So sorry for your loss. Charlene was such a beautiful person. Remember all the fun times Jamie & I had with Charlene & Pete. She always brought her sugar cookies to her office visits when I worked for Gary LaMonda & she always had some for Jamie when he delivered her medicine to her. Just a very thoughtful & caring person. She will be missed by lots of people. Jamie & Rena Bailey

We are sad this morning to learn of Charlene's death. Charlene was the sweetest, cheeriest lady we've known. She was always doing nice things for others. Her Little Yummy cookies were wonderful. She shared her recipe with me, but they were never the same. I'm sure the difference was the love that went into hers. I always enjoyed visits with her when I saw her at CCC during my visiits to Moberly. Recently my contact with her has been by phone or letter. Our sincere sympathy and love to Judy, Susan and the family. Charlene will definitely be missed! Love,, Paul, Nita and Tracey Enochs
