Mrs. Brown, a homemaker, passed away February 28, 2013. She was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother, and a friend to anyone she met. Everyone knew her as “Miss Johnnie”.
Mom loved life! She loved watching Wheel of Fortune with Dad. She loved chocolate, solitaire, reading books and working crossword puzzles. She always sent birthday & anniversary cards out to her family and never missed one! She loved the color red. Red birds, red roses, nail polish and lipstick. She always wore her hair long because that’s the way Dad liked it.
She loved “Mr. Bill”. They were married 62 years. Together they raised 6 children, 2 granddaughters and a couple of boys that came to spend the weekend, who ended up staying a few years! She loved animals, and passed that love on to her children. She always enjoyed life.
