It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Charlotte Louisa Englehart at her home in Golden on April 8, with her loving daughters by her side. Born September 26, 1935 at Manns Mountain, New Brunswick.
She is survived by her daughters who were her best friends – Lori (Elio) Formenti, Patti (Bryce) Piggot, her daughter-in-law Janice Englehart and sister, Patti (Phil) Hepditch. She has six devoted grandchildren, Jaime, Jay, Shawn, Andrew, Colin and Calli and five great grandchildren that adored their GG. Charlotte also has several nieces and nephews who loved their “Aunt Pooney”. Charlotte was predeceased by her husband Vernon, her loving son Bryan, parents Pat and Queenie Chesser, five brothers and one sister.
Filled with compassion and fun, Charlotte made friends easily and was loved by many. She started her career as a teacher and finished it as an OR Technician at the Golden hospital retiring in 1993. She moved to Cranbrook, BC and then returned to Golden in 2011 to be with her girls, leaving behind wonderful friendships and memories.
Charlotte was an active member of the Quilters Guild in Golden and treasured her times spent with her quilting family.
A celebration of life of our beloved mother will be held on April 17, 2015 at 11:00 a.m. at the Golden Seniors Centre.
In Charlotte’s memory donations can be made to the Magic Mountain Quilting Guild to purchase supplies for quilts that will bring comfort to others:
