The Obituary
LENORA BROWN departed this life Monday, April 25, 2005. She was born in Shelby, North Carolina on October 3, 1916, as the third of six children of Charlie and Pearl Graham Davis. Four of her siblings preceded her in death, Nealene, Charles, Walter and Vergus.
"Sis" as she was affectionately called by her five siblings, was a graduate of Cleveland County High School in Shelby. Much of her childhood was spent in Shelby as a devoted, loving member of her family, church and community.
As a young adult, she moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania where she met and married Horace Brown. From this union, two children were born, Charles Henry and Rogerline. Lenora and Horace also raised two godchildren, Veronica Eligan and Barry Bennett. Her husband Horace preceded her in death exactly twenty-two years ago on the same date, April 25, 1983.
As a child, she accepted Christ as her personal Savior and was baptized at her home church in Shelby. Lenora joined White Rock Baptist Church in 1959. She was an active member of the Helping Hand Circle and the Sheepfold Pairing of Moses and David. She worked for the Lord in a quiet and unassuming manner.
Lenora was a member of the 100 North 51st Street Block Club for many years. She was a well-respected, longtime resident who took great pride in her neighborhood. Family, neighbors and friends remember her as a warm and sweet lady with a big heart.
Lenora leaves to cherish loving memories: her son, Charles Brown; daughter, Rogerline Hunter; son-in-law, Leroy Hunter; three grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; one sister, Pearlene London of Shelby, North Carolina; three sisters-in-law; one brother-in-law; one godchild, Veronica Eligan; two god grandchildren; and a host of other relatives and friends.
Lovingly,
The Family
