In addition, Charlotte was the loving grandmother to Rachel Weingart and Herschel Nathan.
Charlotte, a native of Pittsburgh, earned her degree in education from the University of Pittsburgh where she met her future husband. They began dating after Charlotte invited Saul to a Sadie Hawkins dance but their wedding had to wait until Saul returned from serving overseas in the army during the Korean War. Charlotte worked as a public-school teacher and also taught Sunday School. Later, Charlotte worked alongside her husband managing his orthodontic practice. After Saul’s retirement the couple moved to the Chicago area to be closer to their children and grandchildren. In 2012 Charlotte and Saul were pleased to fulfill a lifelong dream of visiting Israel together.
The family has asked that in Charlotte’s memory donations be made to Jewish Family Service (www.jfshouston.org ), Congregation Emanu El (www.emanuelhouston.org ) or Girls Empowerment Network (www.girlsempowermentnetwork.org) or the charity of their choice.
