ATMORE – Ms. Marjorie Brown, 85, died Friday, Nov. 16, 2012, at her residence in Atmore after a courageous battle with Alzheimer’s and other complications. Her oldest son, Albert, was by her side.

She was born on March 10, 1927, in Frisco City. She moved to Atmore in the early 1940’s and worked several jobs in the local community.

Her longest employment was with The Bank of Atmore (United Bank) where she retired after 30 years. She was a faithful member of Liberty Baptist Church and became active in the choir, Sunday school, hospitality committee and was a member of the trustee board until her illness prevented her from attending. Marjorie loved the Lord and her church members.

She was a great loving mother, grandmother and devoted and loyal sister. She was a congenial, caring, giving, honest and faithful Christian. She let her light shine on earth until God was ready for her light to shine on with him forever. She was tired and weary in her physical body, but her spirit never wavered. She knew that she had mercy and grace with the Lord and her transition to eternity is complete.

Her parents, Elizabeth Washington, Neal Basin and sister, Annie Pearl Nettles preceded her in death.

Those left to cherish her memories are her sons, Albert (Willa King) Brown of Norfolk, Va. and Joe (Barbara) Brown of Mary Esther, Fla.; five grandchildren, Michael Brown of Chicago, Kevin (Patricia) James Brown of Houston and Marsha’ (Antuan) Morris of Fayettville, N.C.; six great grandchildren, expecting one in March; special nieces and nephew, Elizabeth (Lee Roy) Mobley and Dorothy Nettles, both of Atmore and John (Cynthia) Nettles of Mobile and a host of other relative and friends.

Viewing will be held from 3 until 6 p.m. at the Christian Memorial Funeral Home Chapel. Pallbearers and flower bearers will be family and friends.
