Brown was a very active member in the Pleasant Home community for many years. She taught home economics and family living at Pleasant Home School from 1951 to 1986. Before and after her work at the school, she performed administrative tasks for Brown Farm and kept a beautiful yard, and large vegetable and flower gardens. She was an active member of several clubs and organizations including, Delta Kappa Gamma, Gardening Club, Home Demonstration Club and multiple farming community organizations.

Brown was a devout Christian. She was a faithful member of the First United Methodist Church of Andalusia for many years, where she sang alto, first soprano and second soprano in the church choir. Later in life, she became a member of Pleasant Home Baptist and Union Methodist churches.

Brown and her husband raised three children, and helped raise five grandchildren. They also had one great grandchild.

In addition to raising her children and taking an active role in the raising of her grandchildren, she also adopted and sponsored several foreign children in India and South America.

She is survived by her children, grandchildren, great-grandchild and two sisters, Frances “FiFi” McCellan of Tallahassee, Fla. and Mary Wanda Marshall of Birmingham.

In addition to her hard work, community involvement and dedication to her Lord and family, Brown will be remembered by all for her sweet spirit, generosity and friendship.

The family wishes to say a special thank you to Elizabeth Brown Piper and Mark Anthony Piper for taking care of our “Me Me” for over 10 years. It was not an easy job, but they did it with love, devotion, patience and kindness, for which the Brown family will be forever grateful.
