Charmaine and David had a love for camping with their son, Nathan, in the Smoky Mountains and Florida beaches for family trips. She obtained a Bachelor degree in Fashion Design from Lipscomb University in Nashville to fulfill a lifelong passion. She continued to pursue fashion design by creating her own business, Palangga. Inspiration for the business name came from her father’s nickname for her, meaning “Beloved”.

Charmaine was a brave, strong, selfless, and loving woman. She always had a smile on her face and had a contagious laugh. Charmaine never met a stranger and always made everyone feel welcomed. She will be greatly missed by everyone who had the chance to meet or know her. She will always be our angel in Heaven watching over us.
