Charllet L. Bond passed away on May 14, 2010 at her home in Lewellen Nebraska. She died after a long and courageous fight against ovarian cancer at the age of 63. She never saw cancer as a death sentence – she looked at it, as another one of life’s challenges to overcome.

She was born in Boulder, Colorado on April 13, 1947. Char loved to fish, camp, play cards, and dance. She is survived by her husband and best friend of 38 years Preston R. Bond Sr. She also had 6 kids, Melissa Ehrlich of Rifle, CO, Raquel Pressler of Parachute, CO, Preston R Bond Jr. of Myrtle Beach, SC, Steve Bond of Longmont, CO, Brenda Felizen of Elko, NV, and Amanda Sanders of Bailey, CO. Charllet also had many wonderful grandchildren: Sami and Ben Felzien, Cody and Trent Sanders, Alicia Ehrlich, Trey Jessie and Kaleb Pressler. She also is survived by a sister Shirley Leith of Boulder CO.

She had lots of friends and family who loved her dearly. She could absolutely brighten up anyone’s day. She lived her life to make others feel happy and loved. She cared for so many and her laugh was extremely contagious. Her smile, her love, her unselfishness, her true happiness will never be forgotten. She truly did her job as an angel here on Earth. Her motto in life was you can never be too rich or too poor to live life to the fullest.

The family has requested in lieu of flowers, to please send a donations to a memorial fund care of Charllet Bond to Alpine bank 100 E 4th St. Rifle, Colorado 81650.
