Charlene grew up on a farm near Hackneyville, where she was proud to say she was driving a logging truck at the age of 13. She finished school at Hackneyville High, having played on the basketball team and being a cheerleader for the football team.
She proceeded to graduate from a beauty school in Montgomery and, being licensed, she worked styling hair in Alexander City. She met a dashing young man, her future husband, Dewey, at a tender age and waited for him to return from WWII, at which time they married. Soon, children were added to the household, Betty and Russell.
Charlene and Dewey were very involved in their churches and communities, living long stretches of times in both Pell City and Albertville. Dewey served at times as Sunday School director and Charlene as Woman Missionary Union leader. Both were hard working in their love and dedication to their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Charlene was a loving daughter, sister, wife, mother and grandmother and will be sorely missed by all who knew her.
