Karen and Brownell Johnston
Lifelong New Yorkers, Karen and Brownell moved to North Carolina in the summer of 2014. They built a home in Fearrington Village, where they both enjoy the wealth of community activities and a caring network of new friends and neighbors. They are delighted to be much closer to their daughters, one in Chapel Hill, and another in Richmond and to their four grandkids, who range in age from 9-21.
They enjoyed being members of University Presbyterian Church for more than five years, but missed the smaller close knit congregational experiences left behind when they moved south from eastern Long Island. Based on the warm welcome they have already received at Chapel in the Pines, despite COVID restrictions, they trust they have found the right church “family” as well as a place for service opportunities to Chatham County.
Karen and Brownell enjoy traveling, entertaining, movies and DPAC, playing social bridge, gardening and time with family.
