Born in West Chester she was the daughter of the late Edward & Elva Brown and the stepdaughter of the late Edith Brown.

She grew up in Avondale and was a graduate of Avon Grove High School. When she moved to Parkesburg she was a dedicated housewife. In her later years, she was employed as a domestic worker and as a childcare worker for Curiosity Corner.

Aunt Joanne,you have been a great mother, great sister, great Aunt, great Cousin, and great Friend.  Aunt Joanne through your love and that wonderful lifeline for family, you have always shared the  best of who you are with all of us.  Gentlewoman, your tender heart, and devotion for family has been timeless and full of wisdom and trust.  Your love for others simplified your relationship with GOD. It is built on true forgiveness and loyalties.  A storage of wealth and wisdom with the boldness to battle on behalf of those you love and care for against all odds.  Aunt Joanne thank you for your smile, your thoughtfulness, and your unstoppable energy when it came to nurturing all of us.  Thank you for the love you have shown in all you do - until we meet again in the house of our Lord!  Your loving nephew - Merice (Reesie)!
