Deaconess Cora Brown will forever be in my heart. I remember her kindness as a new member of Mt Bethel. As a young mother she would often pick up my daughter and take her to Sunday school. She would also give me a needed break and keep my daughter for a few hours. She was truly a woman of God. Her presence has been missed when she moved away to WV. All of my memories of her were good as I remember her praying and worshipping. We will enjoy the Lord together when I get to heaven one day. My prayers are with the family.

I only knew Miss Cora for a small time at the Bonton, working the makeup counters together. Days with her were some of the best i have ever had. Good or bad days she could light up a room with her smile. Most customers we had always wanted Miss Cora to help them out, they all loved her so much. She was the face of Lancôme, no question about it. She will not be forgotten. My prayers to the family. I will always miss you Miss Cora.

I worked with Cora for several years at the BonTon. She was the queen of the Lancôme counter loved by her customers and store associates. She is with the angels now and I am sure making sure they are using Lancôme skin care. I will think of you often. Connie Robinson

I met Sis Cora while working at Bon Ton. We used to talk about spiritual things on our breaks and often invited each other to different functions at our churches, sometimes we ended up attending the same function that both of our churches participated in. Then there became time where my I was having trouble at my church and I felt it was time to find a new church home. I remembered her invitation and one day I visited the church. It was almost two years later. It turned out to be men’s day and I ended up fellowshipping with the church the whole day. I felt it was my new church home. I remember standing up for the first time and introducing myself and telling the church that Sis Cora invited me two years ago. Her response was, “that’s why you plant a seed you just stand back and watch it grow.” RIH Sis. Brown, you’ll be missed tremendously. My thoughts and prayers goes out to her family.
