Resided in Nashville, TN


Charulata "Lata" Rao, age 69, passed away in Nashville, TN on December 5, 2017. Born in Kudal, India and immigrating to the United States in 1973, Lata felt a true calling to nursing and worked as a nurse for 30 years at Tampa General Hospital in Tampa, Florida. She was known for her compassion and care towards everyone she encountered as well as her exquisite Indian cooking skills, knowledge of all things seafood, joy for entertaining, passion for travel, and love of singing and classical Indian music. She was a devoted and caring mother to her only child, Amy Krishna Rao Mohan, and moved to Nashville, Tennessee in 2012 for the greatest joys of her life, her grandchildren, Arnav, age 5 and Prem, age 2. A visitation will be held Sunday, December 10th from 2:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. at Phillips-Robinson Funeral Home followed by a private cremation. A celebration of life will be held in Tampa in early 2018. In lieu of flowers, her family asks that you take a moment in honor of Lata to cherish, love, and hug those around you. We'd ask that any monetary donation go toward dementia research, an organization advocating for death with dignity, or a charity of your choice.
