Carlene was a friend, one of my patrons in my beauty shop, and had the best produce stand around. I remember her every time I decorate my Christmas tree with the ornament she brought me when she visited the Holy Land. She was always thoughtful and kind. She loved those Cubs.

Sending our condolences to the Family for a wonderful lady who obviously lived a full life. I will always remember visiting the produce stand and their delicious sweet corn!

Dear Family,. I was a classmate at Notre Dame, class of 40 with Carlene. We had great time then.
Not many of us left as I am close to 101.
May God grant Carlene peace on her journey home.
