CHARLOTTE TAMBLYN 1916 - 2007 Charlotte Marr Tamblyn, nee Murphy, passed away peacefully at Stratford General Hospital on Friday March 23. Beloved wife of the late Walter Tamblyn. Dearly beloved mother of Dr. David Tamblyn and wife Dr. Susan Tamblyn of Stratford; Louise Tamblyn; John Tamblyn and wife Mary Susan Brennan all of London; James Tamblyn and wife Kiri Stenberg of Toronto.

Charlotte was born November 5, 1916 in Quebec City. A chance meeting with an RCAF Flying Officer at the Chateau Frontenac turned into a whirlwind war-time romance, a spring wedding in 1941 and a loving sixty year partnership. Charlotte followed her new husband from Quebec City to Montreal to Nassau to Toronto, eventually settling in London. Here she raised her family of four while serving her community through various organizations including the Ryerson Home and School Association; Anglican Church Women; Meals on Wheels; and as a volunteer instructor for the English as a Second Language program. Friends may call on Tuesday March 27 from 2-4 and 7-9 PM at the James A.
