We are at a loss for words with the loss of Charlene. She was an amazing teacher and such an advocate to our son Ashton who spent the last two years in her classroom. She was gentle and patient and always listened to him and our concerns and comments as parents raising a child with special needs. I will never forget the day we both connected with speaking about our faith and the peace it gave us in life. I know she will be an amazing tool in the Lords hands ongoing now and until we all meet again. Sending prayers of comfort to lift your family during this difficult time.

Don, I was so sorry to hear about Charlene. I'm at a loss for words but you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

At Liberty Elementary School, I was always impressed by Charlene's steadiness. Charlene would walk down the hall with the students, or be in the classroom, and all around her felt calm (which is not an easy feat with preschoolers). Her presence was always reassuring and dependable. I noticed this just in our brief interactions, so I know the students she worked with had a safe place to be just by being around her. For someone to give off that feeling, so strongly, speaks volumes to her character. She made a difference and left an impression. I know she is still doing great things, even in death, and we will never forget how she made us feel being around her.
