Charline Hobbs Johnson, 94, passed away February 21, 2024 at NHC Healthcare-Sequatchie, Dunlap Tn.

She was born Charline Evella Heard to the late Creed Bates Heard and Lora Freiley Heard on June 4, 1929 in Dunlap, Tn.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her first husband of 38 years Carl Hobbs and her second husband of 11 years Clay Johnson, son Dale Hobbs, sisters Donnie Lee Jones, Evelyn Potter, Willma Johnson and Louise Sims and brother William Heard.

Survivors include daughter Carlene Henry (Sammy), grandchildren Janie Daniel (J.J.), Clint Hobbs and Sheri Whitmire (Anthony). Great grandchildren are Abigail Whitmire, Carly Hobbs, Ashley Hobbs, Jaydrian VanDyken (Michael) and Jerrick Daniel. Great-great grandchildren are Timber VanDyken and Tucker VanDyken.

As a child growing up in Dunlap in the 1930's and 40's, she was raised in a faithful Christian home. Her paternal grandfather, Judge James Houston Heard, serves as superintendent of the Methodist Sunday school for 25 years. Her maternal grandfather, Professor William V. Freiley, served as principal and superintendent of Sequatchie County schools. Also, around 1907 he was selected along with two other men as the first elders of the Dunlap church of Christ. Charline's strong Christian family led her to be a faithful Christian all her life.

Charline loved her family---not only her immediate family, but also her nieces, nephews and her church family. She was employed at Sequatchie General Hospital for over 20 years as a CNA and Ward Clerk.

The family wants to thank her caregivers for all their help and support these last few years---Mary Penley, Cathy Cunningham, niece Brenda Gaston, to the wonderful staff at NHC Sequatchie and Hospice of Chattanooga. A very special thanks goes to a special friend Stephanie Layne for many, many hours she spent with Charline.

Visitation will be held Saturday, Feb. 24 from 4 to 8 p.m. central time at Ewton Funeral Home & Cremation Center. Funeral service will be 4:30 p.m. central time at the Dunlap church of Christ, with one hour of visitation preceding the funeral at the church. Burial will follow in Sequatchie County Memorial Gardens.

Ewton Funeral Home & Cremation Center is in charge of arrangements for Ms. Charline Johnson and ask that you share your memories and condolences for her family on our website at www.ewtonfuneralhome.com
