Charlene Rosemary (Hazelip) Williams,

86, passed away December 12, 2021.  She was born in Indianapolis to Chester and Florence Louise Hazelip on October 6, 1935.  Charlene earned an Associate’s degree and began working as a stock broker at Raffensperger and Hughes Co.

Those closest to Charlene will always remember how hardworking and creative she was.  She loved photography and genealogy and was avid in documenting her family in photos and family trees. Charlene found satisfaction working in her yard and loved her flowers.  She also enjoyed swimming and listening to country music. Charlene was a selfless person who never met a stranger.  She always put others first and was happiest spending times with family – especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
