Rasch, Charlene (Fritz)
Born on April 4, 1938, Charlene Brandes (grandma cookie) to Charles and Letitia Brandes in St. Louis, Missouri. She grew up with her brother Charles (Holly) Brandes in the Holly Hills area and attended Southwest High School. During this time, she developed a love of life and empathy for others that extended through her children James
(Susie) Fritz, Robert (Ann) Fritz and Kathy (Rick) Drapp, and her step-children Terry, Johnna and Tom Cooke, and her grandchildren Mellissa (Mark), Matt (Ashley), Derek, Nick, Samantha, Conner, Ryan and Abigail and her great-grandchildren Elizabeth, Kody, Layla, Madison and Max. Preceded in death by her loving husband, Richard Rasch, Charlene was a most beloved wife, mother, grandmother and aunt who dedicated her life to family and friends. Charlene always had a kind word and a soft shoulder to lean on during the troubled times of life for family and friends. Always a shining example of hard work and dedication to family that we, her family, will miss, remember, treasure and emulate. Special Thanks to her personal care giver, Debbie Hughes, who has become a part of our family.
