Charlotte Patricia Wade, known to her friends and family as Charly, age 51, passed away in the comfort of her own home in Oak Harbor, Washington, surrounded by her loved ones, on January 27, 2020. She is survived by her husband and soulmate, Tom (Wade), her two beloved daughters, Ashley (Brooks) and Emma (Elm), her grandchildren John-Corban and Brantley (Brooks), and her two fur babies Jack and Sophie.

Charly was born on February 16, 1968 in Chula Vista, California to her parents, Alley and Frank Pike. Her father was in the Navy and she spent her childhood living in many different states. In 1999, she achieved an associate degree in graphic design from Skagit Valley College. She married her husband Tom on July 17th of 2010.

Charly was far from ordinary and wore many hats in her short, but full life. She loved anything purple, dragonflies, and always dreamed of sitting on a beach. She was the life of any party, had an affinity for gardening, and possessed an unwavering love for sunshine. Her sense of humor was lively, with enough of her own idioms to fill an entire novel. She was anything but graceful, but that is why the whole community fell in love with her.

Charly Wade will be missed by many, from family, to friends, to the random folks who only briefly met her. A celebration of her life will be held at 12:00 p.m. on February 16, 2020 at 225 W Frostad Rd. Oak Harbor, WA 98277.
Arrangements have been made with the assistance of Whidbey Memorial Funeral Home.

In lieu of flowers please make donations to the Lung Cancer Research Foundation.

From the beginning, she let me know, that her name was Charly and not Charlotte! This was an insight as too who she truly was...a special, unique individual, not to be pigeon holed into manner or type, running the direction she chose! Quick with a hello and smile, caring beyond measure, giving generously, telling it "like it is" and laughing without reserve. This is how I remember one of the finest persons I have had the honor of knowing, wishing there had been more opportunity to know Charly further... the gift of God to us all!

She always spoke very highly of you and loved working for you, Nate. This is the perfect description of the incredible woman we all knew her to be. Thank you for sharing your memories of her!
