Charlotte Kay Sturm passed away at Intermountain Medical Center, in Murray, UT on October 17, 2022, after suffering a major heart attack.
Charlotte was the 5th child born to Frederick Eugene Scholes and Carolyn Jean Anthony, on May 9, 1967. She and her family grew up in Murray, UT, where she graduated from Murray High School.
