Charlotte Elizabeth (Tolman) Wetherbee, in her 100th year, passed away peacefully on March 1, 2021 with family at her side. She was born June 23, 1921 at Emerson Hospital, Concord, MA to Nellie Edith (Jones) and Henry Everett Tolman. She was predeceased by her husband Thomas E. Wetherbee as well as her brothers Lucius Tolman and Wilbur Tolman. Charlotte was a lifelong resident of Acton, MA living on the same street for 92 years. A graduate of Miss Farmer's School of Cookery, Boston, MA, she worked as a pastry cook at Howard Johnson's in Concord, MA. There she met and married the love of her life, Thomas E.

Twelve of those years were dedicated to helping families using Emerson's Hospice care. In 1987 she began working at the West Concord 5&10 and continued for many enjoyable years. She was always available to family, friends and acquaintances to offer help and support. Until recent years, she was active in her church and community. She volunteered at church, worked as a poll worker for many elections and belonged to the Friends of Acton Nursing Service and Emerson Hospital Auxiliary.

She is survived by her daughters Diane Bilodeau of Greenacres, FL and Lois Flint and her husband David of Merrimack, NH and her son Robert Wetherbee and his wife Roberta of Littleton, MA. She also has five loving grandchildren, Aaron Flint and wife Kim (Vigneault) of Goffstown, NH, David Flint and his wife Alison (Grote) of Merrimack, NH, Kirsten (Bilodeau) Cook and her husband Bryan of Okanogan, WA, Bradford Wetherbee and his wife Sara (Harris) of Ashburnham, MA and Jillian (Wetherbee) Marshall and husband Michael of Lunenburg, MA.

In addition, she is survived by six Great-Grandchildren, Paige and Tate Flint, Katherine and Thomas Wetherbee and Delilah and Bevin Marshall. She leaves behind many beloved nieces and nephews and many devoted friends.

I have so many memories of your mom and wish I could share them in person. Your mom was a friend,
Neighbor, good friend of Zita and Howard and overall a truly fine neighbor. I remember back when my
Mom didn’t drive Charlotte would pick up her pies for the Auxiliary and deliver to the hospital coffee
Shop. Many years later and I became a member of the Auxiliary and Charlotte was still active and always
Encouraged me. I remember how Aunt’s Eleanor and Midge (Jones) would look forward to seeing your
Mom whenever they were visiting Gramma in Acton. Their friendship picked up right where they left off.
I remember visiting Diane, Lois and baby Bobby on Prospect St. I was very taken seeing Baby Bobby. Later
Visiting upper Prospect St. where she’d always have a sweet to offer, probably one of her famous pies.
My most recent memory was her calls to see how my David was doing. And, more recently her kindness
When David and Susan passed.....always sincere and kind.
Charlotte was the last of her generation. They’re all quite the ladies who I remember with fondness memories.
She will be missed by all of us older Actonians.
Peace and love, Grace McWalter

Sending my heartfelt sympathy on the death of Charlotte. She was a very caring woman and shared much of her time helping others and involved in her family, church and community. She made the best cookies and bars and any time you visited her home, she would have something sweet to give you.
Sincerely, Joan Hansen Richards
