Charlotte Anna Molinari
arrived on 5/16/96 in Santa Rosa, CA; she was born to Colleen Fernald, now living in Sebastopol; born in Charleston, South Carolina.
Charlotte was the 1/2 sister to Jesse Fernald, AKA, Jesse Thomas Hay, of Santa Rosa, CA; and Nicholas Hodgetts, of Santa Barbara, originally from Berkeley, CA.
Charlotte was an amazing young woman; smart, funny, sharp wit, talented in the arts and sports; played flute, guitar, ukelele and recorder. She was famous for her clever short stories & love of British humor and gourmet vegetarian cooking.
Her early education was with Uta's Waldorf and College Oak Montessori. Next she attended Oak Grove Elementary; Sun Ridge Charter Waldorf is where she spent 5-8th grades. Charlotte went to Sonoma Academy until her death on 4/20/12.
