Charlotte was born July 4, 1926 at Macoum, Saskatchewan. She moved to The Pas, Manitoba then to Winnipeg where she met and married Cameron Hugh McInnis in 1948. They lived in Winnipeg for 45 years, raising their 2 children, Sandra Lynn and Randall Russel. She spent her final 30 years in Coaldale, Alberta.
Charlotte was a tireless volunteer for the Canadian Western Horse Association in Winnipeg for many years. She took great pride in seeing her horse “Dondi Pride” win many CWHA and AQHA awards. Jaclyn Evaschesen took over the reins and showed him when she was 7 years old, continuing to win many awards. Dondi and Jaclyn won AQHA All Round Youth 18 and Under. She was nine years old at the time and couldn’t have been more proud.
Charlotte loved to sew; she made many costumes and show clothes. She also loved to cook and bake and was known for her Oreo cookies. When she moved to Coaldale she volunteered with the Lethbridge Therapeutic Riding Association and worked many years with the Lethbridge Food Bank. She belonged to “Tops” where at the age of 85 she met her goal weight.
The family wishes to acknowledge her nephew, Lloyd (Noreen) McDougall-Price, for their incredible support and many kindnesses to Charlotte and our family over the last several years of her life.
