Charlene (also known as “PP” by Richard) were High School Sweethearts and have been married for 43 years. She worked as a bank teller for the Bank of Montreal for 40 years. She had a natural passion of nurturing others and well known for her motherly heart. She placed her trust in God, demonstrating His love by her authentic connection with people.
