If you walked into a place as a stranger to Charlene you would definitely leave with a new friend. She lived and loved to the fullest. She was over the top. Made you laugh when you were down, told you things you didn’t want to hear at times (No Filter), first one to call and sing Happy Birthday on your special day (at midnight). She was 100% always and loved whole heartedly. If you knew her you couldn’t help but love her the same. She had so much strive for life to watch her kids and grandkids grow. She could be a little stubborn and strong willed at times about things but it was only meant because she loved us. God has really gained a strong angel. RIP Charlene until we meet again. “In her words instead of saying goodbye. LATER!”
She is survived by her fiancé’ Carl Lavergne of Lafayette, LA; two sons Chad Savoie and wife Angel of Cankton, LA and Glenn Roger of Cankton, LA; two step-sons Carl Lavergne, Jr. and Chrystal of Youngsville, LA and Neil and Nicole Lavergne of Scott, LA; a daughter-in-law Brooke Benoit of Cankton, LA; eleven grandchildren Jayda Savoie, Gage Savoie, Jaycee Roger, Judsyn Roger, Zachary, Chasity, Kimberly, Anthony, Julia, Samantha, and Maci Lavergne; a brother Andrew and Yvette Breaux of Scott, LA.; a brother-in-law Terry Richard of Church Point, LA and six step-siblings Dot Barreaux, Doris Richard, Terry Breaux, Lorena Breaux, Keith Breaux and Tina Duhon.
She was preceded in death by her parents Virgie Gary and Robert Himel; two brothers Freddie Melancon and Robert Dale Himel and a sister Mary Ann Richard.

Condolences to all the family. Though she is pain free and no longer suffering, we will all miss her. She is reunited, celebrating and dancing with our beloved ones up in heaven. She has left us all with so many memories. Loved her birthday phone calls and the many hours spent talking on the phone, her cooking and so much more. Love, Marilyn Trahan
