Charlee Philebaum, 6 months, of Indianapolis, IN, passed away on Sunday, December 10th, 2023 after a battle with Congenital Heart Disease.
Charlee was born on June 1st, 2023 to Cydney Clouse and Cody Philebaum in Indianapolis, IN.
Charlee was predeceased by her grandmother Anitra Sharp and many great-grandparents including Henry Clouse Sr., Dave Philebaum, Bill and Sherry Sharp.
Charlee is survived by her mother Cydney Clouse; father, Cody Philebaum; sister, Avarie Philebaum; great-grandmothers Susan Mitchell, Rosalie Philebaum, and Janet Clouse; great- grandfather, Robert Mitchell; grandmother, Sherry Clouse; grandfathers, Aaron Philebaum and Henry Clouse Jr; and aunts, McKenzie Philebaum, Haley Philebaum, Mackenzie Clouse, and Kayla Clouse. She is survived by further great aunts and cousins.
Charlee touched many lives, although she was only able to meet a handful of family members during her time. She was an inspiration and a fighter until the very end. She is greatly missed.
Charlee loved to be sang to and enjoyed the Bluey theme song. She also enjoyed being read to, having her face rubbed, feet played with, and showing off her beautiful gummy smile.
She was a one in a million gift who taught many the value of time and love. Although she was taken too soon, she was able to give her family a lifetime of love. We are eternally grateful for the chance to know and love her.
May she rest in peace; until we meet again.
There will not be a service for our sweet Charlee. We ask you to celebrate and honor her life in your own way.
We also ask that you give your babies an extra long hug tonight.
The parents would like to personally thank the staff at Riley Children's Hospital for making Charlee's 6 months possible. We would not know our little girl without them.
They would also like to thank the Love, Lucas foundation for helping them navigate this difficult time.
In lieu of flowers, we would be pleased to have you support either Love, Lucas or Riley's Children's hospital in Charlee's honor.
