and a pleasure to work with. Sorry to hear of her passing. Cynthia Becker

  2. Charlotte’s sister, Carol, has been a lifelong friend of mine. I really got to know Charlotte on an Alaskan trip where she carried such a heavy backpack that we dubbed her “The Turtle”. The name stuck, and I think that Charlotte secretly liked it! She was a wonderful person as is her entire family. All of her friends in Memphis are sending our love and prayers to her family. Vicki

  3. Charlotte was a very dear and special friend and I shall always cherish the memory of her kind heart! She and I shared a love of NBA basketball and always enjoyed sharing stories of our favorite teams. We pray for God’s comfort to be with each of you.
