February 20, 1948 - October 27, 2019
Carolina Community – Brenda Jean “McCreary” Brown, 71, met her Lord and Savior on Sunday, October 27, 2019. She was born on February 20, 1948, in Prentiss County, Mississippi to the late Clarence and Evelyn McCreary. Brenda graduated from High School in Prentiss County. Losing her mother at a young age, Brenda was especially close to her older sister, Frances. She married the love of her life, Johnny Brown and together they were blessed with a daughter. Brenda worked at Renasant Bank and she retired after many years of serving the public. A woman who believed Christ should be the center of all things, all experiences, and all relationships, Brenda radiated love to anyone around her. She was a faithful member of Bigbee Baptist Church where she loved working with children and helping out in different Children’s Ministries opportunities. Her church family was her extended family and she enjoyed the sweet fellowship with them. She was protective of children and naturally took care of anyone who was in need. Brenda was devoted, loving and very compassionate and she got great enjoyment from watching her children. Southern gospel music was naturally her favorite type of music and she loved to worship God. Her joyful presence will be missed dearly by all that knew and loved her. Her family will cherish all the precious times they shared with her and they thank God for the gift of Brenda. Her family has peace knowing that just as she and her sister Frances were inseparable on this earth, they are together again starting a new life in Heaven. Brenda is survived by her loving husband, Johnny Brown, Carolina Community; daughter, Amy Robinson (David), Carolina Community; grandchildren, Mary Lace Stanphill (James); step-sisters, Carolyn Tigrett, Shelby Bonds; several nieces and nephews. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her sister, Frances Stevenson; step-mom, Inez Mcreary.
