Robert preceded her in death on March 30, 2000.
     Elerine had many wonderful experiences in life including working as a clerk at Ben Franklin in Hurley,  as a caterer and a housekeeper at the Holiday Inn; but most of all, she enjoyed being a wonderful mother and even better grandmother. She was a very caring person and had a heart of gold. She had many hobbies that including camping, fishing, and spending time cooking for her family. She often spoke of her love of her dog Trixie, a Boston Terrier. 
     She was preceded in death by her parents, Benjamin and Elerine Chartier; her husband, Robert; brothers, Roland and William Chartier; and sister, Lois Lewinski; and her son-in-law, Guy Fleming.
     Elerine is survived by her sons, Robert Jr. (Joanne) of Hurley, Wisconsin and Ronald (Marty) of Whitehall, Wisconsin; daughters, Gail (Harland) Stone of Hurley, Wisconsin, Mary Fleming of Gile, Wisconsin, and Paula (Robert) Sellhausen of Kimball, Wisconsin; ten wonderful grandchildren; twenty-eight great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild.
     Interment will take place at St. Mary’s Cemetery in Hurley, Wisconsin in the spring.
