The daughter of Leo and Margaret (Madore) Charette, she was born in Fort Kent, Maine, where she would marry her husband in 1953. She was a long-time resident of New Britain before moving to Berlin. She worked at Sherri Cup in Kensington and was a caretaker first and foremost, making a home for her large family as they needed one. She loved potatoes (spuds), fiddleheads, Thanksgiving pies, singers Hank Williams and Loretta Lynn, movies on the Hallmark Channel, the Waltons, the Golden Girls, afternoon soap operas, the smell of lavender and the woods, blue hydrangeas, and boiled dinners surrounded by her family. She was a loving person who will be missed by many.
