Mrs. Brown was born on August 1, 1945, in Arkadelphia, Arkansas. She was a homemaker and a member of Faith Baptist Church.

She loved the Lord and was faithful to her church. She could spend weeks camping on any lake, but her favorite camping spot was Lake Millwood. The most important part of her life was her family and the great memories she left behind for her family to cherish.
