Charlotte worked for 30 years as the Secretary of Taft High School. After retiring, Charlotte and George, as well as their dear friend Marcy Taylor, started worldwide traveling. Their adventures included traveling to China, Kenya, Spain, Mexico, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Australia, New Zealand, Russia, Hong Kong, Argentina, Tahiti, Panama, Fiji, Chile, Greece, Israel, Turkey, Canada, and the majority of the United States. Georg and Charlotte also enjoyed many trips to their second home in Yuma, Arizona, spending time with Don and Dena.
Charlotte and George lived on the Siletz river, where they raised their four boys. Their home was only accessible by boat, which made raising cattle quite the adventure at times.
In addition to jet-setting, Charlotte enjoyed gardening and reading; and was active in the community, volunteering at Driftwood public Library and with Hospice. There will be a private family memorial.
