Condolences

My condolences to Gene, Rick and Gena. Charolotte was one of my mother's best friends. She was one of my bowling partners many years ago. I have very sweet memories of her. Sending prayers and hugs to the family.

Condolences go out to Leroy and family. Leroy was a substitute janitor for Green local schools, and we would talk about his wife. Sending prayers and positive energy to the family.

Leroy- You have become a member of our Green Local Family and our thoughts and prayers are with your family during this difficult time.

Thoughts and prayers are with your family at this time of loss. I worked with Charolotte at Bell and Howell and loved her sense of humor and kindness. Family was very important to her and I know she will be missed by all.

We remember Charlotte, Arlene, and the Brenneman family from the East Union parish, as children, and as neighbors and friends of our parents and grandparents. We were sorry to hear of your loss, and the news of Charlotte's passing brought with it a lot of shared memories. (From the family of Herman and Dorothy Lautzenheiser of East Union township)
