Charlotte was born on February 20, 1925, in Bakersfield,
California, to Ruby Caroline Brunk and Max Bayless Sr. She
had two brothers: Herbert Bayless (her twin) and Max Bayless
Jr. She married the love of her life, Forest Max Paul, on
May 23, 1948. They were happily married for 62 years, until
his death in 2010.
Charlotte graduated from East Bakersfield High School and
attended Bakersfield Junior College. She was employed in
a variety of places, but her favorite was working at Temple
City High School. There she managed the student store and
became an unofficial mentor to several students. The students
honored her by dedicating the 1974 class yearbook to her.
Charlotte had a wonderful green thumb and everything she
touched grew beautifully. She won several blue ribbons for
her apples and people would stop in front of her home, in
Fallbrook, California to take pictures of her flowers, especially
While she had many interests and hobbies, her favorite
“hobby” was her family and friends. She loved
people and life with a passion. Her kindness was as legendary
as her Key Lime Pie.
We would like to thank everyone who cared for Charlotte,
especially her wonderful caregivers from Aspen Senior Care,
Ashford Assisted Living & Memory Care and Curo Hospice.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to any
charity dealing with our countries’ veterans, whom
held a special place in her heart.
