Her Life's Story
Osie Brown was born September 17th, 1924 in Louisville, GA to the late Wallace Beasley and Fannie Berrian Beasley.
Osie was educated in the Georgia public school system. In her young adulthood she fell in love with and married the late Robert Brown. Together they relocated to New York City where they raised seven blessings from God.
Preceded her in death; daughter Tovah Levy (Barbara), sons Robert Wallace Brown, Jerrold Brown & Jerome Brown. Osie mastered the art of raising a family, which is not an easy feat. She was not just a mother to her offspring but also to nieces, nephews, grandchildren, neighborhood children, and anyone that would allow her to be in their life. Our friends spoke highly of her from their early childhood till this present day.
Osie was a devoted, loving wife and mother. She instilled countless moral values in us, one of the many words of wisdom she often said was "mind how you treat people." She didn't have much, but she would always find a few dollars to give to others in need and help in any way she could. She definitely knew how to stretch a dollar; I guess so with nine mouths to feed.
She enjoyed attending church and was a member of Gethsemane Baptist Church in Bronx, New York, Calvary Baptist Church in Detroit, Michigan, and Central Missionary Baptist Church in Summerville South Carolina where she was a member until she was called home. Osie enjoyed interior decorating and passed that flair on to her children. She also enjoyed her time at the Dorchester County senior center where she and her table buddy (sister Emily Atkins) shared good times together.
Osie was a great cook (oooooh that okra soup) with fried chicken wings, that was good eating!!! However, cooking wasn’t all that she was good at. She enjoyed using some of her time watching her favorite TV show Law and Order, doing word search puzzles, and coloring. She wasn't flashy, however, when she stepped out, she was definitely high fashion.
Osie was a wonderful example of a child of GOD, and "we" her children were truly blessed. We thank GOD for her and will miss her dearly; “well done mom, A+”. Osie leaves to cherish her memory; two daughters, Rosa Brown- Williams; Bronx, New York. Lula Dukes -Greene; Summerville, South Carolina and one son Samuel Brown; Bronx, New York. Eleven grandchildren, thirteen great-grandchildren, two great-great grandchildren, a host of nieces, nephews, and friends.
