Charlotte Astle, 77, completed her long goodbye and bid her final farewell as she slipped the bonds of earth on October 9, 2023, in Hyde Park, UT surrounded in love by her children.
She was born Charlotte Christina Poulson on March 18, 1946, in Provo, UT. She was the third and youngest child of Virginia Bird Booth and Leo Alma Poulson. She graduated from Orem High School in 1964 and attended Utah Trade Technical School At Provo, graduating in 1966 with a Certificate in Dental Assisting. She then attended Utah State University where she met her sweetheart, Dale Astle. They were married in the Salt Lake Temple on September 8, 1967. They lived in Logan UT, Los Angeles CA, and Orem UT before permanently settling in Providence UT to raise their family.
Charotte wanted nothing more than to be a mother. She adored her children and supported them in all they did. She led in Cub Scouts and 4-H, joined the PTA, and served in Primary. She drove to practices and games and performances at all hours and in all weather. She was talented and creative. She sewed Halloween costumes and prom dresses and easter bonnets. She produced cross-stich and baby blankets. She taught her children how to make the best chocolate chip cookies in the world and made award winning pies. She worked at the Adult Day Center at Sunshine Terrace when it first opened as a CNA, lovingly providing her clients dignity of life in their twilight. She loved her community.
She served in many callings in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. She threw herself into decorating for the holidays and hosting family meals. She took pride in her yard and grew beautiful flowers. In retirement she and Dale travelled often and spent as much time doting over their grandchildren as they could, welcoming each addition with joyful abandon as the family grew. She loved her grandchildren almost more than her children and delighted in each and every one of them.
Charlotte is preceded in death by her parents, brother, Lynn, and husband. She will be grieved by her four children, Cathie (Shane) Parker of Logan, Robert (Aleena) Astle of River Heights, Christina (Royce) Beal of Bear River City, and James (Jeannie) Astle of Millville. 10 Grandchildren Chayden (Jaiden), Leo, Ethan, McKelty, Ryan, David, Alex, Wyatt, Cassidy, and Jacob and 2 great-grandchildren, Jacklynn and Nolan, and her sister, Karma Swain.
The family would like to express thanks for the loving and professional care the staff of Autumn Care Assisted Living and Memory Care provided Charlotte over the past year and Symbii Hospice for their exceptional service during the last months of her life.
Funeral services will be held at 12:00 p.m. on Friday, October 13, 2023, a date she would have heartly approved of, at the Fox Ridge Ward House 155 N 100 E Providence, UT. Visitation for family and friends will be held that same day from 10:00 -11:30 prior to the funeral services. Burial will be at the Providence Cemetery. In lieu of flowers the family suggests a donation to the University of Utah Aging Brain Care Program.
