At the age of 12, her family moved to Toledo, Ohio. She attended Historic St. Patrick’s School and was a 1943 graduate of Jessup W. Scott High School.

Charlene married the love of her life, Alfred J.

To Whom Stone
“I was told by my mother”
Why a stone with a name on it
Why does it always seem to be
A problem til then?
Is it to say that I was here
Or a chance to stand next to it again?
Letters of the alphabet
Design the stone,
But language doesn’t hold the key!
It is the stages of life
That alter ageless memory.

Mimi’s laughter will echo in all of our hearts forever. She was the monarch of our family and will be ever loved.

To Al, Doug, Pam, Glen, Paula and all your families,
We are so very sorry for your loss.
I can remember my very first impression of Charlene, so many years ago.
" This is a Real Lady."
After all these years of knowing her, my first impression remains.
She was truly a "Real Lady".
She was a fine example of what a Lady, wife and mother should be.
We have seen how all of you were so very good in caring for Charlene during her time of illness.
We think each of you, are a wonderful example of a families love.
So very blessed to have had her in your life as she was so very blessed to have all of you.
May you all find peace in your saddened hearts.

Prayers and blessings to you,
Bob and Debbie (Sayre)Williams
