Charlene A. Hyslop of Siren, WI passed away peacefully on Sunday, November 15th at Sacred Heart Hospital after a long battle with cancer.
Charlene was born October 2, 1937 in Marshalltown, Iowa to Charles and Myrtle Ridley. She was adopted as a young child by Carl and Ruth Bergstrom of Comstock where she was raised.
She attended the Comstock grade school until 1952, then attended Cumberland High School where she graduated in 1955.
Charlene married John Hunter in 1956 and together had 4 children, Ted, Valerie, Marilyn and Daniel. They later divorced, and she married Robert Hyslop of Webster in 1978 and enjoyed many years together.
