Carleen was a warrior. She loved her husband of 44 years, children and grandchildren with every ounce of her being. She will be greatly missed by those who knew and loved her.
Carleen continued to give, even after her passing – Carleen donated her body to St. Louis University School of Medicine in hopes that her body can help lead to a cure of Lymphoma. By offering the gift of her body, her death, in turn, promotes the precious gift of life.
