Sharon W. Brown

Memphis, TN

Sharon W. Brown of Memphis, TN died peacefully at home early Saturday morning, February 18th. Sharon was born November 20th, 1943 in Washington, D.C. to Jean and Robert Willoughby.

After moving to Memphis when she was 5, she attended Messick Elementary, Middle School and High School. At 18, Sharon started working at Bell South Telephone Company where, over the years, she worked her way up to Manager. She received many awards for her hard work and dedication to the company and retired in 1991, after 30 years of service. Finding that she wasn't quite ready for retirement, Sharon started a new career at the Memphis Area Association of Realtors in 1992. She worked there for 15 years and finally retired for good in 2007.

Sharon is survived by Leland Brown, her husband of 31 years. They were married February 14th, 1986. She is also survived by her brother and sister-in-law, Bob and Peggy Willoughby; her daughter, Jill Swift; her grandson and granddaughter-in-law, Andrew and Emily Swift; her granddaughter and grandson-in-law, Samantha Swift (her soul mate) and Rami Abulhusn; and by her beloved dog, Suzie Q.

Memorial services will be held on Saturday, March 18th, 2017 at St. Mark's United Methodist Church at 8255 Winchester 38125 in Memphis. Visitation starts at 11 am. Service at noon with a reception to follow.

Sharon loved her church, so in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. Mark's United Methodist Church.
