Charlene Meria Cress

Tuesday, December 11th, 2012

Charlene Meria Cress, age 56, of Sedro-Woolley, passed away December 11, 2012 at home.
She was born in Mount Vernon, December 5, 1956, to Charles Ray and Jean Lark (Coventry) Clement.
Charlene will be missed, as she was a very compassionate woman, well-loved and everyone’s friend; she didn’t like making enemies. She was crazy, easy to get a laugh from; liked music and loved her dog, Drake. She worked at Fred Meyer, and loved to read and do latch-hook.
Charlene is survived by her daughters, Kristie Joe Cress and Jessica Jean Cress; son, Karl Richard Cress; lifelong partner, Karl Rustad; grandson, Jacob Ryan Cress; sister, Jeanette Wicker and brother, Rodney and his wife, Jolene Clement.
At her request, no formal services will be held.
