Patten - Charlene M. (Schools) McLaughlin, 74, peacefully finished her earthly journey, Tuesday, May 28, 2019, holding her soulmate's hand. She was born April 27, 1945, in Island Falls to Lizzie and Cecil Schools.
Charlene loved her Lord and Savior, her church and her church family. She especially loved her Bible studies and learning God's word until health prevented her from attending. Charlene loved the outdoors which made her a perfect life partner for her husband of 45 years, Charles McLaughlin of Patten. Charlene was very crafty and could make anything.
Charlene is survived by her husband, Charles; her daughter (and special treasure) Rachel Jett of Charleston, TN; two grandchildren who are her pride and joys, Charlie and Lauryn Jett; her son-in-law who she was very proud of, Mark Jett also from TN; her sister, whom she loved very much, Joan Duff from Sugar Hill, GA; many cousins, nieces and nephews, and a special niece she called her other daughter, Dallas Gerow of Glenburn. Charlene also had many special friends that she loved dearly. Charlene will also be greatly missed by her faithful and loyal friend, her Boston Terrier, Cooper. She was predeceased by her parents, Lizzie and Cecil Schools of Houlton and a brother, Jerry Schools of Houlton.
A Celebration of Life for Charlene will be held at 10 AM, Sat., July 6th, 2019, at the Stetson Memorial United Methodist Church in Patten with family friend, Steve Curtis, officiating. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Stetson Memorial United Methodist Church, PO Box 680, Patten, ME 04765-0680. To share stories and leave condolences please visit
