Maryleen Brown was born on July 25, 1937 in Bostwick, Georgia to Rosebud (Bell) Brown and Abron Brown.  She was the eldest sister of 12 children. Mary was a member of Southeast Seventh Day Adventist Church where she worshipped.

One of her favorite activities was to grocery shop, as she searched for her favorite things. She read the newspaper everyday to keep up with current events. Mary loved to work on crossword puzzles and enjoyed long conversations. She created special relationships throughout her family, sharing stories and family history.

God called Mary to be in peace on May 5, 2022.
