Charlotte Fountain passed away at her home in Lafayette, Colorado Sunday, May 1, surrounded by her loving family.  Born in Glendale, California in 1947, the daughter of the late William and Judith Anderson, Ms. Fountain became a nun in the Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary for a decade and started her career as a teacher with a bachelor’s degree from Immaculate Heart College in Los Angeles and a California Teaching Credential. After leaving the sisterhood she married, became a mother, and continued as an educator becoming certified as a Montessori teacher. Teaching reading was her passion and she touched the lives of many students. Ms. Fountain’s commitment to integrity, kindness and open heartedness made her a remarkable teacher, a friend to many, and a devoted mother to her daughters, Jill and Claire Fountain. She will be missed by them, her brother and sister, nephews and friends. A memorial service celebrating her life will be announced at a later date.

  1. May Charlotte be in peace and love. Her care and kindness live on in all who knew and loved her. When my family was struggling through crisis on a few occasions, she was there to offer support, and her concern and nurturing, just knowing that she was there, helped ease the mental and emotional burden.

    My favorite picture of her was taken at my second birthday party. She’s wearing a long dress and kneels next to her daughter, Claire, just a year old at the time, to help her eat birthday cake. She was a wonderful mother and I am thankful to have had her in my life as a “second mother.” ❤️

  2. Charlotte listened to me talk endlessly about children as we laughed and shared stories. We took walks at Chautauqua and she just glowed in nature. I’ll miss you Charlotte. See you again one day…..?
