Charlotte Ann Hafner passed away on Wednesday, June 28, 2017 at a care center in Ocala, Florida. She was born in the remote community of Delta, Wisconsin on January 18, 1924. After two years in this northern climate, the family returned to Missouri and resided on a farm near Mexico. In 1938, they moved to Vandalia where Charlotte attended Vandalia High School. After graduation, she attended the University of Missouri at Columbia for two years. Surrounded by the need for a World War II work force, she joined the United States Steel Corporation at their Chicago office. A year later she transferred to their St. Louis office and remained there until her retirement. Charlotte was a faithful, long-time member of the Westminster Presbyterian Church on Delmar Street in University City. In later years, she became a member of the PEO, which she very much enjoyed. As a loyal fan of the St. Louis Cardinals baseball team, she listened to many, many of their radio broadcasts.
Born: January 18, 1924 in Delta, Wisconsin, the daughter of Walter J. and Ruth (Kerr) Hafner.
Survivors include: one brother, Kerwin Hafner (BJ) of Ocala, Florida; two nephews: Scott Hafner (Margaret) of Athens, Georgia; Steve Hafner (Cydney) of Jupiter, Florida; two grand-nephews: Mark Hafner (Samantha) of Frederick, Maryland; Eric Hafner (Jennifer) of Phoenix, Arizona; two grand-nieces: Sarah Hafner of Alexandria, Virginia and Lesley Maturo (Anthony) also of Phoenix; one great-grand-nephew, Joe Maturo and three great-grand-nieces: Rylee Hafner, Sammie Hafner and Jacquie Maturo, all of Phoenix.
