Charlotte Lewis Obituary, Death – Charlotte Ann Lewis, age 82, passed away on Sunday, November 27, 2022, at her home in the company of her devoted family members. She had been a part of the South Glens Falls neighborhood for a significant amount of time. She received her diploma from South Glens Falls High School and, shortly after, married the man who would become the love of her life. Arthur James Lewis, who passed away on September 14, 2006, was her husband. Together, they established a life and a legacy for their family.
They were joint owners of Lewis Trucking and business partners in the Buckhorn Lodge in Indian Lake throughout their time together. When she was helping other people, Charlotte felt the most fulfilled. After exhausting days spent in the wilderness, she would spend her time at the lodge tending to and feeding anything from 25 to 40 famished hunters. Prior to her retirement, Charlotte worked as a one-on-one aid for elementary school kids in South Glens Falls. She had previously had positions at AT&T and the Moreau Community Center, as well as having driven school buses for the South Glens Falls School District.
Camping, traveling to Alaska, Wyoming, and Florida, and New York State salmon fishing on her boat “Princess Lottie” were some of her favorite things to do in her spare time. During her golden years, she delighted in playing with her great grandchildren and watching Wheel of Fortune with her two cherished cats, Arthur and Olivia, while they snacked on her pepperoni and crackers. She also treasured the time she got to spend with her family.
Everyone whose life was improved by Charlotte will remember her fondly for the rest of their lives as a woman who loved the Lord and was kind, loving, and inviting to all. A wonderful hoax or a “Boo” played from behind a door on all of her children in order to make them laugh and have a good time. Her daughter, Karen Mildred, and her son in husband, Jugger, are the ones who are left to preserve her memories. She felt an amazing amount of pride for her family, and they are the ones who are still around. C
harlotte, also known as Gogg or Grammy to her grandchildren, showered her affection on each of them in a variety of different ways. Adirondack camping trips, cannon balls off the diving board for four generations, going along in pranks, playing cards, school obligations, and all kinds of pretend play with sister Adaline, she has done it all. Charlotte, Grammy’s closest friend, was her angel baby when she was a child. In addition, the fact that she had sleepovers for them and took them to the dollar store helped pave the way for her to become the most fun great-gram ever.
Lucy Claire, who named her grandmother “Lottie,” enjoyed eating her special “Lottie cookies” (Chips-a-hoy) and singing crazy songs with her grandmother while wearing their unicorn headbands. Lucy Claire gave her grandmother the nickname “Lottie.” Lucy was referred to by her grandmother as her “little spit fire. It was definitely a gift from God that Grammy was able to be here to love on William John and Waylon Jonah, and oh, how much she adored those little boys. As they get older, the boys and girls will have a lot of fun stories to talk about with one another.
