St. Joseph News Press
Sister Charlotte Marie White, who grew up in Plattsburg and then Gower, Mo., is marking her 50th anniversary this year as a Sister of Charity of Leavenworth (SCL). Sister Charlotte celebrated with 12 other SCL golden jubilarians at the Mother House, Leavenworth, Kan., during a Mass and reception June 27.
Sister Charlotte began her childhood in California until her family settled in the Midwest. Her early missions as a sister included teaching grade school in Helena, Mont., and high school in Kansas City, Mo. After 20 years in the classroom, she worked in mission integration for the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth Health System (SCLHS), a role she subsequently held with Exempla Healthcare in Denver, Colo.
