Ola C. Brown, 87

OWENSBORO, Ky. - Ola C. Brown, 87, passed away on Friday, March 29, 2013 in Owensboro.

Ola's faith was an integral part of her throughout her life. This led to her involvement in many activities of the church.

She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Douglas Brown; along with all of her brothers and sisters.

Surviving is her son; Larry Douglas Brown (Jean) of Orlando, her daughter, Lisa Gayle Gabbay (Michael) of Brooklyn; her two grandchildren, Eric Brown (Jessica) of Orlando and Kevin Brown of Fort Lauderdale; two great-grandchildren, Ansley and Everett Brown along with numerous nieces, nephews and friends.
