Funeral services for Mrs. Mary Lizzie Dorsey Brown of Smithville Georgia will be held on Thursday, August 31, 2017 at 11:00 A.M. at the Zion Hope Baptist Church with Minister Frankie Freeman officiating. Burial will follow at the Israel Cemetery.

Mrs. Mary Lizzie Dorsey Brown was born on January 28, 1933 to the parentage of Mr. Roosevelt Dorsey and Mrs Mabel Barlow Dorsey. Mrs. Mary was a person of beauty and charm. Her beauty was internal as well as external. She was a woman who took great pride in being a wife, mother and homemaker. Curtis Brown her husband, proceeded her in death. Mrs. Mary devoted many years of service to the textile industry through employment with Manhattan Shirt Factory. Retirement became imminent due to illness.

The joy of her life was her four children, six grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren. Two of her children preceded her in death, Nina Cooper (James), and Curtis Jerome Brown Junior. The children that remain are Mary Nell Way (James) and Sonja Vernita Pride (Ernest). The grandchildren are Karen Brown, Edmond Way, Cheryl Ward, Sondra Roundtree (Raliegh), James Cornelius Cooper, and Justin C.  Pride. The great grandchildren are Anthony M. Way, Alisha Way, Kolbie B. Cooper, Raleigh Roundtree, Jr. and Mason Ryan Roundtree.

The legacy that Mrs. Mary Brown leaves behind is one of unconditional love, patience, gentleness, meekness and an unrelenting capacity to show kindness. Though a woman of few words, she spoke volumes through her quiet and humble demeanor. There are many that remain to cherish her memory. Devoted friends include Mrs. Ethel Brown, Mrs. Jean Gibson and Mrs. Sandra Bradley. She will be greatly missed by her devoted cousin Mr. Thomas Gibson, who visited her daily. Mrs. Mary touched many lives during her 84 years. Her memory will forever be in our hearts.
