Mr. Clarence (Charles) Vereen died peacefully on Monday, Sept. 19, 2022 in Supply, NC at the age of 83. Despite health challenges, he lived an active and full life nearly until the end. Always ready to share a laugh or lend a helping hand,  Charles will be dearly missed by family and friends.

Charles was born on Jan. 14, 1939 in Supply. He was the youngest of 7 born to the late Mary and Samuel Vereen. Charles later moved to Davie County where he would meet and marry  Alice Doulin Vereen on July 26, 1969. They were married for 53 years.

As a young man (with good knees, as he would say), Charles worked as a longshoreman on the Chesapeake Bay Tunnel Bridge.  He retired from Tyson Foods after 19 years. In his later years, he attended Sunday Services at Greater Mount Moriah Missionary Baptist Church in Mocksville.

He leaves many to carry on his legacy, including: his wife Alice (Teddie); niece and caretaker, Sandra V. Massey of Supply; daughter, Michelle White of  Woodleaf; 4 grandchildren; several great-grandchildren; a special friend, Charlie Barker; a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

A funeral service was held in Supply on Saturday, Sept. 24,. A Memorial Service officiated by Greater Mount Moriah Missionary Baptist Church will be held on Saturday, Oct. 1 at 2 p.m. in the sanctuary of Union Chapel UM Church at 2030 US 601 N., Mocksville.
