Starratt (Harvie), Charlotte Lovell Edith – 87 of Lower Sackville, it is with sad hearts we announce Charlotte’s peaceful passing on May 24, 2022, after suffering a massive stroke. Joyful for her gain but saddened by her passing, Charlotte will be truly missed by the family and friends she has left behind. Born in Digby NS on September 6, 1934, she was the daughter of the late Fred and Edith (Winchester) Harvie.
Charlotte had a long and satisfying career in the Halifax Pathology Laboratory, during which time she also studied and completed her degree at Dalhousie University. She was a long-time member of Bedford Baptist Church and had the privilege of being baptized in the Bedford Basin along with her dad in 1967. Charlotte had a heart to serve others; she gave generously, offered warm hospitality, was always ready with advice, and brightened the room with her presence. Charlotte also had a deep love for cats (Casper was known to many) and dogs, as evidenced by several rescues over the years.
She was a younger sister to Beth (now deceased), Burton (Sonny) and Donna. Later in life Charlotte married Wilbur Starratt (recently deceased) and came to know and appreciate his grown children Cheryl Levy (BC), Pamela Marks (AB), Ruth Ann Bernard (deceased) (NS), and sons Raymond (NS) and Bernard (AB).
There will be no public service or visitation upon family request, and a private family internment will be held at Pleasant Hill Cemetery, Lower Sackville at a later date.
Donations in memory of Charlotte may be made to the Bedford Baptist Church, the Nova Scotia SPCA or a charity of choice.
