Before moving to Shipley Manor in 2011, Charlotte resided in her home, in Woodcrest, near Conrad High School, which her husband, Nathan III, built for her and their sons, Nathan and Peter, in 1950.

Charlotte loved to travel, play cards, dance, and tell stories about her early days in Newark and Wilmington. She was especially fond of reminiscing about how her father, Price Jackson, and mother Cora struggled, but persevered in maintaining their family by sewing, cleaning, and working in the shipyards at Edgemoor, and weaving mills in Newark. After retirement from nursing, Charlotte spent countless hours volunteering her services as a tutor and mentor to middle school children. In her later years, she found great joy visiting with her grandchildren and great grandchildren, reading them classic children stories, adding her own humorous interpretations, and watching them play.
