WATERVILLE – Charlene “Charley” Donovan passed away on Nov. 18, 2021 at Lakewood in Waterville after a long illness. She was born August 10, 1949 to Richard and Doris (Overlock) Royce.

Charlene grew up in Augusta and graduated Cony High School. Her wry sense of humor and baking skills will be greatly missed. She didn’t say she loved you with flowery words, but she showed you with her baking skills or her gifts. Charley bought Christmas presents that were truly thought out. Often one would wonder “what the heck am I going to do with this” only to find that it was exactly what you always needed.

Charley is survived by her life partner of over 30 years, Mark Daigle; daughter, Melissa (James) Cantrell; grandson, Richard Donovan; mother, Doris Royce; and brother, John (Sandra) Royce.

We would like to thank the amazing staff of Lakewood Continuing Care and Beacon Hospice for their care and compassion.

In lieu of flowers,

donations can be made to the Waterville Humane Society
