At the age of 87, Charlotte passed away peacefully in her home. Charlotte was born in Chicago, Illinois on February 15, 1930 into what became a very large and loving family, being one of nine children. She carried that love on her entire life with her own family and friends. She was always ready to help anyone who needed it. Charlotte had several hobbies including knitting and crocheting which she passed on to many, including a number of her kids, grandkids and great-grandkids. She also loved traveling, and saw many exotic places in her various and exciting travels! Reading the Chicago Tribune and completing the crossword puzzle was one of her favorite things to do! Charlotte loved the Chicago Cubs and was so happy to see them win the World Series last year after 108 years! Most importantly though was her love of all the grand and great-grandchildren in her life. Charlotte is survived by her 6 children, Gail L. (Mike) Morgan, Cheryl L. Dull, Greg S. Warner, A. Christine (James) Loo, Diana M. Holland and Mary S. (Anthony) DePesa; two brothers, Charley and Donald Whittle; three sisters, Lillian Rinearson, Mary Irene Stonis, and Shiela Milton and too many grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces and nephews to count.
