Her love for life and wonderful smile will be engraved on our hearts forever.

Throughout Charlotte's life she was actively involved in sports playing volleyball, basketball and softball every year from middle school through high school. She was awarded the athlete of the year her senior year of high school and went on to play volleyball at Pfeiffer.
She married the "love of her life and soul mate" Peter Pope in 2015. Peter passed away in 2016 and Charlotte was so broken hearted and devastated she could hardly breathe.
Charlotte loved to make others laugh. She loved to jump out and scare people too. She loved her baby cat, Domino and her nephews Adin and Elim. She loved everyone. She was a special soul who does not come through this world very often. She loved her family and friends strongly and loved being a part of the Pope family.
She was preceded in death by her husband Peter W. Pope, her maternal grandparents, Marvin and Helen Rich and her paternal grandparents, Jack and Ruth McKenzie.
