Charlotte E. Crake

Charlotte E. Crake, 89, died Friday, December 18th, 2020 at her home in Savannah.

Charlotte was born in Koln, Germany on the 20th of January 1931, where she spent her childhood. She emigrated to San Francisco in 1950, and it is there that she met and married her late husband of 56 years, William (Bill) Crake. Together they raised four children, while working and living in the San Francisco Bay Area, Tahiti, Vanuatu, Germany, and New Zealand. They retired to Maui before eventually settling in Savannah, GA. Charlotte enjoyed many years working for the Marin County Health and Sheriff’s Departments, where she made lifelong friends. She loved baking and painting with her grandchildren, and cooking alongside her husband. She was very close to her local, German friends and for many years, enjoyed their monthly Kaffeeklatsch. She was a thoughtful, loyal and steadfast friend, and will be remembered for her extraordinary spirit, sense of humor, and sociable nature. She was a member of St Paul’s Lutheran Church.

Charlotte (Mutti, Oma) was preceded in death by her husband William Crake, her daughter, Lieselotte Parish and grandson, Isaac Parish. She is survived by daughters, Ursula (Chris), Santa Cruz, CA, and Cinnamon, Las Vegas, NV; son William (Jo), Savannah, GA; niece Claudia (Horst); grandchildren, Ruben, Sophie, Lauren, James, and Charlotte; and great grandson, Cameron.

The funeral service will be private.
