Charlotte Eileen “Cricket” Oettel, age 81, a resident of Palm Coast, passed away peacefully on Friday, May 3rd, following bouts with a longtime illness.

Charlotte had a vibrant life in Philadelphia, before moving from Ridley to Palm Coast, with her husband, Robert in 1989.  She worked for Flagler County Schools for 27 years as a school bus driver and often commented that she loved the children that rode on her bus.  After retiring in 2015, she worked for Flagler County Transportation as a senior transport driver for 2-3 years.

She is predeceased by her husband, Robert and her sons, Stephen and David. She is survived by her son Charles “Ching” Oettel and her step-daughters Gail Baham and Sharon Oettel.  She is lovingly remembered by her grandchildren: Renee, Orion and Alex, and by her many friends. A celebration of life will be announced at a later date.
