As an avid outdoorswoman, she embraced a variety of activities in nature. Carlotta enjoyed her career as an early childhood educator, and devoted herself to the St. Stephen’s Church choir. She will be remembered as a wonderful housewife, loving mother, and adoring grandmother.

She will be greatly missed by her brother Chuck, daughters, Ellen (Paul), Carla (Matt), Suzanne (Tony), Rosemary (David), her 21 loving grandchildren, 19 great-grandchildren, and 2 great-great-grandchildren.
