Ms. Betty Brown passed away from this life on Monday, July 18, 2022, at Woodland Village Nursing Center in Diamondhead, MS. She was born on February 19, 1934 in Bogue Chitto, MS to Otis and Thelma Brown. Ms. Betty enjoyed life to the fullest. As a teenager, she was an all-star basketball player for Bogue Chitto High school. She traveled around the country in her fifth wheel but her heart and home was always in MS with her family. She had a laugh that was contagious and her smile would light up any room. All who love her will dearly miss her but we take comfort in knowing we will see her again soon.

Preceding her in death were her parents, Otis and Thelma Brown; her child, James Gregory Boling; and her brother, James Brown.
