Obituary of Mrs. Brown

Mrs. Zora Magdalene Brown, 82, of Paragould, died Sunday at Arkansas Methodist Hospital. Born in Alabama, she was retired and a member of East Side Baptist Church.

She is survived by two daughters, Joyce Dunavin of Lowell, Ind., and Lois Kucher of Davison, Mich.; one sister, Gretchen Harvey of Paragould; five grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.

Funeral services will be Thursday afternoon at 1 at Heath Funeral Home Colonial Chapel, with Dr. Charles F. DeVane and Rev. Dennis Scudder officiating. Burial will be at Linwood Cemetery.

Visitation will begin Thursday at noon at the funeral home.


Something left out of the original obituary, so I am adding it here:

She was preceded in death by her parents, Buddie Dean & Mary Catherine "Katie" (pinkerton) Miles; 1 sister, Edna "Iru" Barnhill; and 5 brothers, J. Nathan Miles, Nelson Miles, Kenneth Miles, T. Leon Miles, and Douglas Miles.


Here are some AKA's (also known as, or aliases)

She was mostly known as "Mrs. Magdalene Brown" through many of her years, but there were a few other names that she was known by... and following that some common misspellings of her name (She was strict about "Everyone should know how to spell Magdalene as it is from the bible")...
