We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Luddy & Peterson's Funeral Home & Crematory
Charlotte Melim (Aguiar) Seyer passed away peacefully of natural causes on Monday, May 16, 2022, at her home at Arden Courts of Avon, Connecticut. She was 93 years of age.
Charlotte was born December 17, 1928, in Kapa’a, Kauai, Hawaii, the daughter of Senator Manuel R. Aguiar and Mrs. Beatrice Ignacio Aguiar. Charlotte was employed as assistant to her father, Senator Aguiar, when he served as Hawaii State Senate President and Mayor of Kauai. Charlotte worked beside her father as he led the campaign to secure Hawaii’s statehood.
Furthermore, Charlotte shared vivid memories when, at the age of 13 in 1941, the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, at which time her father was serving as Kauai’s mayor. Charlotte is predeceased by her parents, her sisters, Beatrice and Marie Carol, and her husband, Francis Henry “Frank” Seyer.
On June 16, 1951 Charlotte married Frank, her husband of 61 years, in Kapa’a, Kauai. They created their home in Los Angles and later in Weston, Connecticut, where she dedicated her life to her children and family. Charlotte was a caring wife, mother, grandmother, and friend to many. She will be remembered most for her nurturing ways and spending time with loved ones. Second to Frank, music was Charlotte’s greatest love. She attended Mount Saint Mary’s University in Los Angeles, where she studied music and business. She was a devout congregant of Saint Francis of Assisi Parish, Weston, CT, and an active member of the parish's music ministry. She was a passionate vocalist, gardener, tennis player, cook, and hostess.
Charlotte is survived by her children, Frank Seyer, Jr., Mark Seyer, Lisa Seyer, and Matthew Seyer. Matthew and Frank, Jr. provided loving care and companionship to Charlotte for the past
ten years. She is also survived by her two granddaughters, Elizabeth and Emma, and a host of extended family and friends who will cherish her memory. Her family would like to thank the staff of Arden Courts of Avon and her caregiver, Mary, for their professional care and unwavering support during the latter years of her life.
