Joe Anne Brown Greer, 87, formerly of Duncan SC, passed from this life to the next Oct 23, 2017 at DaySpring Assisted Living in Hollywood SC.

Born October 16, 1930, in Enoree, SC; daughter of Reverend Joseph Emerson Brown and Vera Foy Brown, and the widow of the late James Francis Greer, USA (ret).

Longtime member of Duncan First Baptist Church, graduate of Furman University, she became a world traveler as an 'Army wife' with tours at Fort Benning, GA, Panama Canal Zone, Ulm and Goppingen Germany, France, Fort Leavenworth, KS, Annandale, VA, and back to Duncan, SC.

Upon returning to SC, she began a second career working in higher education in the Office of the Dean at Converse College, and the Registrar's Office at University of South Carolina Spartanburg.

Upon retirement from USCS, she again became a traveler when she and husband Jim hit the high seas as live-aboards on a 40 foot sailboat. After five years of travels through the southern states and Caribbean they decided that sometimes 40 feet was just not far enough away from each other and they became landlubbers again and returned to Duncan. For good.

Survivors include two sons, James Francis Greer, Jr. of the Philippines, and Jeffrey Emerson Greer, of Edisto Island SC, two grand-daughters, Alyson Elizabeth Greer and Rachel Anne Littlejohn, and two great-grand-daughters Clara Schimpff and Landon Littlejohn.

A private ceremony was held after cremation.

Memorials could be made to Duncan First Baptist Church, 103 East Main St, Duncan SC 29334, or to the . Revelations 21:4.
