Charlene, affectionately was known as grandma to everybody. Her pride and joy were her family, her children, grandchildren and many friends she considered family. She was a devoted caregiver to anyone in need. Her love could be shown through her food and she looked forward to every Holiday at her home where she made the best pies and was famous for her tortillas. She loved to camp and look forward to the yearly trip with her children and friends. Before her eye sight failed her she loved to yard sale and enjoyed visiting with all. Grandma will truly be missed by all but she is now flying high with angels and family.
