Obituary of Lillie Alma Brown
Mrs. Lillie Alma Brown, daughter of the late Lelia Adkins Langhorne and George Langhorne was born June 8, 1929 in Cumberland County, Virginia.
At an early age she was converted, baptized and joined Rocky Mount Baptist Church where her membership remained. There she served on the Senior Choir Ministry, Prayer and Praise Ministry and the Pastors Aid Ministry.
On January 14, 1948 she was joined in wedlock to Eddie Douglas Brown. To this union five children were born.
Lillie was employed with Larry Dickerson's Cleaning business for many years. She was later employed in Richmond, Virginia doing domestic work.
Alma always had a smile on her face. She lived a quiet life, always willing to help anyone she could. She loved her family and her friends. She also loved the outdoors and especially planting flowers, but most of all she loved her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
She was preceded in death by her husband and three children, James, Ann and Leroy Brown.

A limb has fallen from the family tree,
I keep hearing a voice that says, "Grieve not for me"
Remember the best times, the laughter, the song,
The good life I lived while I was strong.
Continue my heritage, I'm counting on you.
Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through.
My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest.
Remembering all, how I truly was blessed.
Continue traditions, no matter how small.
Go on with your life, don't worry about falls
I'll miss you dearly, so keep up your chin
Until the day comes, we're together again.
