Annie Brown Obituary

On Wednesday, November, 08, 2023, the Lord took away all of your pain and Peacefully called you home.

Ms. Annie Mae Brown also known as “ Polly Ann” was born February 27, 1942 to the late Mae Lizzie Brown and the late Johnnie H. Pitts. Annie was raised by her Grandmother, the late Annie Mae Brown. The late Mr. Edward Gilliam was a Special friend of the family and took up a lot of time with Annie.

Annie attended public schools in Newberry, SC. She graduated from Gallman High, class of 1961. She enjoyed singing and dancing in her younger days, talking on the phone with her
friends and she made the BEST sweet potato pies. She LOVED her Family more than anything. She always planned Family Reunions because she had a BIG family and wanted Everyone to get to know their relatives. Her children teased her and called her the “Chappells Chronicle,” because she had a memory like no other. Often relatives or friends would say, “If you want to know the truth about something, you better call Polly”. Annie had a smile and laugh that would light up a room. Her favorite scripture was Psalm 100.

Annie's precious memories will forever be in the hearts of her four Loving children. Jocelyn Brown and Donna Turner (Victor) of Chappells, SC, Steven Brown (Yvonne) of Cross Hill, SC and
