Mrs. Ann Brown passed peacefully at her home surrounded by her loved ones. Ann loved the Lord, and loved her family fiercely. Nothing made her happier than being surrounded by her family and friends and cooking for them. She was married to her best friend and love of her life, Rayburn, for 59 years. She spent those 59 years pampering him and setting the perfect example of what a Godly wife and mother should be. She loved to spoil her family and close friends, who say all they had to do was mention a dessert or meal that they liked and it would just happen to appear at their house or be on the menu at her house within a day or two. She was known throughout her church family and community for her wonderful cooking talents, especially her homemade cakes, cookies and biscuits.
She enjoyed her time as a bus driver at Danville Schools for over 30 years, where she also spent several years as a substitute teacher and lunchroom worker and was affectionately known as Momma Brown to many of her students.
She was a lifetime member of Lebanon Baptist Church where she served on the Hostess Committee and she enjoyed providing meals for VBS and members of her church family. She enjoyed Southern Gospel Music and loved to go to a good old gospel singing!
In addition to her love for cooking, she also had many other talents which included gardening, painting and sewing. She spent countless hours and many late nights sitting at her sewing machine making clothes for her six children and herself, as well as sewing for others. Whether it was cooking, sewing, or crafting she enjoyed doing for others.
The family is so thankful for all of the prayers and outpouring of love that has been shown to Ann and Family during her illness. The family wishes to say a special Thank You to Dr. Benjamin Jones and all of the wonderful staff at Alabama Oncology at Grandview and to all of the doctors and nurses at Grandview Medical Center for the amazing care that they have provided and to her family doctor, Dr. Samuel Gillespie and his staff that went above and beyond anyone's expectations.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Lebanon Baptist Falkville Memorial Fund or to Living Faith Quartet.
