Obituary

I went to Charlene's funeral only to find that there was no room left in the chapel for friends to be seated or to stand. Many had to stand outside because all available space had been taken.
What a fitting tribute to a wonderful woman. Charlene was unassuming and rather quiet but never afraid to be in the middle of people and be actively involved with them. She was the epidome of a nice person. You hear people described as sweet, and I guess that can mean anything, but Charlene was sweet in her sprit toward others. She was kind, thoughtful and considerate.
She not only did a good job at work, but she was dedicated to her family and her faith. All of the quiet strength and positive outlook was available to her when she became ill.  I would ask how she was progressing and she was always determined and hopful.
I thank God I have met and known for a brief time, Charlene. People like her became my instiration and hope. She encouraged us to make the same effort and accept the challenges of life with love, courage and faith.

From Becky Angel Allen on April 15th, 2015
Charlene was my cousin and she was 6 years older than me.  She was the sweetest
woman and never had an unkind word for anyone.  She loved her family and would do anything for anyone.  The Lord must have needed her because he took her too soon and she has been immensely missed by everyone that I know.  She loved life and lived it to the fullest.  I can't remember ever seeing her without a smile on her face.  She was ready to meet the Lord when she passed away.  She had no reason not to.  I loved her and will always miss her.  I'm thankful that I had the opportunity to be part of her family and will always think of her and miss her.

From Becky Allen on April 13th, 2015
Image Nancy was 6 years older than me so we weren't real close.  She loved her children and grandchildren with all her heart.  I was the rebel and she was the perfect one.  We lived in a two story house growing up and she tried to push me out the window several times.  My older brother Randy (9 years older) and her would always tease me and their favorite thing was to tell me that mother cried when I was born because she wanted a boy.  She had kidney failure and was on dialysis for 12 years.  She just recently passed away from congestive heart failure.  I will miss her tremendously but I have precious memories that no one can ever take away from me. She is free of pain and with all our relatives and friends that have passed.  Rest in Peace Nancy.  I love you. 
 
From Angela Nungaray on April 17th, 2015
Nancy can be described as many things.  She was a caring, loving, selfless, hardworking woman who always tried to help others.  She was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother who always thought of her family before herself.  Nancy was a very strong woman, battling renal failure for the last 12 years of her life.  We are forever grateful and very appreciative for the care Nancy was under these past years.  Words cannot express our gratitude to all of her doctors and nurses, you guys were like her second family.  God has added another Angel in heaven when He took Nancy home.
 
 
 
Nancy enjoyed entertaining her family and cooking and baking for others.  She enjoyed sewing and making baby blankets for her family and friends.  Nancy played the piano in church when she was 10 years old and she played for many years during church services.  She also loved to play the piano for her family, something she really enjoyed.  She spent many years square dancing with her husband. She enjoyed playing games, cards, and playing the slot machines.  She also loved being around her family and most of all her grandchildren. 
 
You will live in our hearts forever mom, Nancy, and grandma.  We will never forget what you taught us.  Give Granny, Papa, and Dwyane a big hug for us.  We love you!

From Letty Watt on February 11th, 2015
My friend C Annie, how I've missed you all these years.  You were suppose to sing at my wedding in 1968, but instead you married that same summer.  We shared so many unruly adventures in grade school and Jr. High.  I remember our picnics at Tar Creek.  It was our own special Terabithia, and the water was even clear back then.  I remember one day at NEO behind the Administration building, when you jumped in the little car that my dad built and drove off down that hill crashing into curbs and trees.  I was in trouble for ages after that, but it was all for fun.   I remember spending the night with you a few times in grade school when your parents had created that special room with fresh air for you, to help you breath and to keep your lungs as healthy as possible.  One of the reasons your dad taught you to sing opera was to help your lungs develope, but I think there was just a whole lot of talent within you.
 
After you died your mother shared your poetry and art work with me.  I was most impressed with your depth of thought and creativity.  Guess we really didn't apply ourselves in school, but we certainly had fun together and created mischief at NEO, as little girls can.
