    • OBITUARY- "Obituaries. Charlotte Carr. IRON MOUNTAIN - Charlotte Emma (Wyss) Carr, 82, of Iron Mountain died comfortably in her own home on March 29, 2002, after a long period of ill health. She was born March 14, 1920, to the late Leo W. Wyss Sr. and Ceceil (Johnson) Wyss of Iron Mountain. She graduated from Iron Mountain School in 1937. Charlotte received her bachelor's degree in social work from the University of Michigan and her master's degree from Wayne State University. She did social work for Michigan Children's Aid Society, the Oxford School System and the State of Michigan (in U.P. nursing homes). She married Carl William Carr Jr. on Dec. 31, 1941, and he preceded her in death on Dec. 18, 1997. She was also preceded in death by a son, David Floyd Carr, in March of 1971; and her only sibling, Leo Wyss Jr., in February of 1958. Charlotte is survived by daughter, Carolyn Cornelia Iddings of Kingsford, and daughter and son-in-law, Cynthia Charlotte Carr-Kramer and Peter L. Kramer of Greenfield, Mass.; niece, Pamela Anne (Robert) Foster of Iron Mountain, and three grandchildren, Elizabeth Charlotte Iddings of Kalamazoo, Adam David I. Kramer of Pittsburgh, Pa., and Ethan Carl Kramer of Greenfield. Also surviving are two great nieces, Elizabeth Anne-Louise Foster of Ann Arbor, lower Michigan, and Melissa Dae Foster of Iron Mountain. She will be sadly missed by her loving caretakers of the past two and a half years, Bessie King, Alice Finkler, Michelle Olsen, Sara Johnson, Amber Goulette, Honey Ramsey, Nancy Dalberto, Barb Ruiz and Cathy Bacaik. Charlotte was a member and deacon of the First Presbyterian Church in Kingsford, and a long standing member of the Tuesday Study Club. She belonged to the State of Michigan Retiree's Association. She formed a Friday Ladies Lunch Group with other widowed friends for several years. She and her husband owned a cabin on Bush Lake in Sagola for almost 20 years. They wintered in Yuma, Ariz., after retiring and became very interested in Navajo history and culture. Charlotte travelled to Europe and especially liked Switzerland, the native home of her grandfather, Alfred Wyss. She was an avid reader and member of various book clubs during her life. She liked to swim, snow ski, square dance and golf when she was able. Family and friends were very important to her. There will be no immediate funeral services or visitation. Burial will be in Cemetery Park in Iron Mountain with a graveside service to be set at a later date. The Jacobs Funeral Home of Iron Mountain is in charge of the arrangements. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the First Presbyterian Church, 395 Hamilton Ave., Kingsford or Marquette General Home Health and Hospice, 800 East Boulevard, Kingsford."
