In memory of
CHARLENE BARLOW (Gammy) went home to dance with Jesus on June 16, 2020 at the age of 62.
Charlene was born on March 26, 1958 in Blairmore, AB and from the moment she opened her eyes she was an Angel to all who knew her.
Her kind heart, beautiful smile, spiritual soul and generosity reached far and miles and always will. Those she loved and those who loved her, know that she will forever be their angel watching over them.
"Just look for the sign, believe that I will see you, be near you and be smiling with you, she would say."
Charlene worked very hard as a young mother of two, to become a Licensed Practical Nurse and graduated from Alberta Vocational College in 1983.
She worked until 2003 as an LPN making memories with her nursing girls while spreading compassion and sharing laughs with her patients.
Left to celebrate her journey and continue her legacy is the love of her life, the man she was most proud of, Terry Barlow whom she married on April 5, 1975. Together, for 45 years, they made a pact to have a close, loving family with good morals, strong family values and to never give up.
Her greatest accomplishment was her family and making memories with her son and daughter-in-law, T.J and Shelly Barlow, her daughter and son-in-law, Lana and Jamie MacDonald and the glitter in her eyes, her grandchildren, Hunter and Summer whom she shared a very special spiritual connection and bond with. Not far away from her feet and always watching over her on her journey, was Char's faithful canine, Molly.
Also at her side and left to celebrate her life are Char's incredible and strong brother and sisters John Bazan, Lynn Dalke and Jeannie Shannon, as well as her best friend and kindred spirit, Kathy (Gordon) Langan. Char also has many nieces and nephews, extended family and friends who will celebrate the many cherished memories and laughs she brought to their lives.
Charlene wants those she loved to always remember "It's not how you started, it's how you finish."
A private family graveside service will be held. In lieu of flowers, Charlene has requested that donations be made to the Alberta Children's Hospital Pediatric and Neurology Clinic (www.childrenshospital.ab.ca). Condolences may be registered at www.fantinsfuneralchapel.ca.
