Linda Leanora Brown was born March 19, 1937 in Roehampton—St. James Jamaica to her loving parents Catherine Rhodes and Robert Crann.

Linda came to Ohio in 1968 and began her career in child care and housekeeping with a family in Shaker Heights, where she stayed for one year. She later was employed by Metro Health Hospitals for a number of  years, then later retired from Manor Care Nursing Home where she worked as a housekeeper.

Linda married her husband Reuchlin Brown on March 7, 1969.  They had two sons, William Grey (Paulette) and Terron E. Brown Sr.

Linda was a loving, caring, strong, happy, feisty, God fearing woman that was willing to do anything for anyone.

She will be truly missed by all who knew and loved her.
