Spread the love



Charlotte Ann Conrad of Patterson, New York, entered into heavenly rest on Monday, April 19, 2021. She was 80 years old. Charlotte was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin, and friend to all who knew her.
Charlotte was born on May 10, 1940 in Chattanooga, Tennessee to the late Arvezine (Jackie) Morgan and Ralph Clayton of Soddy Daisy, TN. Charlotte’s life was deeply touched by her devoted grandparents, Aaron and Laura Morgan, who helped to raise both Charlotte and her beloved brother, Paul (Clayton). After graduating from secretarial school in Chattanooga, Charlotte became a proud, active member of the U.S. Navy in 1957, spending the majority of her service in Great Lakes, IL. She was honorably discharged in 1961. A proud veteran, Charlotte never let an opportunity pass to honor the military service of others.
On December 3, 1966 Charlotte married the love of her life, Thomas J. Conrad at St. Joseph’s Church in Croton Falls, NY. Married for fifty-four years, Charlotte and Tom made their life in Patterson, NY, becoming active members of the Putnam Lake Fire Department and Ladies Auxiliary. Charlotte would often speak of how her involvement with the PLFD led to the blessing of lifelong family friendships.
Charlotte was employed as a Medical Secretary at Green Chimneys in Brewster, NY for many years before her retirement in 2000. A devout Catholic, Charlotte was also a devoted and active member of Sacred Heart Parish in Putnam Lake for more than five decades.
Charlotte is survived by her beloved and devoted family including her son Peter Conrad and his wife, Karen (Kasinger) of Conway, AR; her son Paul Conrad and his wife, Alison (Abel) of Walden, NY; five cherished grandchildren: Cameron, Matthew, Katelyn, Kyle, and Jack; numerous adored family members and lifelong friends who are loved as family.
She was predeceased by her husband, Thomas, brother, Paul Clayton, sister-in-law, Lisette Clayton, and brothers-in-law, John “Jack” Conrad and John Farese.
There will be a Memorial Mass at Sacred Heart Church in Putnam Lake, NY at a future date.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made in Charlotte’s name to the Alzheimer’s Association (alz.org).
