I’m Nikki Anderson. My grandmother was Veronace Greenlee. She and Charlynn’s dad, Wendell, were siblings. We visited them very frequently. I can still picture their house right now. I loved hanging out with Charlynn and Norman. My grandmother absolutely loved it when Norman would play How Great Thou Art on the piano. We also visited Grandma and Grandpa Williamson. But of all the Williamson siblings, I spent the most time with Charlynn’s family. Also her dad and my grandmother shared the same birthday. So they always celebrated together.
I am so sorry about Charlynn’s passing. May God give you all strength and courage to carry on. God bless you all.

Whitney, this is the most challenging time of your life. People knew you as your Mom's Greatest gift and you will affect her memory with your life. A tall order, but you can do it! Take advantage of all the help you have and ask for what you need! Your mom was a great teacher and a shining light in this community. Do your best, one day at a time. Rita Simon

Sending prayers to her daughter and family. So sorry for your loss. Char was such a wonderful teacher. I appreciated her as my child’s teacher and told her so! She will be remembered by so many students and thankful parents.

Charlynn will be remembered by many people for her sweetness and kindness. I worked with her on many education committees as we were both teachers. I always enjoyed being around her due to her great humanity and friendship.
Her love for her daughter added great joy to her life, as I am sure Charlynn did for her daughter.
Charlynn’s life was one of true Christian service and faith.
May God bless her family with wonderful memories of a life of giving from a wonderful woman, mother, Teacher, and friend.

Whitney, I am so sorry that you have lost your mom. Char was a dear, sweet person, totally devoted to being your mom. She was also a Voland family friend, and had greeted me with "Hi Mel", since I met her back in 1973 when I moved to Brown County. She will be missed by so, so many in the county, young and old, who had their lives touched by her in some way. Please know that you are in my thoughts, and that your mom will always have a special place in my heart.
