Glenna Darlene Brown Obituary
Brown, Glenna Darlene
1929 - 2018
Glenna Darlene Brown (December 9, 1929 – March 24, 2018) was the daughter of Oakley and Grace Newman, Enid, Oklahoma, preceded in death by her parents and two brothers, Richard O. and Howard E. of Tulsa. In 1951, Darlene married William Richard Brown and later became the mother of four daughters, Alison, Sharon, Carol, and Patricia. Darlene was a graduate of Phillips University, Enid, Oklahoma, majoring in psychology and mathematics. Later, in addition to homemaking, she served as a research assistant for her husband and was also a long-term retail manager. A faithful and active member of United Methodist and Disciples of Christ congregations, she was an Elder Emeritus in the East Mesa Disciples of Christ Church, located in Arizona, where she enjoyed a winter home. Darlene lived the truly abundant life, for she was gifted at 'making the ordinary into the special'; she enjoyed a sense of ultimate security that made the unacceptable into the acceptable, allowed her to walk on the water of life's uncertainties, and gave her the grace to be kind to others. She hated no one, nor had one enemy. In every role she undertook, her interactions with children, friends, and co-workers were reassuring and heartwarming. In short, Darlene embodied what theologian Paul Tillich called a "bearer" of the authentic walk with Jesus. Darlene enjoyed dancing, crafts, cookery, gardening, traveling, puzzles, and board games (in which she competed avidly and enjoyed winning). Preceded in death by one grandson, she is survived by her husband, her 4 daughters, 8 grandchildren, and 3 great-grandchildren. Hers was a life well-lived. A celebration of her life will be held 1:00pm Wednesday March 28, 2018 at the SCHOEDINGER WORTHINGTON CHAPEL 6699 N. High Street where friends may call 11:00am until the time of service at 1:00pm. Interment Resurrection Cemetery. Visit www.schoedinger.com to send online condolences to the family.
