Charlotte Gaulin


HUDSON FALLS – It is with great sorrow that the family of Charlotte Gaulin, 89, has to announce her returning to the arms of our Lord, on July 12, 2014, after a long convalescence.

A life-long resident of Washington County, she was born Charlotte Marie Lewis, daughter of Ava LaFarr and Everett Lewis of Fort Edward and grew up on McCrea Street there with her two brothers, Robert Lewis and Donald Lewis, the latter of whom passed away four years ago.

After graduating from Fort Edward High School she married her husband of 70 years, Lester Gaulin, and moved to School Street in Hudson Falls, where they raised a family of four boys: James, Thomas, Keith, and David, all of whom still live in this area with the exception of David who lives in Boston. While raising her family she occasionally took employment at General Electric, the First National Bank, the Pender-Towley Shop and the Fort Hudson Nursing Home.

Besides her children and husband, she is also survived by her five grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren and was greatly loved by all of her family. Having been surrounded by males her entire life, she was particularly fond of her daughter in law, Susan Gaulin, who brought her much comfort over the final years of her life and became the confidant she had never had.   She is also survived by her beloved sisters in law, Therese Lewis of Fort Edward, now living in New Jersey, and Fannie Gaulin of Hudson Falls and their six and five children respectively.

In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that any donations be made in her name to the Fort Edward Rescue Squad, P.O. Box 226, Fort Edward, New York 12828.

It was Charlotte’s wish to be cremated and although there will be no wake or funeral, a graveside ceremony will be held at the Saratoga National Cemetery in the town of Stillwater at a later date.

We rejoice that she is now in Heaven with her brother and parents and although it is hard to imagine life without her we are consoled in the knowledge that she was surrounded by family and love until her last breath. May she rest in peace.
