In Memory of Charlotte Kanouse

We mourn the death of Charlotte J. Kanouse, a longtime member of the UniLu community, on Tuesday, April 4, 2017. She was 93 years old.

Charlotte was the beloved wife of the late Curwood Kanouse and the loving mother of the late Judy and Linda Kanouse. Charlotte attended University Lutheran with Judy in the 1990s. When health concerns limited their ability to come to worship, Charlotte welcomed members into her home for regular visits and the sharing of communion. Members who visited her recall her gracious hospitality, stories about growing up in Tip O’Neill’s old neighborhood, love of chocolate and peanut butter, and optimistic outlook even in difficult times.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all who mourn, including Charlotte’s granddaughter Kimberly Boudreau and her husband Darrell of Lexington; grandson Jeremy Kanouse of Somerville; great-granddaughter Alexis Boudreau; and brother William Robinholt and his wife Margaret of Pennsylvania.

The funeral took place at the Keefe Funeral Home, 2175 Mass Ave., North Cambridge on Tuesday, April 11, 2017 at 10 am.
