Aug. 16, 1923 — June 23, 2018
Charlotte Fitch was born in Portland, Oregon, to George and Marie Feyerabend. The family, including her older sister, Virginia, spent years in Portland; Dayton, Ohio; and Southern California.
Charlotte graduated from Grant High School, completed business classes in Portland, and then went on to graduate in 1947 from Oregon State College in secretarial science. She married Dale Fitch that same year. They lived in Eugene, Santa Barbara, Salem and Coos Bay.
She enjoyed playing golf, sailing at the Coos Bay Yacht club, and traveling in the 1931 Model A with the
local Model A club. After their divorce, she continued to tour in the car with the Eugene Model A club all over the Northwest.
She worked for the Coos-Curry Council of Governments, Weyerhaeuser Springfield, and the University of Oregon. She was a student of Christian Science and of The Infinite Way.
She is survived by her sons, Bill and David, of Astoria; daughter-in-law, Beth Fitch; and grandchildren, Amelia and Tristan.
A small family service was held at the Columbia River near Mill Pond, where she liked to sit. She was grateful to remain in her apartment for the six years she lived in Astoria, and to watch the ships on the river.
