Charlotte Arissa Remington, 99, of Tunkhannock passed away Monday, July 3, 2023 at Gracious Living Estates, Montrose.
Born on December 27, 1923, she is the daughter of the late Frank and Celinda Junk Pond. She was preceded in death by her husband, Paul J. Remington in 1987.
She had a deep love for gardening. The vibrant colors of bright pink, purple, and yellow flowers were her favorites, and she transformed her own backyard into a vibrant oasis. The sight of blooming flowers brought her joy and brought happiness to those who visited. Charlotte found solace in her love for watching birds. With a keen eye and attentive ear, she would spend countless hours observing those that visited her garden.
In addition to gardening, Charlotte found immense pleasure in various handicrafts. Crocheting and quilting were her creative outlets that allowed her imagination to flourish. Charlotte was a regular at the Senior Center for many years where she formed lifelong friendships. The lively game of bingo was one of her passions, always bringing excitement and laughter into her life.
