Charlene enjoyed playing cards with her favorite ladies – Carol, Bonnie, Connie, Pat, Krista, Tia, Cristy, Gini, and Pammy every Tuesday prior to moving to Lima Manor. When she wasn’t playing cards, she enjoyed entertaining friends, decorating her home much to the chagrin of her daughters, rearranging furniture, shopping, eating at the Casa Lu Al, pulling pranks on others, and calling her daughters three to four times a day. Most of all, she enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren whom she loved to show off.
