She worked as a telephone operator, then a secretary and as an aid to a Chiropractor. She raised three children to successful careers who are now very involved in their communities.

Charl was one of the most positive people I've known. I will miss her laughter and her beautiful, sweet smile. Sending prayers of comfort for all the family.
