Remembering Charlotte In Monon

February 5th, 2013 at 11:15 pm by under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog

Charlotte in Monon passed away suddenly Monday evening at the age of 79.

Charlotte was a valuable & very dedicated weather spotter & observer for White County.  I could always count on her rainfall, snowfall totals & high & low temperatures at Monon nearly every day.  She & I, being nature lovers, chatted via email about the birds, first mushrooms, gardens & plants many times over the over 4 years I have been here.

I will miss her kindness, dedication, love of weather & nature & pics.

Thoughts & prayers go to her family & friends, specifically her husband Gene.  Thank you to her son Keith for letting us know about her passing Monday evening very suddenly.

We are all a weather family here & when we loose one of our dedicated spotters, it is hard, as we all get to know each other here & share the same love & passion for our variable Hoosier weather year after year.
