  1. Charlotte was a caring neighbour and friend. Sincere sympathy to charlotte’s family.

  2. I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. Charlotte Lindell was my first instructor when I arrived at Eldorado Cookery (Riedweg Catering) in 1957. She was a very pleasant and warm girl with a beautiful smile and a little shy. She often talked to me about her Swedish father, as I was from Denmark. When she married Alex, we all said what a beautiful couple they would make.. When she expected her first child, she spent some time with my wife in Uranium City to exchange baby talk. We just had our first child there in 1960.

    May she rest in peace.

  3. Our deepest condolences to the family. Charlotte will be truly missed by so many loved ones. So many wonderful childhood memories to keep close to my heart. Prayers to all the family ❤
