Carlene was talented. She was a gifted painter, accomplished at sewing, enjoyed crafting and working on DIY home projects. She enjoyed bowling, gardening and watching the wildlife that came up to feed. Carlene always had a good time going to the beach and looked forward to outings with her sisters. She loved spending time with family and friends especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. We were blessed that she shared her gifts and values with all. Carlene was a faithful Christian who was active in her church. She gave her time and talents in both church and community.
