Charlotte was born in Harrisburg on February 21, 1930, daughter of the late Paul H. and Verna Rife. Charlotte was a member of the Church of the Open Door and Gideons International Ladies Auxiliary, and the Christian Women’s Club. In her working career, she excelled in administrative positions in accounting, payroll, and human resources. Charlotte loved showing hospitality to others, often welcoming guests into her home and serving delicious meals. She was a giving person, finding ways to meet the practical needs of others in meaningful ways. Charlotte was a lover of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. She faithfully served in numerous positions in her church, having been the church pianist for many years. She also learned how to play the church’s majestic pipe organ, and the sound of the glorious hymns she played resounded through the church sanctuary, leading many into worship. She was a gifted teacher and loved mentoring and imparting God’s Word to her Sunday School class full of teenagers. She was a faithful servant always, trusting in the promises of God for every trial she faced in life. Second only to her love for Jesus Christ was Charlotte’s love for and devotion to her family. She was a loving and fiercely protective mother to her two children, and a faithful wife to her husband, Gene.
