Charlene loved to cook and was always willing to share her knowledge and recipes.

Charlene touched many lives with her warm heart and understanding nature. She truly was a pebble in the pond of life that gently pushed so many others in positive directions. She never gave up on anyone and believed that change was always possible. Charlene herself would scoff at this description, but she was truly an amazingly selfless women who will be missed by anyone who had the privilege of knowing her.
