Charlotte Marie Chavez, 62, passed away on July 6, 2017, in Roswell, New Mexico. Charlotte was born on August 16, 1954, in Santa Rosa, New Mexico, to Santiago and Frances Romero.
Charlotte married her high school sweetheart, Roberto G. Chavez, on June 26, 1971. Together they had two children: Betty Renee and Robert Enrico.
Their lives together took them to El Paso, TX, as well as Green River and Rock Springs, WY. They later settled in Roswell, NM, in the fall 1980, where they made their permanent home. Charlotte spent her early years as a homemaker and mother. As her children reached adulthood, she worked as religious education director for St. Peter’s and St. John’s. Later, she worked as an assistant manager at Sears. She eventually settled into retirement with her husband.

Charlotte loved to be surrounded by family and was happiest when her friends and family filled her kitchen. Together, Charlotte and her husband, Robert enjoyed camping and traveling to see their grandchildren. She had a great sense of humor and leaves us with countless stories and memories filled with laughter.
“Even in her most vulnerable moments she remained the strongest person I have ever met. Now she gets to be happy and free. Thank you for loving us enough to hold on for so long. Thank you for making tortillas. Thank you for giving us too much sugar. Thank you for showing us how to have a good sense of humor, and thank you for giving us so many stories. Rest easy, grandma. We love you forever.”
