  1. Lit a candle in memory of Charleen C. Gray

  2. My husband and I met Charleen and Hank on the day we moved in next door in December, 1999. They were wonderful neighbors to us both. After both our husbands passed, we would often chat outside. I often called her to ask her “nursely” advice. Once I fell and hit my head and she rushed over to check for a concussion. I would pick up her mail and newspaper when she went to visit her family. She was one of the nicest people you would ever meet. She was a wonderful friend to me I already feel her loss deeply.

  3. Charleen n was a college classmate of mine at Villa Maria college in Erie, Pa – she had such a mild manner about her one could not help but feel comforted just by speaking with her – “the Girls” will miss her dearly – Virginia Pelkowski, Erie, Pa

  4. I have many fond memories of Charleen and her siblings at many family gatherings when the Stumpf and Bindseil families were growing up near one another in Erie, PA. Deepest condolences to Henry and family from all of Charlene’s relatives in the Bindseil family.
