Charlotte Denise Ott was born May 7, 1959 to Marvin and Lottie Ott. As a small child, her mother noted an innate need to care for the sick. Her mother encouraged her to assist in the care of her ill father, grandparents, siblings, as well as injured animals.

During a stay at Clara Springs Encampment one summer, Charlotte felt she was led by God to know that He had created her to be a nurse. She never doubted that calling. With continual prayer and intervention from God, Charlotte lived to serve in that calling for over 30 years.
