The world was blessed with Pansy C. Brown who was born in Bluefield West Virginia to James and Daisy Brown on June 13, 1931. Her sunset was on Friday, November 3, 2017 at Kobacker Hall Ohio Health Hospice.

Pansy Thurmond received Christ as her personal Savior and was a member of the Good Samaritan Baptist Church. She could often be found doing the work of an evangelist. She started the Non-Denominational Community Choir. Under her leadership, direction, and discipline the choir ministered at parks, recreation centers, nursing facilities, veterans hospitals.

Pansy had a special love for her pet monkey, buttons and her pot-belly pig, piggy. Pansy Thurmond was an avid bowler. She loved people and never met a stranger.

Pansy was comical, witty, a great speaker and motivator and passionate about everything she put her mind and hands to. She touched many lives and led many people to accept Christ as their personal Savior. Pansy was often involved in her community and loved young people. She played races and games with the children in the community one evening until 1 in the morning. Pansy enjoyed cooking and was one among the best; one of her specialties being her famous onion burgers, Yum!

Pansy is preceded in death by parents, James and Daisy Brown; husband, Chester Thurmond Sr.; sister, Georgia Washington; brother, Earl J. Harris; sons, Alamein Hunafa and Chester Thurmond, Jr.; and daughter, Gail L. Joshua

Pansy leaves to cherish her memories with children, Veronica (Johnny), Glenda D. Thurmond-Bouldin, Brenda J. Thurmond, Penny (Ousmame) Thurmond, Clinton (Brenda) Joshua, Kenneth (Wendy) Joshua, and Terry Lots; 22 grandchildren, 11 great grandchildren, a new addition coming soon, and a host of other family and friends.

Pansy will be greatly missed by all who loved and cherished her. Her legacy of love and encouragement will be passed on through generations to come.

  2. To the family of Pansy, you have my condolences in your loss. Our Heavenly Father promises that in the near future, that there will be no more sickness (Isaiah 33:24). Death is one of the most difficult situations we must face. However, Isaiah 25:8 assures us that “He will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces.” May you find comfort in God’s promises.
