Charleen M. Squier


Age 93, passed away peacefully on October 10, 2022 at Ascension St. Joseph Medical Center.

She was a devoted daughter, loving sister, beloved “Auntie Char”, dear friend to so many.

Charleen was born on November 6, 1928 at Silver Cross Hospital in Joliet to Harry F. and Clairibel B. Squier.  She remained a lifelong resident in the community.  Char graduated from Joliet Township High School, Class of 1946.  After graduation she worked as an Insurance underwriter/analyst for 38 years at Commercial Union Insurance Company in Chicago.  She loved traveling in England, Ireland, Europe and even safaried in Africa!   She retired early at the age of 55 and this afforded her plenty of free time to do all of the things she loved.  Topping the list would be her love of Golf.  She played in the Duffers Golf League and The Lady Elks Golf League and played until the age of 90.  This brought her so much joy and brought out her competitive spirit!  She also loved playing Bridge and enjoyed her numerous groups and developed wonderful friendships.  This she continued to do until the last few weeks of her life.   So many other activites brought her joy over the years; working as a YMCA Camp Counselor at Camp Tecumseh, Volunteering at St. Joseph Medical Center Gift Shop and Hospice, participating in the Annual Gnome Festival and was a talented crafter of handmade items galore!  Swimming was also a big part of her life and loved spending her time at the Joliet Beach Club, The Charlie Club, and Naperville Centennial Beach.   Char was a lifelong Chicago Cubs Fan and was elated to see them win the World Series in 2016!  A cat lover indeed, she adored her sweet “Annie” and gave her such a loving home.  Char was sharp minded until the end and taught us all how to live life to the very fullest! 

She was a remarkable  women, who leaves behind to cherish her memories her adoring Nieces Jenny Hubl (Mark), Donna Peterson, her nephews Jim Aspel, Dan Aspel (Ursula) and Rick Aspel and her many loving grand and great nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her two sisters Betty J. Aspel and Mary L. McKeown.

As per Charleen’s wishes cremation rites were accorded.  She did not wish for any services to be held.
