  1. Charlene, AKA, Sherrie, was my wonderful & caring Friend for over 50 years. She was a beautiful Christian woman, inside & out and the perfect example of the woman described in Proverbs 31. She will be deeply missed. Many Prayers are being lifted up for Carl. Melanie, Karla & David & their families. Glenda Maxey

  2. Charlene Faith and her husband have always been caring. They were more of grand parents to my son, Esosa. They would spend time with him and take him places like to the stadium. When he joined the Air Force, they always gave him advise and prayed for him. Charlene Faith lead my three kids to salvation and guided them on their Christian journey. Charlene was a God fearing woman. My family and I miss you so much. May your soul rest in peace.
