Charlotte was born June 25, 1937 in Mesa, Ariz., to William and Hazel Reynolds Reed. Charlotte was born to a large family with 12 brothers and sisters. She married Lynn Zufelt on March 26, 1955, and they moved around for a while and then settled in Moab.
Although she did not work outside the home and did not gain monumental wealth, her love has helped to raise three generations. She loved Lynn and he loved her, and they raised three good kids. They were taught to respect and love. Charlotte nurtured her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was a phenomenal cook, especially of desserts. The neighbor ladies spent all day Wednesday in her kitchen eating fresh-baked bread and pastries! She also dabbled in needlework.
When the time came, Lynn reached out his hand and carried her hand into eternity to the home he had prepared for them.
She is survived by two daughters, Rhonda Risenhoover of Moab and Vicki Reel of Newberg, Ore.; a son, Bo Zufelt of Moab; two brothers, David Reed of Nucla, Colo., and Doug Reed of Rathdrum, Idaho; 11 grandchildren and 25 great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her husband Lynn, and her parents, and 10 brothers and sisters.
Funeral services were held Wednesday Nov. 21 at noon at the Moab LDS Stake Center, with a viewing one hour prior to the service. Interment was at the Sunset Memorial Gardens Cemetery following the service.
