Brittney S. Champlin

Brittney S. Champlin of Gates died September 20, 2018. Brittney also known by family and friends as “Britt or Britt Brat” was born in Renton, Washington on June 14, 1991.

She was raised in Currituck County, but moved to Gates County with her father and her stepmother in 2007. Brittney was the oldest of four siblings and shared a very unbreakable bond with her fiancé or as she would say “hubby” Damien Dance and their four boys Jullian, Kavon, Damien Jr. and Leo.

Brittney and Damien moved into a beautiful home in Gates a few years ago, where they were raising their children. In this home Brittney expressed her love for decor, crafts and cooking. She also loved anything pink, glittery and girly. Her family was her number one priority, but she was always ready for a long interesting talk with friends.

Anyone that knew her knows that there was never a dull moment in her presence. She is known for her strength, smile, love, loyalty, spunkiness, reliability, her love for God, and being an amazing mother. Brittney loved so many things but what she loved the absolute most was being a mother and being Damien’s companion. She would always say she “loved her life as a mommy and wife.”

She is survived by her fiancé, Damien Dance; four sons, Jullian, Kavon, Damien Jr., and Leo; mother; Tricia Eskridge, stepmother Susan Champlin; two sisters, Kaylee and Kristyn Champlin; one brother, Jordyn Smith; grandmothers, Audrey Darrow; and, Denesa Cook; niece, Kaydince; and many aunts, uncles, cousins.

She was proceeded in death by her father Kevin Champlin; grandfather Todd Cook and grandfather Frederick Darrow.
