On Monday, April 24, 2023, God in his omnipotent power called our beloved Diana (Clemetine) as she was affectionally called, from labor to rest. He saw the burdens became too hard to bear, she heard the Master’s call, and to this world she bid farewell.  Diana J. Brown was born on October 14, 1953 to the late Andrew and Gertrude Jones.

Diana attended Huntington High School in Newport News, Virginia. After receiving several certificates for her excellence.  Diana began to apply them where they would benefit her family. She held several jobs in the restaurant and customer service industrials throughout her working career.

Diana met the Lord on a personal level at the young age of seventeen, the same age she married Otis Brown Sr., while under the leadership of Pastor Dunmore at Progressive Church of Jesus in Hampton, VA. Diana being such a people’s person, her profession fit so real for the gift she had in her Christian journey. Sister Brown served under many wonderful leaders that influenced her life, which included, Elder Frank Mitchell, Bishop James C. Jackson, Elder William Savoy and many more wonderful people of God, until she went to be with the Lord. She was a member of Church of Jesus, under the leadership of Elder Clarence Johnson. She held many positions at various churches, which included Church Secretary, Sunday School teacher, Van Administrator, Missionary Vice-President, Youth Department, Missionary Choir, and cooking staff.  She loved to write and exemplify expressions. Studying the Bible was a commodity for her.
