Lena Charleen Gill, born Jan. 23, 1955, our dearly loved daughter, sister and friend, went home to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Sunday, May 27, 2012, after faithfully serving Him through ALS for the past year.

Charleen was the daughter of the late Herman H. Gill and Mary Calimer Gill. She was the sister of Cynthia Lorshbaugh of Hagerstown, Md., Denise Hutchison of Greencastle, Pa., and Jessica Colleen Rohrer of Greencastle. Charleen was preceded to glory by her sister, Rosemary Gill Stottlemyer.

Charleen loved her family and would want to mention her beloved nieces and nephews, Jeff Stottlemyer of York, Pa., Stephanie Lowery of Williamsport, Md., Robert D. Lorshbaugh of Hagerstown, Aaron G. Hutchison of Greencastle, Jessica Charleen Paris of Greencastle, Dylan Rohrer of Greencastle and Madyson Rohrer of Greencastle; and precious great-nephews.

Charleen was a member of the graduating class of 1973 at South Hagerstown High School. She was a faithful employee of Sears for more than 37 years and managed the shoe department for many years.

Char served the Lord, teaching Sunday school at Hagerstown Grace Brethren Church for more than 25 years, and continued to serve the Lord at Community Grace Church in Greencastle. She received the CE National Inc. award for Faithful Service to the Kingdom of God for more than 30 years.

Charleen loved people and has donated her body to research with Johns Hopkins University Hospital for the sake of others who have neurofibromatosis and ALS.

Charleen's Life Celebration will be Saturday, June 16, 2012, at 4 p.m. at Community Grace Church, 17 N. Washington St., Greencastle, with a dinner reception following.
