Charlotte Ellison Beers
October 13, 1931 – May 15, 2018
Charlotte Ellison Beers, 86, of Lyme CT passed away May 15, 2018 peacefully at home after a long illness. She was born October 13, 1931, the third child of Norman and Elizabeth Ellison and raised in Granby Massachusetts. She was pre-deceased by her brothers Richard and Dean. A graduate of Framingham University, Charlotte taught elementary school in Wethersfield and in Lyme/Old Lyme for over 30 years, and is fondly remembered by many of her students.
She is survived by her husband of 61 years Howard Beers, and their three children: Nancy of Colorado Springs, CO, Gerry & his wife Cynthia of Lyme, and Jim & his beloved Shelley of Lyme. She also leaves three grandchildren, Sam Marshall of Colorado Springs, Kirstin Bibbianni of Portsmouth NH and Samantha Beers of California.
Charlotte will always be remembered for her grace, beauty and dignity. She loved to have fun but never at someone else's expense. Her priorities in life were family, church and community. She had a large circle of friends and was kind and concerned to friend and stranger alike. Her unbounded optimism was one of her many wonderful qualities. Her smiling face will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
A service will be held on Saturday, May 19 2018 at 11:00 AM at Lyme Congregational Church, Hamburg Rd in Lyme, followed by a reception at the Lyme Fire Co, Hamburg station. Interment at Eight Mile River Cemetery will be private. In lieu of flowers, please send a donation to the Lyme Congregational Church in Charlotte's name.
