Our Deeply cherished Friend and Mentor Charlotte Ann Smith, age 84, died gracefully on July 17, 2020.

She is survived by her beloved spouse Kate Moga; her spouse’s large and extended family; sister-in-law, Karol; niece Lisa Bianchini; her nephews and spouses, Gregg and Jennifer, Mike and Suzanne; and eight great nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Ethel and Loyal, brothers David and Richard, and sister Carolyn.

Charlotte was born in Wilkes-Barre and grew up in Confluence, PA. 

She received her RN from West Penn School of Nursing and B.S. in nursing from University of Pittsburgh. She taught nursing for two years at West Penn for the Pittsburgh Board of Education. For the next three years she was a staff member for Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship and visited students in a five-state region in the Midwest.  She obtained her M.A. degree is in Pastoral Psychology from Trinity University Divinity School, IL and her PhD in Psychology and Religion from Northwestern University, IL. 

For thirty-five years, Charlotte maintained a full-time private practice as a clinical psychotherapist in Chicago, IL.  Charlotte created a powerful healing technique called Transformative Insight Imagery and from the 1970’s through 2001, she conducted numerous healing retreats in the Chicago area.  Hundreds of people experienced deep healing and personal growth from Charlotte’s imagery retreats.

During her retirement, Charlotte prayed daily for individuals and the Collective community. She read newspapers online and other sites such as BBC World. She then would have an inner sense where to focus her daily collective prayers.  Her memory lives on within each us as we journey towards Humanity’s awakening into Wholeness.
