Obituary of Charlotte C. Anderson
Charlotte Catherine Anderson was the fourth child and only daughter born to Oliver and Adelaide Palmer on November 8, 1919, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Charlotte passed from this earth into eternal rest with our Heavenly Father on Saturday, February 6, 2010, surrounded by her loving family at the AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center in Pomona, New Jersey. Affectionately known as "Sissie" to family and friends, Charlotte and her family moved to Atlantic City when she was very young. She attended the Atlantic City public school system and graduated from Atlantic City High School in 1937. Throughout her lifetime, she was employed in various capacities. In the early 1960's, she took special pride in being hired as the first African-American bank teller in the city of Atlantic City at the Boardwalk National Bank. From an early age, Charlotte would often visit her neighborhood churches where she enjoyed the singing and spirit of Christian Fellowship. For the past forty years, she was a member of Union Baptist Temple. Throughout her lifetime her faith remained steadfast and her love for God unyielding. As a dedicated homemaker, Charlotte enjoyed bike riding, walking on the boardwalk, and until the time of her passing, watching her "game shows." Anyone who knew Nana was familiar with the theme song for "The Price Is Right" and those enthusiastic words, "Come on Down!" She will be deeply missed and always remembered for her caring personality and wonderful sense of humor. Charlotte was predeceased by her parents, Oliver and Adelaide Palmer; brothers, Milton, Charles, and Oliver Palmer; husband, Benjamin; and son, Michael. She is survived by: daughters, Linda of Atlantic City and Jodi Bair (Joseph) of East Windsor; son, Gregory (Diana) of Somers Point; "special daughter", Rita B. Krall of Galloway; daughter-in-law, Deborah of Galloway; grandchildren, Kemba, Brian, Jodi, Jason, Soweto, Aisha, Christina, Monica, and Michael; great-grandchildren, Omar, Elijah, and Siani; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and very dear friends.
