“Now I lay me down to sleep, kind friends pray, do not weep, Free from all worries and pain, I shall not wake in this world again. My dreams shall ever be sweet until the time we shall Meet.”
On Tuesday, December 28, 2022, God summoned Louise Gregg Brown lovingly called “Lou” to her heavenly home.
Louise was born in Florence County, S. C. on June 12, 1926, the daughter of the late Samuel and Ettaphine Hines Gregg, attended the Florence County public schools, joined the Greater St. Paul A. M. E. Church, where she was a faithful and active member until her illness and transition, met the “love of her life”, Thomas Brown and was married February 25, 1949.
Louise was employed at intervals outside of the home, but in the spirit of Ruth, most of her early married years were spent being a good wife, a companion and helper to her mother-in-law, and a sister to her extended family. However, throughout her entire life, Louise had a smile on her face, never raised her voice, never complained, and never seemed despondent. She always displayed a calmness, a caring and loving disposition. If you knew her, we are sure this was due to her close continuous walk with the Lord.
Left to mourn are a loving and caring niece Dollie Gregg Myers and nephews Alphonso Gregg and James Rogers Thompson both of Florence, S. C., a sister Ida Mae Gregg of West Virginia, sisters-in-law Catherine O’Neal Brown of Florence, S. C. and Victoria B. Paige of Dillon, S. C. and a host of nieces, nephews, and other relatives and friends.
Please keep the family of Louise G. Brown in your thoughts and prayers.
