Like Jesus, “the firstborn from the dead” (ESV, Colossians 1:18), Wanda Brown has been resurrected from her “borrowed tomb” to live forevermore.
She was born December 8, 1937, in the now-extinct town of Martwick, Muhlenberg County, KY, to Pascal Devar and Rachel (Duncan) Ezell.
A 1955 graduate of Drakesboro High School, she was a homemaker. Until poor health took its toll, she attended Rockport Christian Fellowship Church. She was a faithful and active member of the Ohio County Hospital Auxiliary for more than twenty-five years.
Wanda was preceded in death by her sister, Elizabeth Jean Ingram in 2008.
Survivors include her husband of sixty-one years, Earl Ray Brown; her son Kelly Earl Brown, both of Rockport, KY; her daughter Lugenia Rae Brown (Mike) Sapp of Hartford, KY; grandchildren Aaron (Erica) Brown, Travis (Caitlin) Brown, Lee Sapp and Katie (Junior) Staggs; 3 great grandchildren; her sister Anna Louise Milligan of Central City, KY.
