Charlet’s impact upon her family, friends, and community reaches far and wide. Charlet provided child-care for dozens of children spanning many years, as well as being the favorite school bus driver for years while living in Wapakoneta. She also worked with special needs students in both Wapakoneta and Tipp City schools, where she retired in 2018.
Charlet has SO many friends! So many, that it would be an endless list! That was how she was, a friend to everyone. She loved to get together with her friends for Card Club, loved to travel, and loved the beach and sunshine whenever she could have it. Char “hated the cold!” which she would say every winter. She loved her family and friends with zeal beyond measure and her presence will be deeply missed, but never forgotten.
