LOGANVILLE, Ga. -- Charlotte Louise Hoover Seese Gladulich passed away peacefully early Jan. 27, 2017, at her daughter's home in Loganville, Ga., after an extended illness.
She was born Jan. 11, 1943, in Wooster, the daughter of the late Dorothy Tilton Hoover and Vernon Hoover. She was a graduate of Wooster High School, and after graduation used her secretarial skills working in the office of The Wooster Brush Co.
Charlotte was a recognized talented musician with a beautiful baritone voice and was invited to direct the Millersburg ladies chapter of the Sweet Adeline's Barbershop Harmony chorus.
Moving to Atlanta, Ga., with her husband and family, she was a charter member of Pilgrimage Presbyterian Church in Lilburn, Ga., and served them as choir director and soloist.
Her talent was again soon recognized and she was asked to direct the Atlanta chapter of the Sweet Adeline's "Song of Atlanta" chorus which she led to their first-ever placement in competition in Orlando, Fla. As lead vocalist of her barbershop quartet, "The Shortcakes," she led them to a first-place finish in the southeast region and earned an invitation to the national competition in Scottsdale, Ariz.
Surviving are sons, Terryl Scott (Deborah) Seese, Dewaine (Judy) Seese III and a daughter, Jamie Lynn (John) Jones; four grandchildren, three great-grandchildren; a sister, Zetta Mae Stewart; and two nieces and a nephew.
She was preceded in death by her husband, James Gladulich; her parents; and a sister, Phyllis Ann Hoover.
Private family memorial services will be held at her daughter's home in the future.
