She spent much of her professional life working in the insurance industry.
Charlene’s greatest joy was spending time with her family. She supported all of her kids and grandkids in whatever activity they were in. Whether it was baseball, basketball, piano recitals or dance she was there cheering them on.
Charlene lived her life to the fullest. She loved to play golf and often challenged her grandkids to a round. As an avid Utah Jazz fan, she and Gene rarely missed watching a game. She was also known for her delicious cooking and enjoyed hosting family gatherings. She loved to camp and vacation, and enjoyed traveling with her family all over the western United States and Canada in their RV. She also enjoyed playing bridge with her friends.
