She grew up in rural Wanamingo, attended country school and ultimately graduated from Wanamingo High School in 1949. During her high school years, Charlotte was a majorette with the Wanamingo marching band. Charlotte and her twin brother, Charles, were the youngest of 4 children. Her twin brother couldn't pronounce "Charlotte", so she became known as "Sissy" to the family.

Over the years, she traveled to Florida, Haiti, Jamaica, Norway and various places in Europe and the U.S. Charlotte really enjoyed music and had a gift to play piano by ear. She was a lifelong member of Emmanuel Lutheran Church of Aspelund.
