Mary Ann Brown passed away in Augusta, Ga., at 3 a.m. Friday—her usual prayer time with the Lord. She was 73 years old.
A native of Houston, Brown graduated and received her doctorate in theology from the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. The founder and president of Mary Ann Brown ministries, she was a national and international conference speaker.
“Women of the Word is saddened at the loss of our beloved friend and a 'Mother in Israel,'” said Betsy Roy, national director of Women of the Word. “While we deeply miss her, we rejoice that she is now fully present with the Lord.”
According to Women of the Word, “The Lord has blessed [Brown] with the gifts of His Spirit and many have been saved, filled with the Holy Spirit, set free by His Word and brought into a closer relationship with Jesus.”
John A. Looper, executive director of Restoration Fellowship International, sent out a prayer request in July, saying Brown and her son were on their way to a center in Augusta where they would see medical doctors and “be ministered to by the affiliated church and healing center through their fasting and prayer ministry. She indeed needs a miracle from Jehovah-Rapha to curse the inoperable pancreatic cancer she is battling as well as to restore her health and strength.”
Brown is survived by three sons, one daughter, two brothers, seven grandchildren and one great-grandson.
Whole Life Ministries is hosting a special time Monday night for attendees to share memories of Brown. Funeral services and interment will be held at Laurel Land Funeral Home and Cemetery, 6000 South R. L. Thornton, Dallas, 75232. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to Whole Life Ministries “The Healing Center”, 2621 Washington Rd., Augusta, Ga., 30904.
