Marian Millicent Charette
February 04, 1929 ‒ April 11, 2018
Marian Millicent Charette, formerly of Lexington, passed away Wednesday, April 11, 2018, in NHC Place in Gallatin, TN surrounded by her family. She was 89.
She was born February 4, 1929, to parents Ray M., Sr. & Rhea (Johnson) Rapp in Cleveland. After Marian graduated from Euclid Shore High School with the class of 1948, she attended Fenn College (now Cleveland State University).
On August 30, 1952, she married Reginald R. Charette and together they raised five children. Marian briefly worked as a secretary at Western Elementary in the 70’s but her main focus was on creating a loving home for her children and husband.
In her spare time, she took pleasure in bird watching, gardening, her dog Smoky… and all God’s creation. Everything was beautiful in Marian’s eyes. With Reginald, she volunteered with the Red Cross and the American Cancer Society. But above all things, Marian cherished her husband and nurtured her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
She is survived by her loving husband of over 65 years, Reginald Charette of Gallatin, TN; children Linda (Robert) Blevins of Franklin, TN, Deborah Bosch of Lexington, Pamela (Kenneth) Carver of White House, TN, Brent Charette of Harrison, OH, and Jeff (Mechelle Vail) Charette of Ontario; eleven grandchildren, and eight great-grandchildren.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by siblings Ray Rapp, Jr., Arion Moore, Evelyn Sokol, and Patricia Kollar.
A mass of Christian Burial will be offered on Saturday, April 21, 2018, at 10:30 a.m. in Resurrection Parish with an hour prior of calling beginning at 9:30 a.m. Rev. Father Nelson Beaver will officiate with burial to follow in Lexington Cemetery.
Contributions in her memory to the Alzheimer’s Association may be made at her services.
