The angels in heaven are rejoicing, our dear, sweet Char has returned home. A warm and caring woman, she was always willing to listen with a loving heart and happy to extend a helping hand where needed. While being a good cook, she never tired of the great adventure of always being ready and willing to eat out. Her light hearted spirit and a desire to leave a legacy of God's grace to her family and loved ones, as well as, those who lovingly attended to her during her illness, is what will live in our hearts. She is now with the angels and her beloved pets, and we will never get over missing her.Charlene is survived by her loving husband of 41 years, Jim Brindis; parents Cathrine and Charles West; sisters Pat Koerner and Jeri Prahser, brother Charles W. West; sister-in-law Barbara Brindis and brother-in-law Russ Koerner and Jim P. Prahser; nephews Greg Prahser, Ronald and Douglas Koerner and one special niece Jennifer Prahser Nielsen; great-niece Nicole Koerner and great-nephews Blake Koerner and McGuiness James Nielsen.
