Charlotte Ruth (Ragan) Pigg was born Jan. 15, 1921, in Christopher, to parents, Charlie and Ruth (Laney) Ragan. Charlotte, the youngest of four siblings, grew up in Woodlawn, graduating from Ashley High School in Ashley.

As a young teen, Charlotte accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as her personal savior and was baptized at Woodlawn Baptist Church, Woodlawn. She enjoyed singing in trios at church and for the church radio broadcast. She also enjoyed playing the piano and organ for personal enjoyment.

Charlotte was united in marriage to Harmon Russell Pigg on Aug. 3, 1940, at Logan Street Baptist Church in Mt. Vernon. They spent the first years of married life in Woodlawn. To this union two children were born: John Verner in Woodlawn, and Judith Kaye in Centralia.

In 1951, the family moved to Sidney, Mont., where Harmon worked as an Independent Petroleum Landman. Charlotte was a very kind, gentle lady who loved her family very much and filled our home with love and joy. Her house was the place everyone gathered for Easter, Thanksgiving or Christmas. She was a great cook and passed on many recipes to us. Many times Harmon would bring an unannounced guest home for supper and mom was able to put a great meal on the table even after just getting home from work herself. She will be greatly missed by all of us!
