Strength and honor are her clothing; she shall rejoice in time to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom, and on her tongue is the law of kindness. Proverbs 31: 25-26
Charlotte Ann Thompson Brown, age 81, of Bristol, TN went to be with her Lord and Savior on Saturday, August 5, 2017 at her home. She was a lovely, thoughtful giving wife and mother. She will be greatly missed. She was born in Plant City Florida, a daughter of the late Carl and Beulah Thompson. Charlotte received her Master’s Degree from ETSU. She was a teacher for many years in the Bristol, VA School System and later served in the School Board office until retirement. She was a devoted member of First Baptist Church of Bristol, VA until declining health issues in recent years. Charlotte was preceded in death by her only brother, Ronald Neal Thompson, and her great love of 60 years, Charles Gordon Brown. Together, they built a home and a business, and traveled the world, always enjoying the life they built together surrounded by friends and family.
She is survived by her daughter, Cheryl Ann Brown of Bristol, TN; son, Charles G. Brown, Jr. and wife Barbara of Fuquay Varina, NC; grandsons, Jacob and Jared Stufflestreet; step granddaughters, Erin and Allison; sister-in-law, Sandy R. Thompson; brothers-in-law, Rae Brown and wife Pat; Douglas Brown and wife Cathe; Harold Brown and Barbara; sister-in-law, Bonnie Brown.
Our family thanks God for angels like her two caregivers, Sheila Hall and her daughter Shania. Our mom was able to have decency and meaning in the remainder of her life at home. They took her in as their own family and treated her with kindness and dignity. The entire Hall family became part of our family.
