Charlotte Jane Insley

October 31, 1937 — June 25, 2023



Charlotte J. Insley, of Girard, Ohio, went home on Sunday, June 25, 2023, while a patient at the Hospice House, following an extended illness. She was 85.

Charlotte was born October 31, 1937, in Harrison County, West Virginia, a daughter to Ralph L. and Lorraine (Hayes) Benton.

She graduated in 1956 from Garfield High School, Akron, Ohio, and later in life, studied business administration at Youngstown State University. 

On August 16, 1957, she married a gentleman by the name of William H. Insley. He was the love of her life and together they raised three daughters.

She worked as the Office Manager for Ohio Diesel Fleet Supply, Youngstown, Ohio, for over 25 years. In addition, she was the treasurer at Central Christian Church, Hubbard, Ohio, as well as the Timber Point Villas.

Charlotte was a proud member of the Central Christian Church and the Order of Eastern Star, Sharon, Pennsylvania.

In her spare time, she enjoyed sewing, crocheting, bird watching, and playing the piano. However, spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren, gave her the most joy.

Survivors include: her daughters, Beverly J. Anderson (James L., Jr.), of Elyria, Ohio, and Donah E. Clower (Gary), of Vienna, Ohio; grandchildren, Christopher L. Clower, Christina M. Jones, Marcia D. Johnson (Jimmy), Jennifer RJ Dillon (David), Michelle L. O'Neil (Donovan), Kevin W. Schiefelbein, and Nick K. Schiefelbein (Kim); 13 great-grandchildren; and her fur kids, Bambi & Bonnie Belle.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Bill, who died August 29, 1996; daughter, Susan D. Jones; and siblings, Marilyn "Judy" Sparko and Blaine L. Benton.
