Charlene was born November 30, 1984,
in Miami Beach, Florida, to Willie and
Lorna John. In 1990, the family relocated
to Andover Estates and was blessed with
a fourth brother, Will, aka ‘Blackie,’ as
she affectionately called him. Charlene
attended Miramar High School and as
a teenager, was considered a homebody.
She spent most of her time chatting on the
phone with her friends. When she did go
out, she would either go to the movies or
game night with them. Bowling was her
favorite. She also loved ackee and saltfish and brown stew chicken.
Even though Charlene had no children of her own, her nieces and
nephews filled that void. She was like a mother to them, helping
them with their homework, giving them advice, and even scolding
them when need be. As a matter of fact, her last words were to
her newly born niece, Meilani, who she referred to as “Fat stew.”
During a Facetime chat with her, she told her that they were going
to be best friends and that she, Meilani, was going to wear a baby
wig to her parents’ wedding.

How coincidental that in her adult years she ended up working at
Comcast as a customer service specialist doing what she loved best,
talking on the phone. And you bet, she was very good at it because
she ended up with 10 awards over a six year period. Charlene had a
personality that was bigger than life itself. It illuminated wherever
she was, and that is one of the reasons why everyone was drawn to
her. She was fun to be around and was always trying to resolve or
pacify any issues at hand with phrases such as “Calm down, I got
this” or “Relax, I got you.” She was loved by all and will never be

Charlene is survived by her mother, Lorna John; three brothers,
Billy, Marlon, and Mister; two sisters, Cindy and Melinda; and a
host of other relatives, including aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews,
and cousins.

On behalf of the family, I would like to close by thanking everyone
who is here today as well as those who have sent their condolences.
We have received countless phone calls, texts, visits, thoughts, and
prayers. They have been comforting during this difficult time and
have been a reminder of the impact that Charlene had on others.
