Charlene Bero (Cross)
Charlene E. (Cross) Bero, 72, of Fairfax passed away Saturday, March 3, 2018 surrounded by her family at UVM Medical Center after a long battle with Crohn’s disease. Charlene was born July 24, 1945 to the late Eugene and Elizabeth (Barrows) Cross. She was a lifelong resident of St. Albans and Fairfax VT.
Charlene was a devoted animal lover both domestic and wild. She was a country girl at heart that loved the outdoors. Camping, camp fires, long walks in the country and bright sunny days were among her favorite things. She loved working with her flower gardens whenever she could and was always on the lookout for something beautiful to plant.
Charlene was a redheaded firecracker even when she didn’t feel well; always ready to give a smile, tell a story or offer advice. She was a generous person who would do what she could to help a friend, "she broke the mold" as she would say and will be dearly missed.
