Charlotte Davis Farr
Charlotte Davis Farr, 88, of Capitola, passed away July 27, 2015 in San Jose, California with her loving family by her side.
Charlotte was born in Fresno, California and was the only child of John and Anna Willms Davis who emigrated from Dresden, Germany. Charlotte attended Fresno State where she met and married Richard Lyman Farr. Their life together brought them to San Jose, California to begin to raise their wonderful family together. Charlotte was known for her endless volunteering with the Junior League of San Jose and her career of modeling, which included walking the runway with live animals and even posing with a Lynx.
Charlotte moved to Aspen, Colorado in the early 1970’s with her four children by her side as she began her professional career as a property manager. Her position opened many opportunities at organizations including Protections Services Inc., Continental Inn, Glory Hole, and Aspen Alps before ending her career with Carol Ann Jacobson Reality.
Charlotte loved spending her time outdoors, camping, downhill and cross country skiing, attending Aspen Music Festival, Aspen Ballet, Aspen Theater Company or just cheering on her children and grandchildren from the sidelines. Her passion for travel extended to many exotic places including India, Costa Rica, Europe, Cuba and China to name a few. Her spirit for the outdoors gave Charlotte the opportunity to spend her later years wintering on the sunny beaches of Capitola, California and summering in the beautiful mountains of Aspen, Colorado.
Charlotte is preceded in death by her grandson Kyle Farr.
Charlotte is survived by her son Ryan Farr (Kay), grandsons Forest and Sidney; daughter Lisa Farr Lenzini, grandsons Matthew and Christian; daughter Carmen Farr Dowley, granddaughters Katherine, Elizabeth and Madeline; son Corey Farr (Heidi), grandson Aiden.
In lieu of a service, Charlotte’s wish was that everyone spend time outdoors and enjoy the beauty of nature for her.
The family will be honoring her wish by spreading Charlotte’s ashes over the two places she loved the most; the magnificent Rockies and a sunny warm beach.
