In Memory

Charlotte Bethge (Meyer)

Charlotte Anna Bethge Meyer was born on April 28, 1947 to Otto and Helen Bethge, in Huntington Long Island, New York.  She passed away on January 21, 2010.  She spent the first 12 years of her life in New York, moving with her family to Phoenix, AZ, in 1960.  She attended Camelback High, then went on to UofA.  In 1971 she married John L. Meyer and was mother to two beautiful daughters.  She worked as an operator at the Phone Company, finally retiring from the US Postal Service in 2006.  Charlotte was a presence, her laugh contagious.  When she entered a room she did so with gusto and a huge smile.  She was a warm, generous loving person who would do anything to help someone she loved, or even a stranger.  She will be missed by many people, too numerous to count.  Charlotte is survived by her daughters Erika Meyer and Jaime Murphy, brother Peter Bethge and sister Carin Brauer.  The family asks that in lieu flowers, donations be made to Hospice of the Valley.
