MONTPELIER — Charlotte Miller Karr passed away peacefully at her home with her family at her side on the morning of Oct. 25, 2013.
Charlotte was born in Montpelier on Sept. 24, 1919, at Heaton Hospital.
A life-long resident of Montpelier, she graduated from high school in Montpelier and went on to graduate Phi Beta Kappa from Middlebury College in 1941.
Most of her work life was spent as a librarian, first in the public school system and then many years as a State of Vermont state librarian, until her retirement in 1990.
She was an enthusiastic and active member of Montpelier Theatre Guild for nearly 40 years and a devoted participant in many civic activities and organizations. She was also a life-long and active member of the Unitarian Church of Montpelier.
Her most outstanding passions, in addition to her many volunteer activities, were spending time at the family cottage on the seashore near Old Orchard Beach, theater and plays, classical music, and lots and lots of books.
She will be sorely missed by her family and her many friends and acquaintances.
She is predeceased by her husband, Prentiss Karr of Montpelier, and her brother, Evan Miller of Montpelier. She is survived by her four children: Pam Karr and her husband, Albert Loranger of Colchester, twins Chris and Curtis Karr of Montpelier, and Wendy Karr of Moretown. She is also survived by her brother, Sheldon Miller and his wife, Sybil of Calais, and her beloved sister-in-law, Gloria Miller of Montpelier.
Following her wishes, there will be no calling hours or services.
For those who wish, contributions in Charlotte’s memory may be made to Central Vermont Home Health & Hospice, Inc., 600 Granger Road, Barre, VT 05641.
