Agnes Virginia "Virg" Charlo

July 25, 1933 — May 18, 2019

Agnes V. "Virg" Charlo, 85, passed away Saturday morning, May 18, 2019 at St. Patrick Hospital in Missoula, surrounded by her family.

Virg was born July 25, 1933 in Arlee to Pete Asencio and Cecille Cullooyah. She was a member of the Confederated Salish & Kootenai Tribes. Virg attended school at the Ursulines in St. Ignatius. She married Louis B. "Johnny" Charlo on April 28, 1952, and they made their home in Arlee. They moved to California, Washington and Idaho where Johnny worked various jobs. They later returned home to Arlee. Virg later worked as a caregiver for her aunt, Agnes "Oshanee" Kenmille.

Virg enjoyed the casino, her family, her chihuahuas, going for rides in the mountains with her sister Madeline, Elvis (who she got to see once while she was pregnant) as well as thrift shops, yard sales and the dollar store where she liked to buy things for her grandkids, great grandkids and add to her own collection of knick knacks and other great deals.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, her brother Benjamin Asencio, her son Louis Charlo, her daughter Charlo Dick and her grandchildren Kenneth and Rose Lilley and Rosalie Charlo.

Survivors include her sisters Madeline Finley and Josephine Gonzales, her brother Max Asencio, her children Wahneta (Ken) Logue of Portand, OR., Francine (Joe) Dupuis of Pablo, Vivian "Sissie" Charlo, Virginia "Tiny" Charlo, Mike Charlo, and Charles (Zelda) Charlo all of Arlee, MT, 40 grandchildren, 105 great grandchildren and 20 great-great grandchildren as well as her special cousin Francis (Wilma) Cullooyah, her canine sidekick, Goofy, and many other family and friends too numerous to name. She also raised four of her grandchildren whom she loved tremendously: Johnny “Shawn,” Sunny, Kao and Wesley Charlo.
