Charlene R. "Char" Richard

September 28, 1949 — July 1, 2020

Charlene R. Richard, age 70, of Appleton, passed away on July 1, 2020. Char was born on September 28, 1949 in Chicago, Illinois to Esther Bernstein. After attending college she worked in medical records with an Orthopedic Specialist. She was married to the love of her life, Chuck Richard III, and they had 31 wonderful years together until he preceded her in death on December 26, 2008.

Char was a loving woman with a huge heart. She loved spending time with family and friends, boating, road trips, Appleton Newcomers & bunko social groups, going out to dinner, and movies. One of her favorite activities was her regular “Movie Nights” with Jeff and Angie. She was a member of Apostolic Truth Church in Appleton and enjoyed going to church regularly. She loved the ocean and recently was able to take her dream vacation, which was a Caribbean cruise with Jeff and Angie where she got to swim with dolphins & stingrays, observe exotic animals, and just relax in the ocean. It was a family event that Jeff and Angie will cherish forever.

She will be sadly missed by her son Jeff (fiancée Angie Mader) Richard and Randy Richard, sister Barbara Mazzarino, many members of Chuck’s family, the Mader family, her beloved dog Annie, as well as many other relatives and friends.
