Obituary of Charlene Kay Reynolds III

Please share a memory of Charlene to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Charlene Kay "C.K.” Reynolds III, aged 67, was called to her eternal rest on February 12, 2024. Born in Atlanta, Georgia, on Independence Day of 1956, Charlene's life was a beacon of hope and an embodiment of the divine virtues of humility and gratitude. A revered figure in the medical community, Charlene devoted her life to the betterment and healing of others. Charlene began her career at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and continued to share her knowledge and passion for healing as a professor at The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. She was a proud alumna of Emory University School of Medicine and Georgia Tech, where she laid the foundation for her life's work. Charlene's spirit is carried on by her beloved fiancé, best friend and life partner, Edwin Frank Chobot III, and her cherished children; Michael Shane Martin; Audrey Renee Rice and her spouse Dr. Alan Rice; Dr. Terence Sean Dunn II and his spouse Meredith “Hope” Evans Dunn; and Dr. Robert Edward Dunn and his spouse Meagan Grace Dunn. Her legacy continues to bloom through her treasured grandchildren; Anthony, Avery, and Abbie Rice; and Lottie, Stella Fern, Margot Mae, Teddy, and Betty Lou Dunn. Her life's journey is also honored by her brother, James David Reynolds and his spouse Pam Helms Tucker Reynolds; her sister, Mary Elizabeth Reynolds; and her adored nephews, nieces, and great-nieces and nephews. She was greeted in the Kingdom of Heaven by her father, Charles “C.K.” Knowles Reynolds Jr., and her mother, Lottie Mae Clark Reynolds, who preceded her in this journey to the afterlife. As a devout parishioner of The Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul, Charlene embraced her faith with profound respect for all creation. Her commitment as a member of the Third Order of Saint Dominic illustrated her deep connection to religious life and her unwavering devotion to God's path. The stewardship of Charlene's farewell is entrusted to Legacy Funeral Home, located at 8911 Dallas Hollow Road, Soddy-Daisy, Tennessee with viewing on Friday, February 16th from 3:00–4:30 PM.
