In addition to raising her family, Charlotte was a dog lover and had several dogs throughout her life: Lady Jane, Penny, Cindy, and Tammy. Charlotte loved to spend time at her cottage in Lake Geneva, WI.  Summers were spent up there going to sidewalk sales, drive-in movies, and playing cards and dominos with her family. Charlotte was a huge fan of Lawrence Welk and her soap operas “stories”, daily activities often revolved around her tv schedule.  She was a member of the American Legion and belonged to various other clubs throughout her life.  Sundays were always spent at her house having a large dinner and gathering.  She was a loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother and will live on through all our fond memories.

Charlotte is survived by her children Gail Sawdey, James (Therese) Laskowski and Larry (Brenda) Laskowski; Grandchildren; Laura (Jason) Lundstrom, Caryn (Joseph) Cirone, Joseph Laskowski, and Susan Laskowski; Great grandchildren; Emma, Kyler, Braxton, and Nolan; Cousin; Arline Vullmahn.
