Charlene Truax Chambersburg, 75

Charlene Truax, 75, Chambersburg, born January 15, 1938, departed this life to be present with the Lord on Sunday, January 20, 2013, at her home.

She was preceded in death by her mother, Edna E. Truax, who died in an auto accident in December, 1981; her father, Rev. Floyd A. Truax, who died in June, 1996; and a stepmother, Marian Divelbliss, who died in January 2012.

She is survived by four brothers: Dean (and wife Phyllis) of Big Cove Tannery; Roger (and wife Carolyn) of Needmore; Dale (and wife Marion) of Berkeley Springs, W.Va.; and Gary (and wife Wildena) of Crystal Spring.

She had been privileged to live happily in the home of the Brian and Myna Horst family for the past 22 years. She enjoyed going to church, eating out and doing other things with the Horst family and others. Though having disabilities from birth due to an apparent oxygen deprivation in delivery, thus needing some care and supervision, she was able to be somewhat self-sufficient until her later years. She was a joy to her families and at times provided entertainment with some of her antics and sense of humor.

Funeral services will be held Thursday, January 24, 2013, at 11 a.m., at Pleasant Ridge Church of the Brethren, Needmore.

Visitation will be Thursday, January 24, 2013, from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Pleasant Ridge Church of the Brethren, Needmore.

Interment will be in the church cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Linda Mellott, treasurer, 5337 Sipes Mill Road, Warfordsburg, PA 17267.

Arrangements were made by the Howard L. Sipes Funeral Home Inc., McConnellsburg.
