Charlotte V. Phillip (Erickson, Saenger), of Mounds View, formerly of Isle and Coon Lake Beach, went home to be reunited with her heavenly family after a long and courageous battle with COPD.
Char is survived by and will be terribly missed by her children, Charity (Jon) Michna, Louis Saenger (Elissa), Jimmy (Diana) Saenger; grandchildren, Heather (Travis) Walker, Amber, Jessica, Brooklyn Saenger, Kalahan Larson; great-grandchildren, Tayah, Brylee, Travis Jr., Tyler, Isabella; mother, Ethel Erickson; sisters, Bev Porter, Julie Beehler, Kerri Casper; many other family members and friends.
She is preceded in death by her dad, Clifford Erickson; brother, Gene Erickson; sister, Sharon Jensen; nephew, Kris Jensen.
Char’s greatest joy was spending time with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She enjoyed playing Scrabble, cribbage, scratch-offs and doing crossword puzzles. Her other passions were baking, reading and the love of plants.
Please join us to celebrate her life on Friday, July 19 at the Coon Lake Senior Community Center, 182 Forest Rd., Coon Lake Beach. A memorial service will be at 5:30 p.m. with visitation at 5.
