Family and friends were very important to her. She also was very involved in her grandchildren's lives when they were growing up and was excited to be a great-grandma and spending time with her great-grandson.
Charlotte enjoyed crocheting blankets for her family and making doll clothing and doing crafts. She also gathered several small collections of things during the years, bells and bears and music boxes. When health allowed, she was very active in her church and loved singing at the church.
Survivors include her husband of 56 years, Bobby; daughters, Malora (Kevin) Redman, Port Byron, and Deborah Underwood, East Moline; grandchildren, Lee Aaron Redman, Lisa (Nathan) Kitt, Jessica Underwood and Greg (Nikki) Franks; great-grandson, Hunter Rex Kitt; sister, Dolores (Bill) Brandon, Jackson; nephew, Terry Brandon; numerous other nieces and nephews; and her beloved dog, Inky.
