Charlotte Rose (Kline) Warshaver Dokton
January 12, 1921 – March 22, 2020
Charlotte Warshaver Dokton entered into rest on March 22 ,2020 at the age of 99 at Chestnut Park at Cleveland Circle in Boston. Born January 12, 1921 in Boston to the late Abraham and Lena [Leavitt] Kline and younger sister to her brother Milton Kline. Charlotte loved to talk about and reminisce about growing up and going to school in the Roxbury-Dorchester community of Boston where she made many life long friends.
Beloved wife of the late Milton Warshaver for 28 years from their marriage in 1942 until Milton's death in 1970. Together, they raised their three children in Newton, MA and Wayland, MA. Devoted mother of Gerry and Lillian Warshaver of New York, NY; Candy and Dr. Stanley Glazer of Longmeadow, MA; and the late Judy, survived by her husband, Ken Shapiro of Ashfield, MA. One of the greatest joys of Charlotte’s life was her family and being called "Nanny" by her five grandchildren: Rachel and her husband Michael Gustat of Needham, MA; Michael Glazer and his wife Melissa Rappaport of Los Angeles, CA; Laura and her husband Dr. James Gebhardt of Longmeadow, MA; Dr. Yemina Warshaver of New York, NY; and Logan Shapiro of Northampton, MA; and her nine great-grandchildren: Edgar, Marin, and Scout Gebhardt, Sam and Abby Gustat, Axwell Glazer; and Sylvi, Sam, and Zack Stein. In 1973, she married Bernie Dokton and they had 21 happy years together enjoying living at Indian Spring Country Club in Boynton Beach, Florida. Charlotte was very social and enjoyed hosting celebrations and events for her many friends and especially family. She especially looked forward to the many family vacations spent together.
When we think about "Nanny", her attention to style and "dressing to the nines" throughout her entire life was her trademark. She loved history and always kept up with current events. Some of her many other interests include being an avid reader, doing crossword puzzles, playing bridge, and staying up until the wee hours of the night watching her favorite television shows.
Charlotte was the proud matriarch of the family. We are grateful for her long healthy life and she will be deeply missed and loved by all of us.
Due to current concerns for everyone's health, a private graveside service is planned at Mishkan Tefila Memorial Park. A celebration of Charlotte's life will take place at a later date.
