Susan Schobert Charlton, age 98, formerly of Madison County, Virginia, Arlington, Virginia, and Springfield, Nebraska, died peacefully at her home in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on March 6, 2019. She was born in Omaha, Nebraska on May 11, 1920 to William Bartell and Mable Elwell Schobert. She moved to Washington, D.C. where she met her now deceased husband, World War II veteran Brainard Stanton Charlton. Following her move to Washington, D.C., she went to Business College and worked at the F.B.I. and raised two children. She is survived by her daughter, Linda Charlton Drain, a granddaughter Gwen and her husband Todd Bartlett Graves, and two great-grandchildren: Sophia Evelyn Graves and Charlton Lancaster Graves. She was pre-deceased by her son Richard Stanton Charlton, grandson David Allen Drain, Jr., and son-in-law David Allen Drain. Susan lived life to the fullest, enjoying her home, family, and friends. She loved spending time with her grandchildren, sewing, and baking. She always had a twinkle in her eye and was happy whether at a basketball game, hosting a dinner party, or any time being with friends. Her faithful, loving caregiver and dear friend, Beverly Mougeot, was a gift to her whole family as well as Susan. Services will be held Sunday, March 17 at 1:00 PM at the Hebron Lutheran Church in Madison, Virginia. In lieu of flowers, gifts may be made in Mrs. Charlton's memory to the Hebron Lutheran Church Foundation – P.O.
