  2. I have so many fun and funny memories of visiting Charlotte’s house. One time, when I was little, I ran right throught her screen door and knocked it off the tracks and she just smiled and laughed-no lecture! :)Charlotte was always talkative and interested in my thoughts and activities. She was a dear friend to my mom. She will be remembered for all her kindness,love, and influence on hundreds of lives.

  5. Mrs. Butler was always loving and kind to me and my sisters, and was a wonderful neighbor to my mother. She was so appreciative of even the smallest kindness, and I know my family will miss her not being across the street, sitting in her chair watching our coming and goings. My deepest sympathy to her loving family and all her friends and neighbors.

  6. To the family of Ms.Charlotte Butler,
    I am presently a teacher at Heaton Middle School who had the privilege of knowing Ms. Butler. She had an open office in the library annex at Heaton where she would always greet everyone with a smile and pleasant conversation. Her dedication to our school was immeasurable. My thoughts are with your family at this sad and difficult time. She will be greatly missed and always remembered.

  7. Gary,
    My deepest condolences to you and your family for your loss, especially at this time of year.
    I remember your mom was always a very nice lady.

  8. Sister Butler was the kindest person that I knew. Sister Butler will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

    My thoughts and prayers goes out to her family, especially being so close to the holidays.

  9. When I was a brand new and overwhelmed mother to my new baby Karen, Charlotte and Claudette showed up at my house and taught me to “swaddle” my baby, they did my dishes, did some laundry and left me calmed. That was 41 years ago and I have often, and still remember the thoughtfulness and kindness. Thank you again, Charlotte.
