Charlotte Rae Twito

January 20, 1935 — December 30, 2022

CHARLOTTE RAE TWITO was born on January 20, 1935 to Milford and Ardath (Elsberry) Wickwire in Lehigh, Iowa. She spent her childhood in Lehigh, graduating from Lehigh High School in 1953. After graduation, she began her life with her husband Kenneth Twito. She followed Kenneth as he enlisted in the army and traveled to Fort Benning in Muscogee County Georgia where the couple was united in marriage on January 29, 1955. When Kenneth returned from service in 1956, the couple moved to Dayton, Iowa and then to Blooming Prairie, Minnesota in 1960. In 1964, they moved to Luverne, Minnesota, where Charlotte began selling Avon while Kenneth worked for the city. In 1982, the family moved to Breckenridge, Minnesota. After Kenneth’s death in 1989, Charlotte returned to Luverne. She continued selling Avon for a number of years and helped on and off with her daughter’s daycare. She continued living at home until her health complications brought her to the Sanford Hospice Cottage in Luverne, where on Friday, December 30, 2022 she joined her husband in the arms of her Savior at the age of 87 years, 11 months, and 10 days.

Charlotte loved time with her family. Whether playing games like pinochle or Uno, taking a trip to the casino, going out to eat for Dar’s Pizza, or just sitting and watching the geese, she loved sharing her life with her children, grandchildren, and friends. Christmas was her favorite time of year, especially when all of her family was able to be together. She was a member of the First Presbyterian Church in Luverne, where she served in The Circle and for the hospitality group. She traveled with the Prime Timers, her favorite trip being the Alaskan Cruise. She also enjoyed her morning breakfasts at McDonalds with her friends. Her family remembers her as a very caring, loving woman who was always willing to help anybody who needed it.

Charlotte is survived by her children, JoLeah Mann of Luverne, Rodney (Joni) Twito of Fosston, Minnesota, and Jeff (Brenda) Twito of Mesa, Arizona; grandchildren, Anthony (Candice), Sarah (Bryan), Reba, Emma, Bryan, Kelsey, and Alyssa; and great-grandchildren, Jocelynn, Addyson, Nicholas, Jack, and Hank. She was preceded in death by her husband, Kenneth Twito; grandson, Nick Mann; and brother, Robert Wickwire.
