Charlen Landry Obituary

Charlen M. Landry, age 72, a longtime Wilmington resident, passed away peacefully on August 30, 2023 at the Sawtelle Hospice House in Reading. 

Charlen was born on October 31, 1950 in Winchester, and grew up in Wilmington. She was the beloved daughter of Charles and Emily Landry and grew up as one of four siblings. Charlen had many wonderful times growing up in Wilmington and made life-long friends. Charlen graduated from Wilmington High School with the class of 1968.

After high school Charlen went right into the workforce taking a job in the Parts Department at General Electric. She eventually became the manager of the department and received awards for her work as its leader. After a 25 year career with GE Charlen retired in the mid 1990s. Retirement for Charlen just meant a change in career and she went back to school, eventually receiving her Associates Degree in Occupational Therapy. Charlen then took a job with the Lowell Public School system as an Occupational Therapist. She worked in Lowell for many years and found true joy in working with children.

When not working Charlen was dedicated to her friends and family. She loved vacations to the mountains and to the beach, often planning trips with her siblings and their children. She never wanted to be left out of the fun. Charlen loved being with people. She often took trips to the casino with her brother David and in later years different senior groups. Though she would visit and travel with many different groups her favorite was The Jenks Center in Winchester. There Charlen made many friends and memories that she cherished. Charlen also had a fondness for Reader’s Digest, being an avid subscriber for her entire adult life. 

Charlen was the beloved daughter of the late Charles and Emily (Ravagni) Landry. She was the cherished sister of David Landry and his wife Kerrin, the late Emily Theresa Prescott and her husband Stanley, the late Maureen Hebert and her husband Richard. She is also survived by her nephews Albert Prescott and his wife Judy, Charles Prescott and his girlfriend Lori, Robert Landry and his wife XVK and Christopher Gallagher.
