Charlene was a teacher at Isaac Beaulieu Memorial School for 25-plus years. She had a passion for teaching, she loved her students and her students loved and adored her. She always looked forward to the yearly Science Fair with her students. She loved the Lake-Life, enjoying every summer at Halls Beach in her camper. Charlene was our Bean Bag Tournament Champion in 2021. She enjoyed playing Sandy Bay Radio BINGO. Charlene loved spending every holiday with her mom and dad with her closest family and sons. She devoted most of her life to raising 5 amazing sons and grandsons, whom she loved very much and would do anything for them. She was such a loving and caring soul; she would help out anyone when needed. She loved playing Candy Crush and playing various card games at the lake with her old ladies. Charlene enjoyed attending concerts and had a love for music, especially Country music. She took many road trips to Winnipeg with her son Aidyn and loved taking trips to Alberta to see her Grandsons.
Charlene will be greatly missed by all that knew her.
