Camping with her family gave life-long enjoyment and led to a grand RV adventure across the United States. She found a passion for Arizona and returned with Bob for many years to winter there. Charlotte especially enjoyed her grandchildren and great grandchildren and smiled when seeing them even when she could no longer enjoy talking with them.
