JoAnn Brown Obituary


JoAnn Bennett Brown was born January 30, 1940 in Cane Creek, Arkansas to the late George and Leona Trotter Bennett.

She confessed a hope in Christ at an early age and attended Altheimer-Sherrill Training School in Sherrill, Arkansas. JoAnn married Thelmon Brown, Sr. and one son was born to this union.

JoAnn was a member of St. John Baptist Church where the Pastor was the late Reverend I.Y. Williams. February 6, 2005 she united with Rose Hill Missionary Baptist Church family under the leadership of the late Reverend Dr. G. L. Ford Jr. Immediately after joining the Rose Hill Church Family, Sister JoAnn served Faithfully with a delightful heart in many areas of the Church, whether attending or working: Church Sunday School, Mission, Kitchen and most definitely the Ushers' Ministry. She remained a loyal and faithful member until her transition.

Because she was so faithful, when our doors were closed to the pandemic, JoAnn attended Liberty Hill Baptist Church every Sunday for an entire year and a half. As a result, she received an Honorary Member's Certificate from Pastor Aaron Johnson.

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband-Thelmon Brown Sr., son-Thelmon Brown Jr. and brother-Samuel J. Bennett.

JoAnn leaves to cherish her loving memories one brother-Larry Copeland of Minnesota; two sisters-Sandra Fairbanks and Hazel Bennett Brower of Little Rock, AR, one aunt-Johnnie Branch of Star City, AR; one uncle-Robert James Trotter of Tarry, AR; A host of nieces, nephews, cousins, family, friends, and a special friend-Della Horace.
