Death of Charlene Hogue
We were so saddened to learn of the death on Tuesday, December 22, 2015, of Charlene Hogue, wife of Reverend Wayne Hogue, our former Chaplain.
Rev. Hogue and Charlene joined the Fredericksburg Seniors in 2000. They were featured in the June 2015 Newsletter, where Rev. Hogue mentioned “he first met his lovely wife in Findley, NY, at a camp meeting to study the Bible, and later married on October 19, 1958 in the Buffalo, NY, area.”
We always saw Charlene at her husband’s side and was a faithful and loving wife to Reverend Hogue. Mrs. Hogue will be missed.
This is the additional information promised:
