Carol Brown Obituary

Charlotte Carol Hester Brown passed away on January 31, 2024, after period of declining health. She was 83 years old. Carol was born on February 12, 1940, in Willow Springs, North Carolina, to Hamilton and Willie Lee Hester.

Carol worked as a hairdresser in Broadway, at Mabel’s Beauty Shop, for over 50 years. She thought the world of Mabel McNeill, as she was like family. Carol was even on WRAL’s Tar Heel Traveler where they came to see Mabel’s Beauty Shop.

Carol enjoyed working with Sonny around the home. She loved flowers, shopping, traveling to the beach and dining out. She attended Antioch Baptist Church and was very active with her Sunday School Class. She was always dressed in colorful clothes as she loved to shop with cousin Allie Mae Pearce. She also made sure that Sonny was dressed appropriately also.

The family would like to especially thank Nancy Holder for the time she spent helping Carol.

Carol was preceded in death by her husband of 56 years, Thurman “Sonny” Brown. She is survived by two children: Hamilton Brown and wife, Samantha of Fuquay; Michael Brown and wife, Lisa Brown of Lillington; six grandchildren: Spencer Brown and wife, Sammi Brown, Shelby Brown, Stephen Brown, Callie Banholzer, Taylor Brown and Cody Brown; and great grandchild Haze Brown; and sister Doris Smith.
