    I’m truly at a loss for words. Char was the most giving person I’ve ever known. She gave time, energy, love, resources, knowledge, encouragement, hot dogs, heck, she’d give you the shirt off her back if you needed it. She certainly led by example, and everyone who has ever known her has been blessed and bettered by the relationship. I’m sure of it.

  10. Sally Nosich condolence:

    Char’s death truly saddens me. She was probably the first friend I met in Downers Grove and immediately had us over and made us feel welcome. She was a dedicated nurse and provided a loving home to Dave and her children. She always took my kids in and was such a loving generous soul- always there if we needed her! My condolences to Dave and the kids. Char will always have a special place in my heart. Safe passage Char and God bless.
