Charlene Walker Cavin, 84, of Austin, passed away May 16, 2018. She was born in Huntington, TX, on May 10, 1934. Charlene graduated from Galena Park High School and then worked at Prudential in Houston.

Charlene had a green thumb and a sweet tooth. She enjoyed cooking, gardening, sewing, action movies, and a good game of Scrabble or Uno. Charlene was patriotic and loved all things Texas, particularly wildflowers and her two favorite teams, the Texas Longhorns and San Antonio Spurs. She was a member of Great Hills Baptist Church and lived out her faith daily with a heart full of kindness, grace, and generosity.

Charlene was the loving mother of Tim Cavin and wife, Lori, of Georgetown, Teri Daeschner and husband, Troy, of Pflugerville, Todd Cavin and wife, Joyce, of San Antonio, and Toni Poulain and husband, Marc, of Liberty Hill.
