Charlotte Ann Thompson Brown

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. 


The funeral service for Mrs. Brown will be held at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, August 9, 2017 in Weaver Funeral Home Chapel with Rev. John Thrasher and Rev. Ronnie Brewer officiating. The committal service and interment will following in Eastern Heights Cemetery. Pallbearers will be family and friends. The family will receive friends from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. on Tuesday, August 8, 2017 at Weaver Funeral Home.

My heart has an empty space as the tears roll down my cheeks. As my mom always said when you cry you cry for your loss and not for the one you loved because they have gone to a joyful place filled with love and peace. So I cry because we will miss this gracious lady and I will smile for her now in heaven with the ones she was missing for so long.
May all our family find that peace.

Charlotte was a very special woman who graced the "Brown" family with her beauty, elegance, kindness and humility. She was always a pleasure to be around and will be sorely missed by those who loved her. She will live on in all of our hearts. Wuth our deepest sympathies to Cheryl-Ann, Chuck and your families. We love you all......

My dad passed away yesterday so I was looking for his obituary but saw this one. I so remember Charlotte from teaching my BEEP class in elementary school at Van Pelt. (I'm 46) She was a wonderful woman and teacher. I also remember Charlie when I was a small child because my grandmother who passed away at 94 in 2011 used to work the candy counter at Woolworths many years ago....fond memories. Sorry for your loss.

I was so priviledged to work with Charlotte in BVPS for several years. She was a kind and gracious lady and because of her, I became a better teacher throughout my career. She worked tirelessly for the children of Bristol, Virginia, and she cared deeply for them. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of her family and friends in this time of loss.
