WHITE STONE—Charlotte Elisabeth Estelle Horine Boyle Schmidt passed July 11, 2023, peacefully, at home, with her family.

She was born June 9, 1936, in Westminster, Maryland, to the late Randolph A. Horine and Inez Cullison Horine.

Charlotte was predeceased by late husband, Glenn Boyle; sister, Linda H. Hendrix; and brother, Randolph M. Horine.

She is survived by husband, James C. Schmidt, a second marriage of 47 years; children, Neal X. Boyle, York, Pa., Renee B. Brewer, (Eugene) of Westminster, Gina B. Clune (Shawn) of Annandale; four grandchildren, Jill B. Larimer, (Robbie) of Cambridge, Daniel T. Brewer, (Kristin) of Warrenton, Henry J. Clune and Madeleine M. Clune of Annandale; 6 great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.

Charlotte graduated from Westminster High School, class of 1954, and Baltimore Business College. Employed by Union National Bank, retiring after 32 years of service as assistant vice president and branch manager.

Before retirement, and moving to White Stone, she was a member of Ascension Episcopal Church in Westminster. Most recently, she was a member of Wicomico Parish Church in Wicomico Church, and the Rappahannock River Yacht Club. She loved her family, spending valuable time with them.

After retirement in 1996, she and Jim sailed aboard their Pearson 35, “Starlight Express”, traveling down the ICW to Florida, the Keys and the Bahamas, often being joined by family and friends aboard the boat.

In 2000, they sailed north from Florida and found Kilmarnock and their home on Beach Road in White Stone. They continued to sail for a few years, but then decided camping was easier, sold “Starlight Express” and bought a 17-foot Casita travel trailer, camping in 49 states and Canada. Foreign travel has also been an enjoyment of them as well.

She enjoyed exercising at the YMCA and playing mahjongg. Her dogs were an important part of her life, on the boat and camping, most recently, Lucy dog. She will always be remembered for her smile, her beautiful blue eyes and her laugh.

A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. September 9 at Wicomico Parish Church in Wicomico Church. A reception will follow at the church.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Rappahannock General Hospital Cancer Care Center or Riverside Hospice.

Currie Funeral Home LLC of Kilmarnock handled the arrangements.
