On November 1, 2019, Charlotte was promoted to glory after a year’s battle with brain cancer. Her medical care included periods at Condell Medical Center, Lutheran General Hospital, Shirley Ryan AbilityLab, Lurie Children’s Hospital, Northwestern Medicine Chicago Proton Center and Nationwide Children’s Hospital. During her treatment, she never lost her spirit or smile and consistently sang with the hospitals’ music therapists. Wherever she went she had something to share with medical staff that made a positive and thoughtful impression.

.

Charlotte was a dual-language student at West Oak Middle School where she was a member of the cross-country team, broadcasting club and choir. She was also a member of the IGLA Lacrosse League. She loved competing as a runner in pacer tests and cross-country races where she had begun to excel. She was a black belt in Taekwondo and a trained singer, winning first prize multiple times at Illinois Music Association competitions. She spoke Spanish, played piano, loved to tell jokes and read books.

.

Her family, friends and teachers will always remember her for her wit and humor, enthusiasm for learning, her beautiful voice and love of singing, her inspiring smile, her generosity, kindness, and consideration of others. Her inner spirit was strengthened with all might.
