Obituary for Celestine "Less" Brown

On May 18, 1932 a baby girl was born to the late Sam Brown, Sr., and Homer Brooks Brown in San Felipe, Texas. They named her Celestine (Less) Brown.

“Less” attended church of Christ in Sealy, Texas until she moved to Brookshire, Texas where she joined St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church under the leadership of Reverend Brooks.

At an early age “Less” built a house in Brookshire where she took her niece; Betty Jean Robinson in and raised her as her very own child.
“Less” was a second mother, grandmother to Betty and Vera Lee’s children.

“Less” was known in the neighborhood for her famous 7-UP cakes and potato salad.

“Less” and Betty went everywhere together, when you seen Betty you would see “Less”. When “Less” health started to fail and she wasn’t able to go anymore. Betty became “Less caregiver. For the last couple of years “Less” was bedridden; Betty’s daughter, ReRe stepped in and help Betty take care of “Less”.

“Less” is preceded in death by her parents, Sam and Homer Brooks Brown, Sr.; three sisters; Lottie Mae Gilbert, Verna Lee Garrett and Anna Mae Brooks; two brothers, Sam Brown, Jr. and Maceo “Jack” Brown.

“Less earned her wings on May 27, 2019. She leaves to cherish her precious memories; niece/daughter, Betty Jean Robinson, four grandchildren; Vincent Robinson, Jeffery Robinson, Cynetta Wilkins, Gewndolyn Bryd, (Kenneth) , 10 grandchildren and 12 great grand-children), one brother; Madison Brown (Joe), one bonus son; Kevin Branch, Sr., the Brown family, nieces, nephews and cousins. “Less” will truly be missed.
