Charlotte C. J. Carr

Teacher, churchwoman


Charlotte Corena Johnson Carr, a retired Baltimore schoolteacher who was an active churchwoman, died Sunday of heart failure at St. Agnes Hospital. She was 82.

A resident of Allendale Street in West Baltimore for 30 years, Mrs. Carr retired in 1980 from Gwynns Falls Elementary School, where she had taught since the early 1950s.


She began her teaching career during the 1930s in rural schools in her native North Carolina.

She was raised in Craven County, N.C., the daughter of a Disciples of Christ minister. She earned her bachelor's degree from Fayetteville State Teachers College in 1933 and a master's degree from Columbia University's Teachers College.

"She was a very dedicated teacher who told her students, 'You're going to learn in this class. You're definitely going to learn in this class.' She was so tough that she even failed her own nephew," said a niece, Gloria Johnson of Baltimore.

"She was popular with her students because she took the time to help them. She's the type of teacher that you remember," Ms. Johnson said.

She was active in the affairs of Mount Olivet Christian Disciples of Christ Church, where she has been a deaconess, a member of the senior choir and active in the Christian Women's Fellowship.

She was married in the early 1960s to Adolphus Greene, a longshoreman who died in 1965. In 1980, she married George Carr, who died in 1983.

Services were to be held today at St. John Church of Christ, Disciples of Christ, in her native Dover, N.C.

She is survived by her daughter, Sharon Greene of Greensboro, N.C.; a stepdaughter, Josephine Solomon of Kingston, N.C.; four grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.


Memorial contributions may be made to St. John Church of Christ, Disciples of Christ, Building Fund, Dover, N.C. 28526.
