Charlotte loved driving a school bus for Michigan City Area Schools for 14 years. She enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She also loved going to lunch with her family and friends. She enjoyed shopping, crocheting, working with her flowers and riding with her husband on his motorcycle whenever possible. She loved her church and church family. She enjoyed being involved in Sunday School and the Drama Club at her church. She also had a very “special” friend in her baby dog Zoey.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, any contributions may be made to her family.
