Charlotte E. (Chi) Martzloff, 94, of Jewell, NY lost her battle with Alzheimer's disease on Friday, May 29, 2020, surrounded by the love of her family.

Thank you to all the kind, compassionate souls at the Masonic Care Community and elsewhere who laughed with her, sang with her, sat with her, and provided comfort, dignity, and respect while she gracefully and courageously fought her debilitating illness. We are comforted to know that "Mama" knows who "Mama" is again. Memorial contributions may be made to the Alzheimer's Association, Central New York Chapter, 441 W.
