She was predeceased by her parents Francis and Mary (Neader) Strahler of Marietta, OH, sister Marilyn and her husband James of Waterville, OH, brother in law Gary Thomas of Marietta, OH, James Rogers of Essex Center, VT, and mother in law Dorothy of Jericho, VT.

Charlotte was born in Marietta, OH on December 6, 1944 and moved to VT in 1970 with her sister Joanne, where she began her calling as a registered nurse serving for 33 years at the VT-NH Red Cross, followed by 6 ½ years at St. Francis School, where she cherished each day comforting the students and staff.
