Constance E Brown

November 27, 1958 ~ October 7, 2021 (age 62)



Constance’s Story

Constance Eunice Brown was born on November 27th, 1958 “Thanksgiving Day” in Cleveland, Ohio to the late Reverend Leonard Ray and Lucille Gross. She began serving the Lord at a young age in her father’s church Union Tabernacle Church of God in Christ.

Constance was fun, loyal, strong, fearless and always a joy to be around. God made her an artist, a teacher, an author/storyteller and an entrepreneur.

Constance married Randolph Brown on July 18th, 1981. Together they have three daughters – Carmen, Soteria and Gabrielle.

Constance dedicated her life to teaching her children and everyone she came in contact with the true gospel of Jesus Christ, as well as how to use the Word of God as our weapon to fight the enemy. She knew that she was the daughter of Yahweh and she taught everyone that it is important to know who you are in Jesus Christ!

Constance was and is so talented and had a true gift for creativity from the Lord. She published her first book, The Princess of Brigadeedoo, in 2020, which she wrote and illustrated. She worked with her daughters to bring to fruition one of her life-long dreams, the Sophia Learning Center, a school that focuses on teaching children the Word of God as well as rigorous academics. She also created her own company focused on spreading the word of Jesus Christ through apparel and gifts called Sophia’s Gifts. Sophia means wisdom in Greek and that is what God told her to use to teach others, via Proverbs.

Constance is also leader, teacher and mother not only to her three girls, but to a host of people. She spent her life mentoring young men and women and pouring the Word into people through Bible studies, in the schools and wherever she went. 

She is a sister to Gwen, Pat, Vonnie, Elaine and Linda of whom she loves with all of her heart.

Constance went home to be with her Abba Father on Thursday, October 7, 2021. She is loved and missed by family and friends and she leaves behind her husband, daughters, sisters, cousins, nieces, nephews and host of adopted sons and daughters from mentoring, working in the schools, working in childcare centers, church, Bible studies and so much more.

If she were here she would say, STILL, “How great is our God,” AND “They overcame him (the stupid enemy) by the blood of the Lamb (Jesus) and the Word of our testimony! – Revelation 12:11


Well done, Constance! We’ll pick up the torch from here.
