I worked with Charlene for 20+ years. We shared many celebrations as well as challenges. I will never forget the day she helped me check all 500+ students for head lice! She was always willing to help both staff and students . She will be greatly missed.

Charlene, Chuck as several of us buddies called her, was in my life practically as far back as I can remember and what a gift I was given for her friendship Rarely did you ever see her without a smile and then when you did, you could fast make it disappear. That was just a part of her personality to let things go and live on, which is a lesson for us all. So many hold onto yesterday's anger, but not Chuck in the relationship we had. I'd have to say that we really became close when I started teaching at Plain City Elementary. Emma (another secretary), Jenni (the art teacher), Chuck, and I always found a way to laugh and giggle through the day about something. I miss those days because we started letting them slip away as we each went to different schools. When the three of us heard Chuck was sick, we went to visit her immediately and we at least got to see her smile and try to laugh off the hardest thing she ever had to cope with in her life. We thought we were finally back together to share more great times, but we're all so sad that instead we've lost one of our best buddies. Chuck is looking down and smiling though because she knows that her loss taught the three of us a valuable lesson and we will not lose touch with each other again. Thank you, Chuck, for the giggles galore! Love you lots!!
