March 11, 1934 – Carteret, NJ
March 19, 2014 – Calgary, AB
On Wednesday, March 19, 2014, Charlotte Irmgard Bachelor died peacefully at Mayfair Care Center in Calgary, Alberta, Canada at the age of 80 years.
Charlotte was born in Carteret, N.J. on May 11, 1934 to Wilhelm and Lotte Kling. She graduated from Carteret High School in 1952 and then from the Latin American Institute in New York City. Always active in music and singing, Charlotte enjoyed accompanying her high school a cappela choir and participated in many school plays and piano performances. This love of music continued throughout her life as she enjoyed playing music with family and friends, often attending the many musical offerings throughout Calgary and area. Looking for a new challenge, Charlotte became a certified German-English translator in the mid-90s and was an officer in the Association Of Translators & Interpreters Of Alberta (ATIA).
Charlotte was an avid hiker, cross-country skier and folk-dancer. She will be remembered for her curiosity, love of learning, language and music as well as her wonderful sense of humour. She was completely devoted to her family, and was a fabulous hostess and perfect guest. Most of all, she was the best wife, sister, mother, grandmother and friend.
Charlotte is survived by Frank, her husband of 58 years; her sister Joyce; her three children, Karolyn, Rod and Suzanne; and 3 grandchildren, Emma, Kevin and Danielle. A private Celebration of Life ceremony will be held for Charlotte in June. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
