Charmian Williams, a resident of Western North Carolina since 1998, passed away on May 16 in Asheville. She was 93.
Known by “Charm” since childhood, she was born in DeKalb County, GA, on September 18, 1926, the daughter of Jeanne Nevius Martin and T. Marion Martin. Both her parents are deceased.
A graduate of the University of Georgia in Athens, Charm was a member of Alpha Gamma Delta Sorority. She was married to Robert Parks Charleston from 1947 until his death in 1955. They had one son, David Nevius Charleston.
In 1959, Charm married Roy Bennett Williams, who passed away in 1985. She moved to Franklin, NC in 1998. She was joined there by her son, David, who died in 2007.
In Franklin, Charm was active in the Circle of Light and Spiritual Light Center and embodied in countless ways the nickname she carried throughout her life. Much admired for her warmth and sense of humor, Charm will be missed by all who came to know her.
No service is planned. Those wishing to honor her memory are invited to donate to the Spiritual Light Center, 80 Heritage Hollow, Franklin, NC 28734.
