Charlotte was a dear friend of my mom, Octavie Tobin , and a relative of my father ,Clayton Tobin, and a telephone friend of myself, Patricia Tobin Lopinski, of NJ. We always enjoyed dinners at her place, she was a wonderful cook. She was a beautiful person inside and out, and will be greatly missed. My condolences to the family.

18 months ago, when our mother was admitted to Parkland at the Gardens, Charlotte and her dear friend Anne Bradshaw took Mom under her wing, making her feel welcome and helping her integrate into her new surroundings. she did this naturally, without any encouragement from anyone, clearly demonstrating a compassionate and generous heart. From the moment I met Charlotte, I was drawn to her brilliant smile, kind words, her gentle and genuine nature. She will be desperately missed by her friends and the staff at Parkland. Please accept my sincerest condolences on behalf of my mother and me.
