Charlotte was born November 21, 1929, to John and Bethel (McKinney) Baker in Redfield, Iowa. She grew up in Redfield and graduated from Redfield High School with the class of 1947. She was united in marriage to James C. Jackson on June 20, 1948, in Redfield, Iowa and to this union two children were born, Melinda and John. They both worked for JM Cleminshaw Company until 1950, when they moved to a farm in Bagley and operated a dairy farm. In 1955, they both went back to work at JM Cleminshaw and they traveled extensively with the company until settling in Davenport in 1982 where they made their home until moving back to Redfield in 2002. Once settled back in Redfield, Charlotte worked as the hostess at the Redfield Diner for several years before retiring. Charlotte was also known for her pies she’d bake for the restaurant, family, and friends. Charlotte was an active member of the Redfield United Methodist Church where she belonged to the United Methodist Women’s Group.
