The world is a darker place today but Heaven is much brighter with the passing of Jessie Mae "Daisy" Turner Brown who was called to light up the Heavens on January 21, 2010 at her home in Conroe, Texas. Mrs. Brown was born 23 March 1922 in Montgomery, Texas, the 5th of the 5 children born to Luther "Lue" Isaac and Sarah Lula Gregg Turner. She was the granddaughter of early Montgomery County pioneers, William Cecil and Emily Jane Hemphill Turner and Hiram John and La Vonia Carlisle Gregg. Mrs. Brown accepted Jesus as her savior in her early childhood and was of the Baptist faith.
Mrs. Brown received her education at the schools of Montgomery, Texas and later moved to Conroe, Texas where she met her husband, Martin Henry "M.H."

In 1946, Mr. Brown was transferred again with his job to Houston where they made their first home on Shepherd Drive and later on East 25th Street. In 1950, Mr. Brown was transferred to the Denver Harbor area where he worked at the Venus and Globe Theaters and lived on Zoe Street. Mrs. Brown worked in Houston for many years in the commercial catering business owning her own fleet of trucks. However, her love had always been in flowers. She became a student of Bess High Professional Flower Arrangement and later opened her own flower shop, The Golden Key, on Heights Boulevard in Houston, Texas where she furnished many beautiful funeral arrangements for Heights Funeral Home. Mr. and Mrs. Brown retired to the Conroe area in the 1970's where they made their home on Jefferson Chemical Road and later on Jeff Cote Road.
