Charlotte Mae Kritzman (Loeffler)

August 10, 1946 — June 28, 2020

CHARLOTTE MAE KRITZMAN,

73, of Cass City, died peacefully Sunday, June 28, 2020 in Vicinia Gardens Assisted Living of Fenton. She was born August 10, 1946 in Scheurer Hospital, Pigeon to Edward John and Alma Caroline (Hoppe) Loeffler. She was married to James R. Kritzman for twenty-four years.

Charlotte graduated from Sebewaing High School in 1964. Prior to marriage, Charlotte worked at Dow Chemical in Midland. She worked at the IGA store in Cass City for several years prior to Thumb National Bank. Charlotte earned a banking certificate from Delta Collage. She retired from Thumb National Bank, where she had many caring friends, with twenty plus years of service as a teller and later rejoined on a part time basis. Charlotte loved taking care of her beautiful home and spent countless hours working in her flower gardens. She was also known for many special dishes that she prepared for holidays, family and work events.

Caring for and raising her children in the Christian faith was her most treasured accomplishment. Charlotte had a strong Lutheran faith and served at New Salem Evangelical Lutheran Church for many years on the Ladies Aid and in the choir. She was always willing to help others. She was active and served on LWMS as Secretary and Treasurer in the recent past.

Charlotte was blessed with many great friends and cherished her sons and their families including five grandchildren. She adored spending time with all of her grandchildren babysitting, playing, singing, reading and praying together. Charlotte was always close to her brothers, their wives and she had many cousins, nieces and nephews that she adored as well as their families. Charlotte’s best friend was Larraine Ricker and she loved spending time with her and other classmates from 1964 in recent years every summer. She touched everyone’s life that she met, whether relative or friend, through her kind, gentle, faithful nature. She will be dearly missed by all who have had the pleasure of having her in their lives.

Charlotte is survived by her sons: James (Shelli) Kritzman of Whitmore Lake, John (Kim) Kritzman of Fenton; grandchildren: Mark, Luke, Joey, Zach, Ashley; brothers: Leroy (Sharon) Loeffler of Sebewaing, twin Erwin (Cynthia) Loeffler of Sebewaing; sisters-in-law: Joan Loeffler of Sebewaing, Joyce Loeffler of Gagetown; many nieces and nephews.
