January 5, 2017

Charmaine L. Gummerson, age 67, of Chippewa Falls, died on Thursday, January 5, 2017 at Lake Hallie Memory Care.

Charmaine was born on April 17, 1949 in St. Paul, Minnesota. She was adopted in 1956 by the late Oscar and Ingaborg (Wikstrom) Johnson. After graduating from Strandquist High School in 1967, Charmaine moved to Minneapolis. She first worked as a Switchboard Operator with Northwestern Bell Telephone Company before earning an Associate's Degree in Medical Transcription and then worked as a Medical Records Secretary at a doctor's office.

Charmaine's greatest joy came from being a mother. She would often say that as a child her biggest wish was to have two children, a boy and a girl, and that wish came true. In addition to being a mother, Charmaine loved gardening, arts and crafts, playing the piano, listening to gospel music, and watching movies from the 1930s and 1940s.

Charmaine is survived by her daughter, Kelly Gummerson; son, David Gummerson; sister and brother, Bonita and Dan; cousin, Elladean Wikstrom; and many friends.

She was preceded in death by her cousin, Gwendolyn Wikstrom.
