Obituary for BARBARA A. BROWN
Barbara Arista Joy Brown, 69, passed away peacefully answering the Lord's call to come home on January 3, 2011.
Born in Plum Point, Maryland on October 4, 1941, Barbara was the daughter of Bernard and Emma (Harrod) Brown. A graduate of W.S. Brooks High School, she continued her education at the Federal City College, Washington, D.C., studying sociology.
Barbara received the Lord as her personal Savior at an early age in St. Edmonds United Methodist Church. She dedicated her life to God and continued on a path of giving of herself.
For thirty-eight years, Barbara worked in numerous positions in the telecommunications industry, retiring in December 2002 from Verizon's accounting department in Silver Spring, Maryland. She was also a member of the Communications Workers of America and the Telephone Pioneers of America organizations.
Barbara's spirituality was demonstrated through her acts of compassion, kindness, thoughtfulness, charity and love given throughout her life. She was always doing something for her family, friends and others within her community. She never waited to be asked, but just quietly stepped in whenever or wherever there was a need.
Barbara's acts of kindness and sharing, truly demonstrated God's love. She was the consummate "caregiver and mother to all of us."
Barbara was preceded in death by her parents and four siblings.
Barbara is survived by her devoted daughter, Tiffany Emma Brown; sisters, Velma Mack and Roxy Brown; brothers, Dwight, Dean and Derrick Brown; uncle, George H. "Broome" Harrod; brother-in-law, Francis D. Mack; nieces, nephews and a host of other relatives and friends.
Barbara enriched our lives through her giving nature and love for all. There was no limit to her desire to give and serve. She graced the lives of those she encountered with joy, inspiration and love. Barbara greeted everyone with a smile in her voice. She saw the good in everyone.
