Oregon – Charlotte J. Gullick, age 91, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on Thursday, July 13, 2017 at UW Hospital. She was born on July 28, 1925 to Oscar and Ida (Hanold) Heine in Grunberg, Germany. After coming through Ellis Island, Charlotte attended Custer High School in Milwaukee. After graduating, her family relocated to Sauk City where Charlotte worked at Badger Ordinance. Charlotte was united in marriage to Stansmore Gullick, the love of her life, on September 9, 1950 at Bethel Lutheran Church in Madison. She was proud of how she and Stan worked together to build a life for their family. Charlotte loved gardening, baking banana bread, driving the kids around and being at every activity and sporting event. She loved to spend time with Stan at their cabin and land in Clyde, Wisconsin. Charlotte was proudest of her children and being “Grams” to her grandchildren. After Stan passed away, she appreciated the friendship of friends, Gretchen and John.

Schlaf Gesund!

To Those I Love and Those Who Love Me,
My beloved children: Rick, Steve and Stacy; and Grandchildren.

When I am gone, release me, let me go
I have so many things to see and do
You mustn’t tie yourself to me with tears,
Be happy that we had so many years.

I gave you my love. You can only guess
How much you gave to me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you each have shown,
But now it’s time I traveled on alone.

So grieve a while for me if grieve you must
Then let your grief be comforted by trust.
Fore it’s only for a while that we must part
So bless the memories within your heart.

I won’t be far away, for life goes on
So if you need me, call and I will come,
Though you can’t see or touch me, I’ll be near.
And if you listen with your heart, you’ll hear,
All of my love around you soft and clear.

And then when you must come this way alone,
I’ll greet your with a smile and “Welcome Home.”
