Obituary ~Forthcoming~

Charlene Pickerel, 85, born on September 21, 1931 and passed away at 12:11 AM on October 25, 2016. Asleep in her bed, with her son Dan sitting next to her, she simply stopped breathing at 11 minutes past midnight. A good death for sure.

~A Wake at The Beach~

We realize that because of the location of the wake some will not be able to attend. In lieu of attending, please leave a note, remembrance, photo, or a story about Charlene here on her memorial site. Her family would love to hear from you.

Memorial Tributes
This tribute was added by Erin Pickerel on 3rd November 2016

"I will miss you Grandma. I loved all your layers, colors, character and your honesty.
I got your eyes, your name and so many life lessons from you.  You taught me and Jesse how to stop and appreciate nature, art, hard work, travel and a love of animals.  You taught us that you could be happy and penniless and how to persevere when opportunities don't present themselves. You taught me how to drive and gave me some of the greatest recipes.  I'll always cherish the summers we spent at your house and the long trips we took as kids, up and down the West Coast (Thanks for letting me always sit in the front). Thanks for making time for us, and for showing up and being a wonderful grandma in our lives.  You were the bridge that connected us all together and I will miss you. Thank you for everything.
Love, Erin Charlene Pickerel"
