Charlene Alice Walton Smith died peacefully and surrounded by family on March 22, 2014 in Torrance. Born in Oakland, CA on Leap Year Day 1932, to Charles and Myrtle Walton, Charlene had two older brothers, Jay and Thomas and followed Jay to South Bay where she found employment in the aerospace industry. Preceded in death by the love of her life, husband Darrell, they met in Hermosa Beach in1952, soon married and started a family, Darrell (Gentil), Michael (Sheree), Cherrell (Jimmy) and Zac (Marci). The growing family moved to Redondo from Hermosa Beach in 1970, where Charlene resided until her passing. She was an avid painter, gardener, naturalist and lover of all that is nautical, witnessed by the subjects in her wonderful paintings. Above all things, she was a phenomenal mother and grandmother, loved by eight grandchildren and many more beyond her family. A Celebration of Life for Charlene will be held on Wednesday, April 23, at 2 PM, at the "Redondo Beach Center for Spiritual Living" located at 907 Knob Hill and Prospect Avenue, Redondo Beach, with reception to follow in the church Hall.
