As a native of Nashville, TN, she received her education and graduated from Hillsboro High School in 1941. She pursued her interest in theatre and drama at Vanderbilt University and Northwestern University. After World War II, she continued her studies in those fields at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, in London. Upon her return to Nashville, she met and married T.C. Summers. In 1999, they celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary, an event which, unknown to them at the time, was less than one year prior to his death. During those years, she was very involved in raising two boys and in participating in several civic organizations. Her more active involvement was as member of The Centennial Club, the English Speaking Union, the Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary and the West End Home Auxiliary. At the time of her death, she was a member of First Presbyterian Church, Nashville. Charlotte is survived by her sons, W.H. Summers and Thomas C. Summers, Jr (Sarah H.
