Maggie Was born October 1, 1932 in East Texas in the community of Red Land, Tx. She was the third child and first daughter of Nelson Jones and Willie Nancy Ann Hill Jones. There was a total of nine siblings in the Jones family. As a child she attended Red Land School from first grade through twelfth grade. She attended Mt. Zion CME Methodist Church there in Red Land. Maggie played as guard on the school basketball team and went to the state championship on the track relay team. They worked on a farm growing just about everything they ate. Shortly after she married Willie Roy Brown in 1951, their first child, James was born, then Linda K. and Sharon. They moved to East Dallas where she worked as a maid then eventually to Texas Instruments as a single mom where she worked tirelessly to provide for her children. She retired after 29 years of service. She continued working as a school crossing guard until her kidneys started to fail.
Maggie confessed her faith in the LORD and was baptized by Bro. R. N. Hogan at the Figueroa Church of Christ in Los Angeles, CA. She later united with the Sunnyvale Church of Christ in Dallas and then in 2001 with the Central Pointe Church of Christ where she remained a faithful member until her health failed her. Maggie loved the LORD. She attended ALL the many senior activities at church and at a senior’s community center (including being spades champion for several years with her best friend, Sis. Adell Leonard-her partner in crime). Maggie loved going fishing.
Maggie was passionate in her Love for the LORD and family. She lived a long life and a life well lived. Her spirit and our memories of her will live on within the hearts and minds of all that were blessed to meet and know her. Maggie always had a loving and outgoing personality. She will be greatly missed but her bright and shining light will always beam eternally from heaven.
