January 4, 1924 ~ January 18, 2018 (age 94)

St. Johnsbury, VT: Charlotte Irene (Russell) Piadade, age 94, of Mountain View Drive in St. Johnsbury, VT, passed away on Thursday, January 18, 2018, at St. Johnsbury Health and Rehabilitation Center.

Charlotte was born on January 4, 1924, in Bellows Falls, VT, daughter to Hiram Beacher and Margaret Lucy (Ponty) Russell. She was raised in Bellows Falls and lived there until her marriage to Arthur Piadade when they moved to St. Johnsbury. In her younger years, Charlotte volunteered at the Food Shelf and spent the majority of her time raising her children and keeping house.  After her own children were grown, she enjoyed visiting and watching her grandchildren.

She enjoyed traveling with her late husband, going out with the girls, shopping, and being with family. She was a loving and caring woman that would help out anyone with anything, even if it meant she went without. 

Charlotte is survived by 3 sons: Wayne and his wife, Marie, of Providence, RI, Joseph and his wife, Pamela, of South Boston, VA, and Dale, and his wife, Stephanie, of Lyndonville, VT; a daughter: Patricia Switzer of Lyndonville, VT; 20 grandchildren; 26 great-grandchildren; 18 great-great-grandchildren with one more great-great-grandchild on the way.

She will be rejoining her husband: Arthur Piadade; 3 sons: Arthur Jr., Robert, and Ronald Piadade; and a son-in-law: Dean Switzer.
