Obituaries: Charlotte Forsythe

Charlotte L. Forsythe, 63, of Bloomfield, Iowa passed away January 13, 2017 at the Bloomfield Care Center. She was born on November 21, 1953 in Bloomfield to Gerald LaVern and Nina Marcella Humphreys Forsythe. Charlotte was one of God’s special children who was limited in life skills. She could not verbalize her thoughts and feelings, however, due to her facial expressions and expressive eyes, she was able to get her point across. She loved small children, animals, music, going on car rides, and attending family gatherings.

Charlotte participated at the First Resources Workshop, volunteered at the Davis County Day Care Center and at the Davis County Elementary School where she enjoyed her interactions with the children.

She is survived by her mother, Nina Forsythe of Bloomfield; sisters and brothers, Sandra (Glen) Hubbartt of Glen Carbon, Illinois, Marcella (Tommy) Thompson of Bloomfield, Linda (Melvin) Wilfawn of Fairfield, Iowa, Teresa (Jack) Moss of Bloomfield, Iowa, Nolen (Linda) Forsythe of Oskaloosa, Iowa; and numerous nieces and nephews.
