She was born May 5, 1930, in Thomas County, Kansas, the daughter of John and Maude (Spriggs) Charles.

She thoroughly enjoyed playing computer games; particularly Farmville. She enjoyed sewing and bowling. She was a good 'ol country cook and definitely had a sweet tooth. She made her dogs meals every day.

(Randy) Elliott and sister, Kay Charles. She was preceded in death by her parents, husband and sisters, June Decker, Frances Slaughter, and Dorothy Charles.

Cremation is planned and services will be held at a later date at Memorial Park Cemetery, 3616 SW Sixth Ave., Topeka. Memorial contributions may be made to Helping Hands Humane Society 5720 SW 21st, Topeka, KS, 66604-3720.
