She was also fondly known as Sister Friendly, Aunt Charlotte, Grandma “Silly” and Pete. She loved cooking, sewing, canning, riding motorcycles, gardening, camping, playing the piano by ear, harmonizing, playing with her grandkids often floating the canal and jumping on the trampoline. She was always fun to be around and up for any adventure. She loved going out on “Trouble” with Bob on the Rio Grande Railroad. She had a huge imagination and was a gifted poet. She told many stories about growing up in the Henry Mountains. Her laugh was contagious, her energy endless and her compassion never-ending.
