Edna Belle Melissa Brown Atkins born on April 27, 1932 to William (Dorace) and Metrice Hart Brown, went home to her Lord and Savior October 22, 2020.

She loved doing her genealogy research, camping and fishing with her husband and all the brothers and sisters. What a time it was when they all gathered at Bear or Hurricane Lake.

She leaves behind to cherish her memory, two sons, Autis (Allen) and wife Jane, and Tim (Timmy) and wife Teresa; one grandson, Timothy and wife Tracy; one brother, Morgan Brown and wife Adela; two great-grandkids and numerous nieces and nephews.
