I remember Charlene Edwards from Roosevelt Jr High School.  Good memories during those years in Jr High.  May her soul rest in peace.  Until we all meet again.  God Bless.

Charlene was a wonderful lady that I continued to know and have contact with for many years after our 1965 Graduation. One very courageous and wonderful lady. She married a life-long friend of mine, Fred Duguay, and I would see them out and about in and around NB frequently. I had the pleasure of meeting them in Florida on more than one occasion when they packed up and moved to Long Boat Key managing a wonderful old property (cabins) on the beach there. It was a rare turtle nesting ground. Those turtles had "the" life with Charlene as their caretaker. Happy days indeed they were. Despite her 30 year battle with cancer, Charlene always was upbeat and committed to a full and happy life. God Bless her. Her laugh and positivity will always remain in my heart and memories. RIP, dear will be missed by many of your lifelong friends. Yes, Rest in Peace, dear Lady. You have earned a place among the angels.  ☺ ♥
