Evelyn Brown, age 99, entered the presence of her Lord and Savior on Friday, April 19, 2019 at Crestwood Nursing Home in Hillsboro, Ohio.
She was born April 25, 1919 in Scott County, Kentucky, daughter of the late Nick and Joan (Clifton) McFarland.
Evelyn had two loves in her life; her faith and her family. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband Russell and is survived by their four children and spouses; Sandy Brown, Steve Brown (Melissa), Kita (John) Payne, and Patty (Donald) Ramsey. The blessing of 17 grandchildren, 29 great-grandchildren, and 6 great-great-grandchildren filled her life with joy. Attending church services and Bible Studies at Crestwood enhanced her love for God’s Word which today has become her reality.
