She loved to cook, often made homemade donuts for the teachers, and cookies for ROTC, even gifted her family with cakes and pies at Christmas. Charlene retired at Food Service Director at South Mississippi County Schools ( Rivercrest). She was sassy, witty, determined, and stubborn. Much of her time was spent tending to her children and her husband Gus. She was devoted to him beyond measure, making sure he had his coffee waiting on him every morning and a hot meal every night, even wearing a red dress to his funeral because he bought it for her. When she wasn't tending to the family or working, her hobbies included painting, collecting giraffes, gardening, sewing and shopping. It was said she never bought something that was not on sale.
