Shortly after, Pawsy pursued modeling jobs at a local retail store in Homestead, Florida.  She would later go on to marry the late Hariles Gilchrist in 1963 and became a homemaker.

Pawsy adored spending time at home with her family and shared such a beautiful bond with her grandchildren whom she spent most of her time raising.  The nourishing love she provided will never be broken nor will it be forgotten. Thank you for being a STRONG WOMAN MOTHER!

Also, a special thanks to Vitas Health of Broward - Team #158 for the care they provided to our mother, Charmaine Andre, CNA/LTC for caring unconditionally.
