Charlotte spent her school years in and around the northern Minnesota towns of Kennedy, Erskine, Rosevelt and McIntosh. She was baptized in St. Thomas, N.D., confirmed in Salem Lutheran Church, of McIntosh, and graduated from McIntosh High School and Normal Teachers Training in 1927. After teaching at a couple of country schools in northern Minnesota, she came to teach at the Lindbloom Country School in rural Chisago City. While teaching she lived with the Herbert Dahlquist family and through them met her husband, Parker Dahlquist.
Charlotte and Parker were married April 30, 1932, by Pastor Slatt, of Zion Lutheran Church. They lived on a farm in rural Chisago City not far from the school where she had taught. One daughter, Shirley Ann, was born to this marriage. They continued to live on this farm until retiring in 1972. They spent a couple of years in Sunrise and then returned to live in Lindstrom until Parker’s death in 1989. Shortly after his death, Charlotte moved to the Margaret Parmly Residence.
Charlotte was very active in her church teaching Sunday School and with her Circle and LCW. She helped with every building and remodeling project initiated at Zion. Charlotte’s most important concern was that she and her family would again meet some day in heaven.
Charlotte worked at Bethesda Old Peoples’ Home (later to be renamed Margaret Parmly Residence) for many years doing a variety of jobs including laundry lady, housekeeping, cooking and nursing assistant.
After moving to Margaret Parmly Residence she received the Isabel Lindgren Award for her many years of dedicated service.
