After proudly passing along the business to their sons who continue to operate it today, Charlotte and husband Robert enjoyed retirement RV-ing around the United States and Canada. They also spent considerable time at the Abbott Family Homestead in Arroyo Seco. Charlotte enjoyed spoiling her grand-children and great-grand-children and was an avid fan of the San Francisco Giants as well as the 49ers. She loved attending sporting events featuring her grandchildren, including Monica Abbott, USA Olympic softball Pitcher. Charlotte was especially proud, excited & looking forward to the opening of the family’s newest Fosters Freeze facility in North Salinas, under the Leadership of Grandson Jared Abbott
Charlotte was preceded in death by her son, David and his wife Bina in 1969 and her Husband of 67 years, Robert in 2013.
