Lonnie Mae Collins Brown was born January 3, 1948 in Savannah, GA to the late Lonnie Collins, Sr and the late Agnes Boyd.  She was called home to eternal rest on Thursday, November 11, 2021. 


Lonnie was a 1967 graduate of Sophronia Tompkins High School.  In the same year, she married her one and only true love, the late Lawrence Brown, Jr.  In 51 years of marriage, together they provided a loving, nurturing and Christian home for their family.  Lonnie was a powerful influence and laid a great foundation for her loved ones. 


She was employed at Chatham County Department of Family and Children Services for many years before joining the GA Dept of Labor where she retired after 25 years of service. 


Lonnie was an excellent cook.  She was known for her infamous pound cakes, her hot sauce collection and infinite amount of seasonings.  When she wasn’t baking, she enjoyed spending time with her family and close friends.  She was a selfless woman, always giving and caring for others. Lonnie’s generosity was unmatched.


She is a member of ConnecXion United Methodist Church.  Prior to that she was a member of Coastal Cathedral and Pentecostal Miracle Deliverance Center where she served as a Missionary for many years.
