August 20, 2021

CHARLOTTE – Townley Spratt Moon, 76, of Charlotte, NC, passed away in her home on Friday, August 20, 2021, from complications related to bile duct cancer. She was surrounded by family. 

Townley is survived by her brother, Julian Spratt and his wife, Karen; her daughter, Chase Chichester and her husband, John, and daughters, Liza and Molly; and her son, Travis Moon and his wife, Lauren and son, Tommy.

She was preceded into death by her father, Charles Augustus Spratt; mother, Choice Chase Spratt; and brother, Charles Augustus Spratt, Jr.

Townley was born in 1945, and spent most of her life in Charlotte. She graduated from Myers Park High School in 1963 before attending college at UNC-Greensboro. Townley received her Masters Degree in Health Promotion from UNC-Charlotte. 

Her career included roles in management and leadership at the Mecklenburg Council on Adolescent Pregnancy, The Duke Mansion, and Flynn Heath Associates. 

Townley was an avid gardener, known for her tomatoes, green beans, zipper peas, and flowers. She was an active member of Selwyn Presbyterian Church for many years, and was a contributor of time and resources to organizations such as Crisis Assistance Ministries, Dress for Success, and the Montclair Elementary School. 

Townley was a friend to all people she met, quick to laugh and smile, and an endless source of kindness and joy.  She loved spending time with her beloved supper club and her friends, and enjoyed traveling around the world and visiting the beach. 

The family would like to thank Novant Health Hospice for the special care she received over the last few months and her kind caregivers who attended to her nightly over the last two weeks.

    Chase and Travis, Rick and I, along with Cowden, were so sad not to be there for Townley's service. Cowden's wife Ellen was due to deliver their second baby any time and we knew we would have to isolate after being in a group of people. We would definitely have been there but were with you via Zoom. I thought the service was beautiful and so, so personal. Your mother was a good friend to so many, many people and was truly a ray of sunshine. She will be missed. I know how proud she was of you two and your families.
    All the best to both of you,
