Carlene Wilda Copeland, 83, of Bolivar died Tuesday, Dec. 29, 2009, at her home.

The daughter of Cletis and Vaughn Taylor Carns, she was born Nov. 25, 1926, in Polk County and grew up in Bona. A resident of Bolivar for the past 27 years, she was a homemaker.

Preceding her in death were her parents; husband O. R. Copeland; brothers Kenneth and Ted Carns; and sister Margie White.

Survivors include her beloved companion of 26 years, Harold Sherman; five children, Sherry Jones of Peoria, Ill., Daniel O'Brien of Aldrich, Jamie Copeland, Leslie Munt, both of Fresno, Calif., and Gary Copeland of Yreka, Calif.; two sisters, Peggy Baker of Collins and Carolyn Kaplan of Omaha, Neb.; 14 grandchildren; 17 great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.

You will be greatly missed the way your vibrant personality could light up a room and your compassion and wonderful sense of humor. You were a wonderful mother, great sister, beautiful grandmother and aunt. Rest in peace. Love your family.
