Charlene Marie (Hryniewich) Rowe, 69 of Worcester, died of natural causes unexpectedly on Jan 5, 2019.
She was the beloved mother of Jessica Rowe and husband Alessandro Pezzati of Philadelphia and Nathaniel Rowe of Worcester.

Afterwards she moved to Chicago, IL where she taught art, married and lived on a farm in Wisconsin.
