Read more about the life story of Mary and share your memory.
Ms. Mary Jenkins Brown was born October 5, 1922, in Richland, Georgia to the parentage of the late Walter Jenkins and Minnie Sapp Jenkins. She departed this earthly life on August 28, 2023, and continues living eternally with God.
Mary received her formal education in the Stewart County School System. She later married Lucius Brown Sr. in 1940. Mary was a Domestic Engineer for several years and retired in her early seventies.
Mary was a drum major for the “LORD”. She gave her life to Christ at an early age at St. Mark Baptist Church in Richland, Georgia. She later joined The Greater Cutliff Grove Baptist Church in Albany, Georgia.
Mary was a loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and a caring soul. She was a remarkable cook and enjoyed preparing meals for her family, especially during the holidays. She always made time for everyone and supported and loved her family. Some people only walk this earth for a short time, but Mary lived to be a hundred years old.
Mary leaves to cherish her memory; two daughters, Annette Grooms of Atlanta, Georgia, and Brenda Carter of Albany, Georgia; two sons, Henry Brown of Albany, Georgia, and Willie James (Jackie) Jones of Woodstock, Georgia; ninegrandchildren, twenty-two great-grandchildren, five great-great-grandchildren, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, extended family, and friends.
Mary was preceded in death by her husband, Lucius Brown Sr.; son, Lucius Brown Jr.; daughters, Minnie Mae Brown, and Rosa Lee Gardner; grandson, Jamieson Jones. Tavares Brown, a grandson, passed two days after Mary.
