Charlotte C. Dugina, 93, of Baden, formerly of Beaver Falls, died Monday, September 27, 2021 in her residence.
Born November 27, 1927 in Rochester, she was the daughter of the late Charles and Cecilia (Olson) Helsing. Charlotte had many passions. She kept a daily journal for over 40 years, she loved to bake, crochet, play word games on her Kindle, and color in her adult coloring books. When she wasn’t doing that, she loved to spend time in the mountains with “Pap”. She was a loving wife, mother, gram and great-gram.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Peter A. Dugina in 2018; two sisters, Twyla Delp and Nelly Burns; and four brothers, Edward, Ollie and Fredolph Lundell and Chucky Helsing.
She is survived by a daughter, Kathie (Robert) Copenhaver of Baden; a son, Steven (Cindy) Dugina of Center Twp.; three grandchildren, Kirsten Pitini and her husband Thomas Murin, Kelsey (Patrick) Currie and Madison (Tyler) Blake; and five great-grandchildren, Emmett and Elliott Murin and Ruby, Rhett and Opal Currie.

Keith Black for his friendship and spiritual guidance over the past several years.
