After a courageous battle with cancer, Charlene went home to be with her God on Sunday morning, January 14, 2018. The family feels great comfort in knowing that she is free from pain and enjoying the joy of being Home with other dear family members. No matter her life circumstance, she always had a kind word for everyone, was quick with her humor, a genuine smile, and was as generous as she could be....with her time, her willingness to help, and her genuine love for all people. She loved music and was particularly touched by worship music. She so richly blessed lives everywhere she went, and will be so missed.
