Charlot Ann Zirkle-Casto


Charlot Ann Zirkle-Casto of Alexandria, Virginia, went home to be with Jesus on Oct. 9, 2020, at the age of 76.

Charlot was born to Thomas Eugene and Georgia Pearl (Williams) Zirkle on Sept. 5, 1944 in Cassity.

She attended Tygart Valley High School and later received a Bachelor of Business when she was 50 years old. She retired as a program manager at the U.S. Department of Agriculture as well as an associate at Montgomery Wards. Every Sunday and Monday evening, Charlot had dinner with friends at the home of Francesco and Annegret. It was the highlight of her week. She loved traveling to gospel concerts with her sister, Judy, and friends. She also enjoyed spending time with family and walking her dog, Chase.

Charlot is survived by a sister and brother; Judy M. Fox of Ohio, and Thomas E. Zirkle Jr. of Pennsylvania. Also surviving her are her sisters-in-law and brother-in-law; Jean Barbour of Virginia, Becky Reeves of Virginia, Mary Casto of West Virginia, and Tim Casto of West Virginia. She is also survived by godchildren, Matthew Watson and Mariah Beery along with many nieces, nephews, and her beloved pet, Chase.

Preceding her in death were her parents, Thomas Eugene and Georgia Pearl (Williams) Zirkle, and her only son, Charles Robert (Robbie) Casto.

A graveside service will be held at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 18, at the Zirkle Cemetery at Cassity. The Rev. Glen Rader will officiate and interment will follow.

The family request everyone attending use masks and social distancing take place at the cemetery. In lieu of flowers, Charlot would have appreciated donations for breast cancer research at the Susan G. Komen Foundation or the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. The Tomblyn Funeral Home of Elkins is in charge of the arrangements for Charlot Ann Zirkle-Casto. Condolences may be expressed to the family at www.tomblynfuneralhome.com.
