Charlotte E. Altman passed away peacefully April 28th, 2018 at age 77 surrounded by her loving family. She is survived by her beloved granddaughter Jacqueline Coll, children Gail, John III, Sgt. David, William, Cindy, Patricia Lee, Mark and Marie, 19 grandchildren, 26 great grand-children, brother Harvey Chappell and many nieces and nephews.

Charlotte was known as the matriarch in her family; the back-bone that held everyone together. She was extremely kind-hearted, loving and generous with her time and resources with family and those in need. She was the unofficial family seamstress, often weaving garments for her children and grand-children for special occasions. She loved to cook, spend time with her children and grandchildren; especially at “Cowtown” rodeo in Woodstown during the weekends while visiting family nearby. Attending church was also a large part of her life. Charlotte was a true reflection of her strong Christian faith exhibited by her selfless, nurturing compassion she bestowed upon anyone in need.

Family and friends are invited to a Memorial Visitation at BLAKE-DOYLE Funeral Home 226 W. Collings Ave, Collingswood NJ on Friday May 4, 2018 at 11:00am-1:00pm with a Prayer Service to immediately follow at 1:00pm.

Its hard to know your gone physically but with us in spirit. We all can look back on photos and remember the good and funny times. The picture below is from Clementon Amusement Park many years ago of Nanny chilling in the Lazy River. Afterwards we as a Family went on some rides even some laughs and this one was my favorite.
We got on the Balloon Ride, Nanny, Sandra, & me was in one together, not including Nanny but we challenged ourselves to spin the basket as much we could. It worked obviously getting us dizzy, made it worse by getting on the swings. Nanny unfortunately was over on dizzy and showered guests below. We all laughed but, received Nannys favorite saying also, "What ails you Child"
Love Always the Joker

You are and always will be the one I will turn to. You taught me the ways of life. What's wrong and what's right. Tying my shoes before school and making meals every night. Watching me grow up and tending to all my ouchies. Always making sure I was doing what was needed to. Helping with homework. Studying for spelling tests. Teaching me how to wash dishes, fold clothes and properly cleaning my room. You washed my hair and listen to me complain about how it hurt while you brushed out the knots. You watched me walk and receive my 12th grade graduation diploma. The smile on your face as you seen me come home after my first day at my first job at 14. Cuddling at night as you then would send me to bed once my eyes started to close. The list could go on. Everything reminds me of you. Gone but not forgotten. Peacefully now resting with your friends and family who have also gained their wings. Tears flows and smiles will grow with every loving memory in all of our hearts that we share amongst the world. Our hearts will always be together! My love! My world! My everything! My Nana Banana!
- Your little Jessie ❤

When someone you love dies....
you never quite get over it.

You just slowly learn how to
go on without them,
But always keeping them
tucked safely in your heart.

Mom will always be remembered,
a special place in my heart. I love you.
