Charlotte Light Hamby, Rockwood

Charlotte Light Hamby, age 83 of Rockwood, went home to be with the Lord on Saturday, April 3, 2021. She was born on February 3rd, 1938 in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. She was a member of the First Baptist Church in Rockwood and also participated in their Joy Fellowship group. As a child and young woman, she studied dance and loved to perform. Musicals were her favorite kind of movie and she was always humming a tune. She was not one to sit still, she was always on the go- ready for an adventure to another country, a bus trip with her dear friend Lillie or just up the road to Knoxville. She ventured to many foreign countries, but Switzerland was her all-time favorite. She loved going to the beach and there are lots of fond memories of family trips to the seashore. She loved to shop with her daughters and granddaughters and her good friend Molly. Gatlinburg was a favorite shopping destination for them. She was such a giving person; always looking to brighten someone else’s day with a treasure she had found.
