Charlotte E. Werner, 88, Edgar, passed away on Monday, Nov. 23, 2020, at Aspirus Wausau Hospital.

She was born on Nov. 22, 1932, in Athens, daughter of the late Alvin and Emily (Bromm) Muenchow. Charlotte was raised in Athens and graduated from the Athens High School. On August 4, 1951, she married Orville Werner at Trinity Lutheran Church, Athens. She cared diligently for Orville until he died at home from emphysema on June 20, 1995. After his death, she moved to Spencer, then to Stratford, and finally to Wellington Place Assisted Living in Rib Mountain.

Charlotte had a remarkable work ethic, working at Murray Machinery as a secretary and did not fully retire until age 78. She was a talented gardener, planting beautiful flowers everywhere she lived. She had a special place in her heart for dogs and had several over the years. Charlotte loved her whole family, but her greatest joys were her grandchildren. Nothing brought a smile to her face like a visit from Rebecca and Kodi. She also kept busy delivering meals on wheels to those in need.

Survivors include two sons, Brian (Jill) Werner, Edgar, and his children, Brittany, Shawn and Sierra, and Perry (Jennifer) Werner, Edgar, and their children, Rebecca and Kodi.

Besides her parents and husband, Orville, she was preceded in death by her son, James; her daughter, Crystal; two sisters: Mabel Viegut and Ruth Nadeua; and one brother, Ralph Muenchow.

Public visitation will be from 10 a.m. until 12 p.m. (noon) on Wednesday, Dec. 9, 2020, at Peterson/Kraemer Funeral Home, Edgar. Private services will follow at Noon with Rev. Gail Sowell presiding. Burial will be in the Edgar Cemetery. Social distancing will be observed and face masks will be required to attend.
