Charlotte S. “Char” Christensen


Charlotte S. “Char” Christensen, 89, passed away on November 29, 2017, in Johnson City, Tennessee following a brief hospitalization.
She is survived by her three children; Ann C. DeBaldo with her husband Joseph (Tampa, FL), Karen C. Taylor (Jonesborough, TN) and her daughter Amy Ann Dupree (Deltona, FL), and Robert C. Christensen with his wife Martha, (Jonesborough, TN); and her brother, Charles H. Swayne, Jr. (Cumby, TX).
The daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles H. Swayne, Char was born in Mount Vernon, N.Y. After marriage to Christian A. “Chris” Christensen, the couple moved to Stuart, Florida where they raised their three children. Subsequently, they lived on a small farm in Palm City, FL where Char loved to ride her horses Nelly and Jitterbug. Her husband Chris worked his magic in the garden while working as a real estate title examiner in Stuart. After Chris’ passing in 1984, she moved to Deland, FL and more recently to Jonesborough, TN to be close to Robert and Karen. Char loved the Storytelling Center and one of her favorite activities was feeding the wild birds that flocked to her lovely gardens.
Char was a loving wife, a devoted mother, and proud of her heritage as a descendant of a signer of the US Declaration of Independence, Arthur Middleton. Her departure has left an empty place in the hearts of all who knew and loved her. The family ask that in lieu of flowers, donations be sent to the Holston Home for Children, 404 Holston Dr, Greeneville, TN 37743.
