Charlotte A. Richardson, 89

Charlotte A. Richardson (nee Newell) age 89, formerly of Grafton, Wis., passed away on Sunday, Oct. 1, 2017, at Country Meadows Care Facility in Lancaster, Pa. She is survived by her husband of 69 years, Preston Jere Richardson, son, Larry (Sue) Richardson of Lititz, Pa., daughter, Vicki (William ‘Buz’) Reed of Cedarburg, Wis., granddaughters, Holly Hutto and Callie Reed (Aaron Seaman), grandson, Tim (Cecilia) Reed, great-grandchildren, Jacqueline (Jon) Horst, Tyler (Emily) Hutto, sisters-in-law, Polly Poulin and Jean Hollis, and nephews and nieces.

Charlotte loved gardening, reading and visits from family and friends who she insisted on feeding whether they were hungry or not. She liked ice cream and happy hour and hated parades. She and Jere volunteered at the Cedarburg Cultural Center and attended Heritage Baptist Church in Grafton. Jere and Charlotte’s devotion and care for each other inspired many at Country Meadows where they lived since 2015. A special thank you goes to the staff at Country Meadows and Grane Hospice who provided loving attention to her and her family and continue their care for Jere.

There will be a private family celebration of her life. Online condolences can be made at Donations in her memory may be made to the Cedarburg Cultural Center, W62 N546 Washington Ave., Cedarburg, WI 53012, or to the Alzheimer’s Association.
