March 11, 1945 – Jan. 23, 2010

Charlene Curtis of Mukwonago, died on Saturday, Jan. 23, 2010, in South Carolina from injuries sustained in an automobile accident. She was born on March 11, 1945, in Hillsboro, the daughter of Arwin and Ruby (Sneath) Caucutt. Charlene was united in marriage to Jerry Curtis on Aug. 6, 1966, at St. Paul’s Catholic Church in Genesee Depot. After receiving a bachelor’s degree in education from University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, she later became a teacher at Rose Glen Elementary School in Waukesha for 23 years until retiring. Charlene had a passion for genealogy and was considered the family historian for both her and Jerry’s family. The most important thing to her was always her family. With a love of traveling, Jerry and Charlene renewed their wedding vows in 2004 on a beach in Hawaii.
