  1. One time Charline got some of her first cousins to start emailing each other. Most of us were in our 90s. I will always cherish our emails and phone calls.
    After Charline went to the nursing home we had to write letters. I will miss her.

  2. We are very sorry for your loss we will be praying for the family strength in this tough time. Charlene was a great neighbor and friend. In 1994 I moved next to Charlene I would go over her house and help her with emails and financial. She was a very loving lady and lived a great life we will definitely miss her

  3. Ms Charline was a sweet lady. I knew her thru her friend Roselyn(Rose) Huweiler. She was a delightful lady that made us laugh often. Prayers for all.
