Born 4/28/36, passed away peacefully at home on 7/18/21 at the age of 85. She leaves behind her daughters, Pamela Mitchell (Daniel) and Lisa Aronson (Alan), her granddaughters Paula Massei and Melanie Riley, her brother Dennis Michael as well as many nieces and nephews.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Raymond and Adeline ( Sally) Villeneuve, her husband Ronald, and her sister Susan Lacy.
For all that knew Char, she loved to travel, play golf, pinochle, poker, bowling and Scrabble, which she loved to win. During her life she worked at Steven's Steakhouse in Elmhurst as a bartender for 30+ years and later co-owned a women's clothing consignment shop, the Walk-In-Closet located in Bloomingdale. Through the years she acquired numerous health issues, including Macular Degeneration. She was lucky enough to have a large group of friends that would "cart her heinie around" when she was unable to drive any longer. Her spunk and independent nature kept her family and friends on their toes. In lieu of flowers, we ask that you mix yourself a cocktail or pour a glass of wine, go bowling, play cards or have a heated game of scrabble. The internment is private.
