Obituary of Charlotte Wall (nee Sloan)
With great sadness we announce the passing of our dear mother Charlotte Mary Etta on October 19, 2021 at the age of 92 in Edmonton, Alberta.
On September 8, 1929, Charlotte was born in the Village of Vinton in the County of Litchfield, Quebec, to parents Viola Archambault and Michael Sloan and sister to Mary and Patricia.
Charlotte’s memories and stories of growing up on the farm in Vinton were recalled her whole life; pranks, adventures, family, and the hard work that was part of her farm life.
Charlotte met and married Bernard Rushlow of Ottawa in June 1951, and they rented their first home in the Vanier area of the city. Their first child on the way, Bernard joined the Armed Forces, and they bought their home in Parkway Park district of Ottawa where they began family life raising five children.
There were two postings for the family and Charlotte bundled up the family and home for the move to Valcartier, Quebec, then to Winnipeg before they returned to Ottawa.
April 1991 Charlotte married Jacob Wall and they spent a wonderful life together living in Plantagenet, Ontario and Ericksdale, Manitoba. Those years were filled with fun times and memories for Charlotte. Charlotte and Jim had a community of friends with whom they shared many BBQ’s, birthdays, and holidays and often enjoying the simple pleasure of meeting friends for a cup of coffee.
In Plantagent and Ericksdale, Charlotte showed her green thumb growing lovely flower and productive vegetable gardens. It was common to see her out with her straw hat atop the lawn tractor cutting the acreage; she loved living on the land!
An avid and loyal hockey and football fan to the Winnipeg Jets and Winnipeg Blue Bombers, Charlotte loved to talk about the game and players, her favorite stars, and not so favorite stars, and could let you know who played well and who did not in no uncertain terms!
Charlotte was predeceased by her husband Jacob Wall, her late husband Bernard Rushlow, her parents; Viola and Michael Sloan, her sisters; Mary (Gosson) and Patricia (Cain), and an infant sister Mary Helena Teresia.
Charlotte was kind, generous, and a courageous woman with whom her children, her extended family and dear friends cherished having in their lives. She will be sorrowfully missed.
Somewhere the sun is shining, Somewhere the songbirds dwell;
Hush, then, thy sad repining, God lives, and all is well.
Chorus: Somewhere, somewhere,
Beautiful Isle of somewhere!
Land of the true, where we live anew,
Beautiful Isle of somewhere!
Somewhere the day is longer, Somewhere the task is done;
Somewhere the heart is stronger, Somewhere the guerdon won.
Somewhere the load is lifted, Close by an open gate;
Somewhere the clouds are rifted, Somewhere the angels wait.
Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Friday, June 3, 2022 in St. Elizabeth of Hungary Church, Vinton, Quebec at 1 p.m. followed by her burial in the parish cemetery.
