Shortly after she moved to Washington State and met the love of her life: Brian Pray. He knew within a very short time Charlotte was the right one for him too. They married on October 19, 1990 at Machias Community Church (Snohomish, WA). They have two Children: Lori and Drew Pray. They enjoyed so many of the same interests. One hardly saw one without the other (soul-mates), married 29 years. Charlotte was preceded in death by their first born infant son: Scott Michael Pray (1994) and her father: Edward Zins (2008). She is survived by her husband: Brian: children Lori and Drew, all of Everett, WA. Also is survived by her mother: Marilyn Zins of Bismarck, ND. And Sisters: Rhonda ____, MN.; Joleen Evans, MT; Mindy Bray, KY; Brothers: Russ, Mike, and Joe Zins of ND, and numerous nieces and nephews. She died of health complication, mainly diabetes at hospital in Everett, WA on April 5th, 2020. A memorial service will be held at a later date.
She was affectionately called "CHAR" and was loved by everyone, especially children. She's such a kind gentle-soul, was easy to talk with, and was truly a life-long friend, always such a pleasant person to be around, and wanted the best for others. She was a "Peace-Maker", wanted everyone to get along and enjoy each other. She had a special phone greeting, "Hi Sweetie", how are you doing? (for: sisters and nieces). Char was truly the "sun-shine" to our life. She's cherished and missed greatly.
Last summer she returned to Williston, ND to celebrate her 30th High School class reunion with fellow class-mates and had so much fun re-connecting with old friends. We are so glad she was able to enjoy this special time together, it was her last visit to North Dakota.
Char has worked at Heads-Start (over 19 years) drove food van, served breakfast and lunches to 2 separate classrooms. She really enjoyed her job, co-workers, staff and especially the kids. It was the perfect job for her.
