    To the family, I’m deeply sorry for your loss. I did not know Charlene personally but I have known Mark Jordan my whole life. By what I’ve read about her life she was a beautiful soul. It’s a sad time to loose someone, especially when the holidays are so close. I lost my wife in April so I’m very sympathetic to your loss. I pray for comfort and peace at this difficult time for your family. God Bless.

Charlene Adelin (Golden) Caudill, 60, passed away on December 10, 2022. She was born on March 14, 1962, to Billy Wann and Joyce (Kirkwood) Golden in Chicago, Illinois.

Charlene was an amazing mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. Music was a big part of her life, she loved singing and dancing.
