Charlotte spent most of her life caring for others. She worked as a nurse’s assistant for many years. After nursing, her passion was taking care of the elderly and fostering special needs children. It was not surprising that most of her family and friends referred to her as “mom”. Charlotte had a true heart of gold.
She was preceded in death by her husband, James D. “Pappy” Green; her parents, John E. and Florence, nee Oaks, Schaefer; her daughter, Sharon Hampton; three sisters, Florence Travis, Virginia Jaco, Carol Neely; and two brothers, John Schaefer, and Frank Schaefer.
She is survived by her son, Monty (Kim) Powers of Smithton, IL;
two sisters, Veramae Emmond of Poplar Bluff, MO, and Marge Pettway of Austin TX;
five grandchildren, Billy (Tammy) Powers of Smithton, IL, Tara Hayden of Keller, TX, Charles Hampton Jr. of Caseyville, IL, Daren Powers of Smithton, IL, and Monica (Joshua) Henry of Smithton, IL;
five greatgrandchildren, Austin Compton, Joshua Compton, Payton Powers, Bryce Powers, and Lilynn Henry;
and many nieces and nephews.
The family would like to thank the staff at the Swansea Rehabilitation and Health Care Center for their excellent care for Charlotte.
Memorials may be made to Vitas Hospice. Condolences may be expressed online at www.rennerfh.com.
According to Charlotte’s wishes her remains were donated to Saint Louis University School of Medicine.
