  2. Joyce Millett says:

    She was a special lady who was a dear friend of my mother Flossie. I do not remember a time when I did not know Charleen and her sisters. I remember their father walking by to and from his job at the mill. She was a fixture in the insurance office on the Main Street of Plainwell and in the Baptist Church where we all grew up. She enjoyed a long life with many travels. My sympathy to all the family who will miss Charleen.
