Betty Ann Charles, age 86 of River Falls, Wisconsin, formerly of Oakdale, Minnesota was born to Eternal Life on March 15, 2022 at the River Falls Area Hospital. Betty was born to life on January 14, 1936 in Hastings, Minnesota; the daughter of Phillip and Lena (Krueger) Doffing. She was raised in Hastings where she graduated from high school. Following this, she furthered her education at the Rasmussen Business College in the Twin Cities. Shortly thereafter, her life took a new twist. She was united in marriage to Richard Manley Charles Sr. at St. Boniface Church in Hastings.  This union was gifted with six amazing children. Betty loved every minute of being a homemaker. She knew her calling was to be the best wife and mom she could be. Not only did she raise her children in a loving environment, she instilled in them their Christian foundation to which they were guided in life by. Betty grew up playing cards with family and friends. This fun continued throughout her life as she always looked forward to the laughs that came with an evening surrounded by family playing cards.

Betty will be celebrated and greatly missed by her children: Rick (Deb) Charles, Randy Charles, Jeffrey (Bonnie) Charles, John (Rene) Charles, Timothy (Kristi) Charles, Thomas (Shanyn) Charles; her loving grandchildren Christie (Brian) Juneski, Jennie (Chris) Berends, Steven (Melanie) Brier, Travis Charles, Linday (Dustin) Begyn, Liz (AJ) Cavazos, AJ Charles, Emma Charles, Al Charles, Bryanne Stitis, Madelyn Stitis, Talbot Stitis, Jakob Charles, Joshua Charles; her adored great grandchildren Izzy, Bianca, Taylor, Parker, Dani, Madlyn, Luke, Hailey, Kenndalle, Alison, Rolin, Wheeler, Paisley, and Easton.

  • Betty was a great person! I was glad to have the pleasure of meeting her! I still remember the time she told me to leave my wife alone for awhile after hearing about me and my wife being pregnant with baby number 4. 😂🤣. Also enjoyed the memories we had sitting around the table with her and others playing cards at the cabin. David Miller
