Obituary of Charlotte Otero

Charlotte M. Otero, 51, of Carmel, lost her battle with anxiety and depression on Friday, June 8, 2018. She was born on December 30, 1966 to Con and Mary (Kerns) Olson in Indianapolis, IN.

Charlotte and David Otero were married in her parent’s backyard in Indianapolis on June 1, 1985, a few days after Charlotte graduated from Southport High School. She went on to earn a diploma in Dental Assisting at the Southern California College of Medical and Dental Careers. She worked as a dental assistant for 13 years before having her two children, Ashley and Emily Otero. After the birth of her daughters she became a loving homemaker, a career she cherished for the rest of her life. Charlotte was a devout Christian who served Jesus in every aspect of her life. She was an involved member of a women’s bible study at Hope Church in Carmel and an avid attendee of Grace Church in Noblesville. She was also heavily involved in her daughters’ schools and activities. Her life mission was to help people in any capacity possible, and no one was a stranger to her. She was the most selfless, genuine, compassionate and beautiful wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend, and human anyone could ever meet.

She is survived by her husband, David Otero; her daughters, Ashley and Emily Otero; her father, Con Olson; her brother and sister-in-law, Dwayne and Bobbie Olson; her niece, Tricia Ballenger; her mother-in-law, Dolores Otero; and her sisters-in-law and their families, Becky Sandoval, Stella Salcido and Michelle Montoya.

Charlotte is preceded in death by her mother, Mary Olson; and nephew, Rick Olson.
