I was a classmate and neighbor of Charlene, though I hadn’t seen her in years. She was still beautiful. Deep sympathy to her family!

Some were friendly toward me, sometimes. Some were not, or it was a forced greeting. Charlene .... Oh my, she was friendly, always; EVERY TIME we meet. Smiles and a soft word were her gifts.

It i s a sad day when we see she has passed on. I'm betting her kids are a spitting image of her, in character and gifts toward others.

So sorry to see Charlene's obituary in the paper. I graduated with her in the Central High School class of 1955. Glad she had such a great life. My sympathy to all her family. Anna Marie Heddleston Wheeler.

In behalf of all the remaining members of Charlene's Central High School Wildcat graduating class of 1955, we offer our sympathy and condolence to her family and to all of her close friends. As the years continue to add up, we sadly mourn the loss of each classmate, recalling those good times we spent together with them during the early 50's. Today, we affectionately recall Charlene. We remember her as a sharp student and a spirited, valued participant in school activities. We will miss her.
