Charlene Eleanor Catlett, 82, of Circleville, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on April 27, 2017.
Charlene was born in Cedar Hill on July 3, 1934, to Robert G. and Dorothy Evelyn (Winn) Brobst and raised on her father’s farm that she loved so much.
Charlene was an Army wife and is survived by her husband, Lt. Colonel Richard W. Catlett; son, Don Marshall; daughter, Kelly Ann; son, Richard Eric (Barbara); grandchildren, Christina L. Catlett (Eric) Wiseman, Lisa Ashley, Drew Austin and Mollie Anne Catlett; great-grandchild, Viviana Rose Wiseman; nieces Susan Burleson and Vicky Davy; and nephews, Stephen Loucks and Rod Brobst.
Charlene was a very active board member of St. John Church of Stoutsville.
As a youth, she was active in 4-H and attended Pontius United Methodist Church. She loved music, but most of all she loved her children and grandchildren. She also enjoyed several years serving as a Red Cross volunteer at Berger Hospital.
While serving in the Army with her husband, she lived at Fort Knox, Kentucky, Pacific Grove, California, Fort Bragg, North Carolina, Fort Richardson, Alaska, Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, and Fairfax, Virginia. Her favorite places were California, but most of all at Fort Richardson, Alaska, where she was very active in the officers’ wife club and a very avid weekend camper.
Charlene was preceded in death by her parents; her first husband, Donald Stauffer; brother, Bobby Lee; sister, Barbara Evelyn; and her beloved aunt, Ethel Brobst.
A private funeral service will be held at the Wellman Funeral Home, Circleville, with Pastor Ted Davis officiating with burial to follow in Forest Cemetery. Friends may call from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday, April 28, 2017, at the Wellman Funeral Home, Circleville.
