Born June 29, 1926, daughter of Margaret (Biddle) and Richard L. Reeves and sister of Richard L. Reeves. Charlotte passed away on May 15 in Harwich, MA, after a lengthy convalescence. She grew up in Islington, graduated from Dedham High School and married John D. Woodfin, Jr. After raising their three children in Lexington, MA, Charlotte went to work for the Federal Archives Center in Waltham and assisted in the 1979 opening of the John F. Kennedy Library and Museum in Boston, where she was the long-time assistant to Museum Curator Dave Powers. Her position at the Kennedy Library regularly brought her in contact with world leaders, politicians and celebrities until her retirement in 1994. She then resided in the Chicago area for several years before returning to Massachusetts. She always enjoyed time with her grandchildren, reading biographies, oil painting, and dining with friends and family. She is survived by her children Stephen (Laurie) of Chatham, MA, Jane (Gary Bachula) of McLean, VA, and Ellen of Aiken, SC, grandchildren Tom Woodfin (Jennifer) of Cambridge, MA, Barbara Waxman (Zac) of Tulsa, OK, Stephanie Bachula Warren (Michael Sloan Warren) of New York, and two great-grandchildren Reuben Waxman and Charlotte Woodfin.
