Patterson Sr. and Esther Willard Wilson Patterson. Her husband Delbert Edward Blevins, son Matt Blevins, daughter in law Patty Blevins and brothers Pierre Patterson and James L. Patterson Jr.

While raising her boys, Charlene and Del enjoyed camping, hunting and fishing. Every year Charlene and Del took month long road trips throughout the United States and Canada. They visited all of the upper 49 states throughout their travels, especially enjoying Alaska. She was extremely proud of being born and raised on Galveston Island and enjoyed any historical books about the Island. Charlene took great pleasure in walking the beach looking for seashells and sand dollars. She was always excited to watch the Gulf waters roll into the shore when there was a storm brewing, and tracked that storm system like a chief meteorologist. Charlene was a huge fan of the Houston Astros, Texans and Rockets, and followed car racing. Charlene never stopped stretching her mind, she loved learning and was very quick with the questions, sometimes following one question with another before the other person was able to give an answer.
Charlene was an avid bowler and managed the Alvin Bowling Center for many years. She attended many state and national bowling tournaments throughout her years as a bowler and then became a must have on the trip traveling companion with her team after she no longer bowled. Charlene enjoyed life to the fullest and was always the life of the party, full of ideas and information. Charlene will be missed and remain in the hearts of her family and friends.
