Charlotte Dunham McCall, age 90, died Saturday, October 23, in her sleep. She worked at Bell Laboratories in the 1950s where she met the love of her life, David McCall, to whom she was married for 47 years. An active member of St Mark’s Church in Basking Ridge for many years; she even wrote a published history of the church.
She spent time most summers in Vermont and Cape Cod and traveled widely throughout Europe with friends and family. A kind and loving person, she had numerous friendships and the love of her extended family. She started and co-owned a successful 1960s gift shop named ‘Pickwick Papers’ where you could purchase a paper dress before pursuing charity work that lasted most of her life. She was always thinking about the other people in her life, bringing them together for holiday parties and remembering to call anyone she had not seen in a while. She and David were devoted to each other and their two sons, Christopher and John.
Predeceased by her husband and brothers, Arnold and Wallace Dunham; she is survived by her brother Bruce, her sons John, Christopher and his wife Melissa; grandchildren Alison, Ian and Alex and great grandson Benjamin.
