Maxine Brown

November 7, 1936 ~ April 13, 2022 (age 85)


On November 11, 1936, Maxine Henry Brown was born to the parents of John Henry and Rachel Watkins.

She accepted Christ at an early age attending Smith Chapel Baptist Church. She was also a member of McCabe United Methodist Church and later joining Perry Clay C.M.E. Church. She loved serving the Lord and would often sing those old hymns songs.

Maxine was a loving mother and devoted grandmother and took great enjoyment during Christmas time shopping and picking out gifts for her grandchildren.

While her absence will weight heavily on those who had the privilege of knowing her presence, we can be certain that she is at her happiest now with her Lord in Heaven.

She was preceded in death by her parents, siblings Leo Sheffield, Joe Sheffield, Darlene Brown, Butch Wright Sr., daughters Sheryon Brown and Terry Tolbert.

Loving memories will be cherished by her loving daughters, Linda Brown and Becky King (Reginald); a host of grandchildren; her brother, Sammy Quinney along with numerous nieces, nephews, family and friends.
