Van and I will always cherish the memories of Char and her time at Firehouse ❤️ Char was such a beautiful person, she touched our life’s and our customers with her sweet personality and her love for floral design.

We express our deepest love and sympathy to her family for their loss.
Much love Van & Wendy Turner
Deepest sympathy for you and your family
I was looking for another friend's obituary and saw this. I knew Char and Todd and Chris about 20 years ago. All great people. We kind of lost contact after my military deployment in 2002. My sympathies are with you all.
I remember our craft days and lunches. I have so many cherished memories of you that I will always hold dear to my heart. Glad you are at peace now my friend.
I will never forget craft days and lunches with you. You were a huge influence in my life and I will never forget the many memories I cherish of you. Rest in peace my dear friend.
