Charlene Cassimere was born on July 14, 1954 to the parentage of Mack Davis, Jr. and Irene Cassimere Alexander in Opelousas, Louisiana. She transitioned on December 6, 2020, in Mesquite, Texas.
Charlene graduated from Palmetto High School in Palmetto, Louisiana. Upon her graduation from high school, she moved to Texas and attended Job Corp in McKinney where she focused on Business and Accounting. When she completed Job Corp, she attended a Business School in Dallas, Texas. She made her home in Dallas and had her first child, Rachel, at the age of 29. Five years later, she was blessed with her son, Aston. Her family was complete, and she was so excited to be a mother. She enjoyed her career in accounting. However, she felt her calling was elsewhere. She ventured into the world of sales and fell in love. Charlene was employed by Trophy Nissan and was distinguished as Saleswoman of the Month many times. She started in the Sales Department and later became Internet Sales Manager until her retirement.
Affectionately known as "Pluto" to her brothers, Charlene grew up in a home with all boys which made her a natural caretaker. She had a passion for cooking; she was made famous for her amazing gumbo and mouth watering cornbread dressing. She will always be remembered for her infamous peach cobbler.
Charlene absolutely had a genuine love for people. She was a social butterfly and never met a stranger. To know her was to love her. If she could have sent healing to the whole wide world, she would have. Every soul that came in contact with her had an instant place in her heart.
A woman of great faith and perseverance, Charlene was a devoted member of Gospel Tabernacle Church under the leadership of Bishop David E. Martin. She served on the usher board and was a caregiver for so many. She loved serving in the House of God and was known for her radiant leadership within the church community. She would pray for you before you even knew you needed prayer, as she had a special connection with our heavenly Father. Charlene was innovative and spiritually grounded and would always be the first one to go the extra mile for her church family which carried over into her personal life. Her moral and structured nature will be fondly remembered by so many, as she would always lend her shoulder on which any one could cry - whether it was tears of pain or tears of joy. Charlene was always there to help you carry your burden or celebrate your joy. She knew God wholeheartedly and was willing to shout it from any mountain top. Her voice will always be heard, even in her afterlife, with nothing but love and encouragement. She will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her and remembered by more than a few.
