Obituaries: Lisa Charlotte Marie Karlson

July 22, 2020

July 27, 1929 – July 17, 2020
Cornwall, NY

Lisa Charlotte Marie Karlson, of Cornwall, NY was called to her heavenly home on July 17, 2020 at her home surrounded by her loving family. She was 90 years old.

The daughter of the late Axel Erikson and Esther (Dahlgren) Erikson, Lisa, more commonly known as Charlotte, was born on July 27, 1929 in Stamford, CT. Most of her youth was spent in Stamford, but she also lived in Sweden.

She graduated from Stamford High School in Stamford, CT and attended Zion Bible Institute in Rhode Island. Employment included time spent with Electrolux, before getting married and raising a family, but had various jobs outside the home as well. Charlotte became a School Bus Driver in Friendship, NY and retired from the East Ramapo Central School District, Spring Valley, NY.

She was very involved in her local church, and served in a number of ways. A very musically talented pianist, she used her piano and vocal skills for nearly seven decades, serving in every church in which she attended.

Charlotte’s children were her main focus throughout her life. A very devoted mother, she worked to make a warm and loving environment for her children. All who knew her, enjoyed her excellent cooking and baking skills, especially her Swedish baked goods. Charlotte’s grandchildren knew her either as Mormor (mother’s mother) or Farmor (father’s mother). There was nothing she enjoyed more than the time she spent with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She will be greatly missed by both family and friends.

Charlotte is survived by her daughters: Dawn Larsen of Stanfordville, NY, Yvonne Karlson of New Windsor, NY, Lisa Karlson-Priore (Robert) of Cornwall, NY and Sonja Briggs (Don) of New Windsor, NY; her son: Glen Karlson (Kristine) of Cornwall, NY; 13 grandchildren; and 3 great-grandchildren. In addition to her parents, Charlotte was predeceased by her brother: George Axel Erikson.

Visitation will be held from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, July 26th at Quigley-Sullivan Funeral Home, Inc., 337 Hudson Street, Cornwall-On-Hudson, NY. Due to the continued public health concerns of covid-19, please know that there is an occupancy limitation which may cause a wait time. Facial coverings must be worn in the funeral home at all times.
