January 29, 1934 - November 8, 2020
Sue Brown, 86, passed away Sunday Evening at Premier Rehabilitation in Springfield, Missouri. Sue was born to Henry and Marcia Holbert on January 29, 1934 in Bolivar, Missouri. Tragically, Sue's mother passed away during childbirth and Sue was lovingly raised by her father and step-mother, Mary. Sue graduated high school in 1952. On June 11, 1957 she married the love of her life, Ray Brown. To this union two children were born, Leisa and Greg. The couple were together until his passing on November 16, 2017. When Sue was young she worked on the square as a soda jerk, serving soda and ice cream for all of her customers that came in. When she was older she worked in retail for a little while before finally working for nursing home in her later years. When Sue wasn't working she could be found painting or playing BINGO. She also went to the casino for some amusement as well. However, Sue really enjoyed genealogy. She spent hours working on connecting lineage and tracing back roots. Sue is survived by her daughter, Leisa Reif (John), her son, Greg Brown (Rhoda), three grandchildren, John Michael Brown, Joseph Ray Brown, and Chasity Miller, one great-granddaughter, Maddison Miller, several nieces, nephews, and caring friends. Sue is preceded in death by her husband, Ray, her parents, Henry and Marcia Holbert, and her step-mother, Mary Holbert. Sue was a loving mother and grandmother. We celebrate the wonderful life she lived and will always cherish the many happy memories we have with her. Visitation for Sue will be from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. Wednesday, November 11, 2020 at Butler Funeral Home. Graveside services will be at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, November 12, 2020 at Mt. Gilead Cemetery, Bolivar, Missouri.
