Obituary for MARGARET EMMA BROWN

Margaret Emma Brown, daughter of the late David Barnes and Maggie Straiten, was born on July 30, 1916, in Calvert County, Maryland. On May 13, 2013, Margaret died peacefully at home at 96-years old. She was surrounded by her daughter, granddaughter and great-granddaughter. Margaret was united in holy matrimony to Bernard Brown and was married for over 60 years. Out of that union, two children, Mary Lucille and Calvin Brown were born. Margaret was committed to serving others. She worked as a substitute teacher, dietician for Brooks Head Start and a bus driver for seniors who served as companions to other senior citizens. Margaret enjoyed serving at Brooks United Methodist church, since joining early in her life. Margaret was a woman of many words, with the greatest of those being delivered in song. She was an amazing singer who was often compared to Mahalia Jackson. Margaret sung with several groups including the Utopians, Brooks Chorus and she also served as a member of the Brooks United Methodist Women as well as an usher. As a mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and great-great grandmother Margaret was the matriarch of our family, which includes six generations. She was particularly loving and supportive. She guided us through prayer and ensured that all of us knew that God is ever present and can do all things but fail. She leaves to cherish her memories, her daughter Lucille Stewart; grandchildren, Phyllis Terry and Charles Stewart of St. Leonard. Ronald (Lyvette) of Forestville, MD; Margaret 'Peggy' Brooks (Alonzo) of St. Leonard; Hilmur of Lusby, MD; David 'Ty' (Connie) of St. Leonard, MD; Tammy Taylor (Perry) of Bowie, MD; Michael of Crofton, MD and Marvin Stewart of St. Leonard, MD. Margaret also leaves 28 great-grandchildren, 26 great-great grandchildren and 1 great-great-great grandchild. She also leaves one sister-in-law Cornethia Cocolough, Washington, DC; and a God Child, Lincoln Washington. Preceding her in death were her parents David Barnes and Maggie Straiten; son, Calvin Brown; uncle, Wheeler Straiten and son-in-law Hilmur Stewart and great-grandson, John 'JJ' Thomas.
