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.
