Life Tributes for the week of 1/28/20

Charlotte Scheiber Rigsby

Charlotte Scheiber Rigsby passed away in Sparks, Nevada on Dec. 20, 2019 after a short illness due to congestive heart failure.

She was born Charlotte Ann Salyer on Feb. 10, 1930 in Muskogee, Oklahoma. Her family moved to Bell Gardens, California when she was 6 years old. At about that time she met Roy Scheiber. They grew up together, married in 1950 and had three daughters. Roy died in 1992.

In 1994 she married Don Rigsby, and they lived in Janesville, California. Don died in 2015.

Charlotte always saw the good in people and was truly interested in others. Anyone who spent time with her could feel her warmth and charm. She changed many lives as a foster parent to troubled teens.

She always said, “Moderation is everything,” and showed that moderation in her daily glass of wine and piece of chocolate.

She leaves behind her broken hearted family: daughters, DiAnn Eskuri, Darlene Curry, of Boise, Idaho, and Dodie Boss, of Janesville, California; brothers, Chuck (Judy) Salyer, of Auburn, Washington; seven grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; and one great-great grandchild.
