Mary Lue Brown was born Saturday, December 15, 1934 in Alliance, Ohio to Elder Emanuel Harris and Rosa Gainous Harris. She was the seventh of eleven children and from the beginning Mary Lue heard and followed the beat of a different drummer.

She was raised in her Father’s church and attended both Steubenville and Winterville Public Schools. As an adult she lived in Steubenville, Leesburg, Florida, New York, New York, and Columbus, Ohio. Everywhere that Mary Lue went she was surrounded by family. And whereas Mary Lue, developed a love for creating art; painting, ceramics, and jewelry making, nothing ever surpassed her love of family. As we prepared for this celebration of her life, we were amazed to find hundreds of pictures in collages, her children, her grandchildren, her siblings, cousins, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and Mt. Zion. Every day she was surrounded by those things that meant the most to her, her family and friends.

Mary Lue was a strong and loyal friend; she loved to laugh; to dance (till the end); and perhaps most importantly she loved God.

Mary Lue is preceded in death by her daughter Vernice Thornton. She leaves to cherish; three sons, Michael Brown, James Brown, Richard Brown, and a host of grand and great grandchildren; three brothers, Elder James Harris, Bishop Emanuel Harris, and John T. Harris; four sisters, Louise Carter, Martha Ellis, Rosa Price and Beatrice Bridges.

Visitation 10:00am and Funeral 11:00am Friday, January 5, 2018 at Mt. Zion COGIC, 1466 Atcheson Street.
