Feb. 23, 1922 — April 23, 2014

Charlotte Mae Toon, 92, passed away Wednesday, April 23, 2014, in Fairfield, Calif.

She was born Feb. 23, 1922, to Edna and Elton Beeson in Talent, Ore. Her father passed away in her early childhood. Her mother was a schoolteacher. They lived with her grandmother, Irene Conger Wells, who was superintendent of the Jackson County poor farm in Oregon. She was a teenager when her mother remarried and Smith E. Trent came into her life.

Charlotte married Robert C. Toon in 1944 in Ventura, Calif. She raised three children. As her children grew, she began working for the Fairfield Unified School District, where she was a secretary into her 70s. She delighted in organizing activities, creating hundreds of standardized forms for school and organizational use, pursuing her family genealogy and collecting hippos.

She was involved with the Wednesday Club of Suisun City, Beta Sigma Phi, Delta Kappa Gamma, California Retired Teachers Association and the card group that does not play cards. She volunteered tirelessly for the Assist-A-Grad Scholarship Foundation.

She is survived by her eldest child, Pamela (Pat) Nourot; grandchildren, Brian (Beth) Maeyama, Arthur (Andrea) Nourot, Kim Maeyama and Tianna (Jim) Carter; 10 great-grandchildren, and the Lee ‘Ohana.

Charlotte was preceded in death by her husband; her daughter, Priscilla Lindgren; and her son, Bob Toon, Jr.

Per her wishes, she will be cremated by the Bryan-Braker Funeral Home in Fairfield. This summer, her family will lay her to rest at the Stearn Cemetery in Talent.

Her celebration of life will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, May 4, 2014, at the Wednesday Club of Suisun, 225 Sacramento Street, Suisun City.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made in her name to the Priscilla Toon Lindgren Memorial Scholarship, c/o Assist-A-Grad Scholarship Foundation, Inc., 1111 Webster Street, Fairfield, CA 94533.

    Charlotte was our secretary for Gomer School Historical Association for a number of years. Her tireless work helped keep us organized and in contact with members.

    Charlotte was a very loving, special person. She was so gracious not only to me but to my wife and children as well. We were so fortunate to have known her. She is very much missed.
