Charlene was born in Elmira NY, a daughter of the late Donald J. and Eleanor (Miller) Mosher. She was also predeceased by a brother Gary Mosher and sisters, Candice "Candy" Boyles and Machell Bailey. Charlene is survived by her husband of 43 years Daniel E. Delany; sons and daughter-in-law, Daniel E.

Charlene was a 1972 graduate of Southside High School. She had worked at Chemung County Vital Records from 1972 to 1975. After the birth of her first child Charlene left the workforce to become a stay at home mother. After raising her three children she went back to work at BOCES as a teaching aide from 1986 to 2000. Charlene was an avid gardener, loved to shop and enjoyed going to flea markets. She was an exceptional wife, a devoted mother and a loving Nana to her grandchildren - her family was everything and all that mattered. Her greatest joy was spending time with her grandchildren "Beans," "Mac" and "Caitie Pants" and being a guardian angel to her husband. Family and friends are invited to McInerny Funeral Home, 502 W.
