I met Charlene at Farneys on Jefferson. She would talk to me about her experiences at the Casino working. Condolences to her family.
I remember her and her kids coming to visit along with Aunt Marie to our farm in Darlington and of course, the Fiedler/Studier Reunions. Those were times every family got together once a year to "catch up" with our relatives. My mom and dad were Delbert and Stella Bradt so your mom was my first cousin. Sorry for your lost.
