Charmian Joyce Millicent Buck

Charmian Joyce Millicent Buck was born September 29, 1917 in Saskatoon Saskatchewan, British Columbia to Arthur and Lulu Melora Jacobson. When Charm was a baby, the family moved to live with Arthur’s parents in N. Hutton North Dakota. Charm was a young girl and had a brother, Maurice, when they moved to Minnesota to live with family on a farm, large enough to host a tent revival in the front yard.

California came next with the lure of picking crops. They lived in a mosquito netting house on the beach while working in the crops. Seattle was the next stop, where Charm and her family spent many hours with picnics at Green Lake and trips to Woodland Park Zoo. She finished High School in Seattle, then worked at Firland’s TB Sanatorium to pay her way through Northwest Bible Institute, now Northwest University. Charm was in the first graduating class. Years later she was honored as alumnus of the year, and Charm was also to receive the honor of Woman of the Year for Boise.

Following college, Charm and a long-time friend, pastored a church in Silver Lake, Washington, until she was introduced by one of her parishioners, and sister to the love of her life, Roland Buck. They married in 1942, and pastored at Union Gap, Washington, Gooding, Idaho, and finally moved to Boise in 1950 to pastor Bethel Assembly of God. Subsequently they built two new facilities, with the name changing to Central Assembly.

Roland, her precious love, passed away November 6, 1979, having pastored in Boise for nearly 30 years. She was also preceded in death by a son, Terry Lee, her father, Arthur Jacobson, Her mother, Lulu Melora Jacobson and her brother, Maurice Jacobson.

Charm is survived by her four beloved children, Sharon White (Alan), Charm Reimer (Arnie), Ted Buck (Linda), and Marilyn Fuller (Kurt). She is also survived by 14 adoring grandchildren, and 30 great grandchildren. The surviving grandchildren are; Angela White, Terry White, Bryan Arneson, Heather Poliszuk (George), Heidi Beazizo (Jeff), Cherry Shervik (Ryan), Charmian Sangsland (Marvin), Ted R. Buck, Christin Cano (Joel), Lindsay Rojas (Jonathan), Allyson Buck, Carly Buck, Carissa Fuller, Nicole O’Neill (Lucas).

After Roland’s death, she became Pastor Charm to the seniors, planning many trips and events. She had an office at the church until she was 90, and continued even then to minister to the seniors.

Marilyn and Charm were blessed to care for their mother, Charm, in their homes until she transitioned to assisted living at Meadow Lake Village at the age of 98. One of the activities directors commented that the atmosphere of the place changed when Charm Buck came to live there. She spread her joy and blessed residents and staff alike.

She went home to be with her Lord April 19, 2018 at 100, plus 7 months!

Our angel mom was loved by everyone she met, and heaven rejoiced when she came home.
