Charlotte Hogge Walinski

Charlotte Hogge Walinski

Charlotte Hogge Walinski, 81, of Rockville, passed away Saturday, January 6, 2018, after courageously battling Alzheimer’s disease. She endured less than a year after the loss of her loving husband of 57 years, Albert. She also was preceded in death by her four brothers, William Mason Hogge Jr., Bertram Hogge, Charles Hogge, and James Hogge. She is survived by her daughter, Kristin, of Richmond; her sister, Dorothy Carts Spicer, of Richmond; and numerous nieces and nephews.

After graduating from Middlesex High School in 1954, Charlotte moved from Church View to Richmond, where she worked for the Department of Motor Vehicles. She dominated the agency’s bowling league for nine years before striking out on a new challenge. Charlotte loaned a year to the credit department of Sears Roebuck before signing on with the Richmond branch of Manulife (now John Hancock). She was hired to manage the office but was soon promoted to brokerage representative. For the next 30 years, she was perennially among the company’s highest producers nationally.

Charlotte was also a talented sportswoman whose greatest love, aside from her family, was golf. A fierce yet gracious competitor, both on and off the course, she served as president of the Montpelier Ladies Golf Association and hit a hole-in-one in 2001. In her later years, she grew to love bluegrass. Charlotte will be missed by the musicians and staff at Hickory Notch restaurant in Maidens, where she could be found clapping and singing along every Thursday night. Her family, including her cats, also miss her terribly.

The family will receive friends from 2 to 4 p.m. and from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, January 11, at Bliley’s Central, 3801 Augusta Ave., Richmond. A graveside service will be held on Friday, January 12, at 1 p.m. at Signal Hill Memorial Park, 12360 Hanover Courthouse Rd., in Hanover.

In lieu of flowers, Charlotte would be honored by donations to First Tee of Greater Richmond or the Alzheimer’s Association.
