Charlotte Passe-Carlus, a French teacher in the Department of Languages and International Studies, passed away on April 6 after a battle with cancer.
Carlus was born in France. She and her husband Laurent Passé have four children; Amélie, Valentine, Paul-Emile and Emma Passe-Carlus.
Carlus and her family lived in France until 2008 when she had an opportunity to teach at BYU-Idaho.
Her family shares in her obituary, “Charlotte was not just a pillar and a source of strength and guidance for her family but also for many of her students and colleagues. She saw the potential in people and pushed them to seek the experiences to reach it. Many students sought council from her because they could feel that she truly cared for them and wanted them to succeed. She gave much of her time and efforts to the furthering of the study of language.”
Carlus was 50 years old at the time of her death.
