Irene V. Brown slept away after a period of illness on Tuesday, March 27, 2018, at Integrace Bayleigh Chase. At the time of her passing, she was 92 years old. Irene was born on January 7, 1926, the daughter of the late Grace Harris and Harry Elliott Jr. Her early childhood religious training began at Asbury United Methodist Church and later she attended Mount Pisgah Holiness Church in Easton, Maryland.
She was a devoted mother and wife for 54 years. Irene married Paul W. Brown Sr. and a few years later their union was blessed with three children, Paul W. Brown Jr., Columbia, Maryland; Diane V. Brown - Caldwell of Centreville, Maryland; and Dr. Harriet A. Brown of Newark, Delaware. She was also a devoted mother, grandmother and great grandmother to her husband's daughter Joann M. Tilghman - Cannon of Easton, Maryland. A daughter-in law, Cynthia Gaines-Brown; six grandchildren: Curtis L. Turner, Tashunda L. Sye, Shayla Caldwell - Osman, Paul W. Brown III, Curtis E. Tilghman and Maurice E. Tilghman. One sister-in-law, Anna M. Terry of Royal Oak, Maryland and a loving God son Otis (lucky) Sampson of Easton, Maryland; along with a host of great grandchildren, relatives and friends.
Irene treasured her role and friendships with the late Judge William and Janice Atkins and family of Easton, Maryland and Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Fountain and family also of Easton, Maryland. and, in the final the years of her life, she developed new friendships with her Integrace Bayleigh Chase family.
On this day, we all feel her loss more deeply than words can express. We thank God for her loving kindness and compassion; and pray that she will be remembered in the hearts of her loved ones throughout their lives. The world had her for 92 years; May God keep her close to His heart for an eternity.
"If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; even there shall thy hand lead me."
The family would like to extend their sincere appreciation for all acts of kindness and comfort expressed during their time of bereavement. May God bless and keep each of you in His loving care.
