My journey of life began on July 4, 1941, born to the late Alvin and Jennie (Weytens)Roulette in Green Bay. I was the only daughter and the youngest of three children; my brother’s, Jim 12 years older and Floyd “Bubby” 6 years older. At age six years old, I lost my Father. The years to follow were very hard and lean. Our Mother taught us to be thankful for what we had and not to think about what we didn’t have. This only made us stronger as a family. I never forgot where I came from during these hard times of being poor and never will be ashamed if it. I feel it made me a stronger and better person to get along in this world. I enjoyed 70’s, Solid Gold Oldies and Country Classic music; old movies and researching history.
I attended St. Willebrord’s Grade School; Washing Jr. High and graduated from East high in 1961. After high school, I worked for a Bridal Shop; H.C. Prange’s and other jobs. I was then employed by the Green Bay Public School District for 29 years as a secretary. I was a member of the Altar Society at St. Mary of the Angels parish.
Charlotte is survived by her parish family from St. Mary of the Angels; Fr. Ponce Macabalo, O.F.M., Deacon Paul P. Umentum, O.F.S., and other parishioners. She is further survived by the retired, unique, Fr. Ken DeGroot, and the outstanding Sr. Melanie Maczka. They both “always” took the time to care and share “compassion for all”. Other survivors included good friends Joyce Janus, Joyce Plansky and Paula Rieder. There are no other survivors.
Charlotte was preceded in death by her parents, step-father, Wally Johnson and brothers, Jim and Floyd.
A private funeral service was held at St. Mary of the Angels Catholic Church. Burial in the Allouez Catholic Cemetery.
In lieu of other expressions of sympathy a memorial fund has been established.

Special Thank You to Deacon Paul Umentum for handling my personal business and for circumstances to come. Also, to Paula R. for everything that you have done for me. Indeed, you make the world “special” just by being in it. You are honest and sweet and not a phony. Until we all meet again a better place.
