She is survived by two sisters, Carol Ann, wife of James Feister, of Lancaster, PA and Mary (Fran), wife of Clark W. Colby, of North Huntingdon, PA; and several nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband, Edward S. Thompson III, who passed away in 2005.

Charlene will be greatly missed by her family and friends and pet beagle, Daisy.

The family would like to thank all of her friends from IU 13 for their generous expressions of support.

I am saddened by the loss of Charlene. She truly was an amazing person. I will always miss the way she said hello to all of us in the office. Gone but never forgotten.

Carol and Fran,
So sorry to hear this news. I have so many fond memories of Charlene from school, Jobies, and later when she visited me here in Seattle. I know she never quite got over losing Ed. May she be at peace. My thoughts and prayers to you and your families.
God Bless,
Carol Preston Paulsen

sorry for your loss. “Charlie” was a sweet friend from high school and Jobies. Quick to laugh, she had a good attitude toward life. She will be missed by all who knew her.
May God comfort you.

Dear Kay and Fran –
I was shocked to hear about dear “Charlie” . I have so many wonderful memories of her and your entire family. We were besties in our Wickersham days and during a fierce blizzard, I was staying with you all and had the best game of Monopoly ever! So many trips to Steton Place to open for the season or close up for the winter. We lost touch but I have never forgotten my dear friend. Makes me sad that we weren’t in touch when she became ill. Thoughts and prayers to you both!! Love, Sue

We were so sorry to hear about Dutch. She was a great neighbor and we will really miss her. Always had a smile and a great attitude. Praying God will give you peace through this difficult time.
