  • Dear family of Charmaine,

    May God surround you with His love and grace during this time as you gather.

    My sister, Beverly Spelbring, was a teenage friend when the Dittmer family was in Colorado Springs. My sister is now in heaven, too. I am sure their reunion was wonderful.

    I have a special place in my heart for the Dittmer family and my dear friends Ted and Julia Dittmer is a treasure.

    I know the loss is unbearable at times but I pray for all of you to make your way forward. Only God can do the impossible. Beauty from ashes.

    In His love,
    Deby Kenyon

  • When I met Charlie I was in a pretty dark place I had recently lost my wife to cancer and was thinking about moving back to Bellingham where we came from until Charlie came into my life and changed it. I thought that I could never love someone again but she helped me realize that life goes forward and sometimes you have to just work through the most difficult times and that sometimes you can’t do it on your own.
    She was a very strong person who would do anything for her family and friends she loved her sons and would tell me stories about them, she was so proud of them and their success in life. I enjoyed sitting with her listening to her talk about her boys and how proud she was of them.
    They were very close to her heart as well as her grandchildren that she absolutely love and would brag about them all the time.
    I have some great memories of her being with her grandkids and the way she would handle situations.
    I enjoyed listening to her talk about her family and things that she did when she was growing up.
    I love the way she would
    just start singing to a song that was playing on the radio in the car on our trips and I miss our Sundays cooking her dinners and pampering her.
    She was such a beautiful person with a very kind heart.
    I will always love her and miss her
    love you Charmaine

  • Charli is my Bestfriend , we’ve been friends for over 41 years. We had good and bad times together and adventures that I will never forget. She even sang at my wedding. Are kids grew up together. She had an unwavering love for her kids, grandkids, family, and friends who became like family. She always took the time to make everyone feel special. We shared secrets, dreams, tears, and laughter. Charli was constantly working on herself, but those who knew her knew that she was beautiful just as she was. Until heaven, my friend. I will love you always.

  • Let me tell you about my sister Charmaine Sue Dittmer/Reeve! She was my best friend, my secret keeper, my travel buddy, my warrior protector. Her love for family included her sons, her daughter in law, her grandchildren and her extended Indiana family. It was a fierce love and heaven help anyone who said or did anything to hurt her family or her friends. When she introduced me to her new love John and she said “he loves me like I am”, I knew she was happy! Her friends were also loyal and fierce about their love for her! They took care of her, opened up their home for her in her final days and for that I am ever grateful! I will forever miss my sister, my friend…..she was my hero!
