Gladys Victoria Coswell Brown was born March 16, 1941 (celebrated April 23rd) to the late Jack and Mamie L. Mack Coswell. She was united in holy matrimony to the late George W. Brown and they were married for more than 25 years.

She accepted Jesus as her Savior early in life; in 1978 she joined Greater Trinity Church of God in Christ where she grew in her knowledge of Jesus Christ and served on the usher board for a number of years. Gladys returned to school in her 50s to become an LPN (License Practical Nurse). She loved caring for people and absolutely loved her job. She believed that when she cared for her patients she was an extension of God’s hands and heart. She shared His love to many in a number of Nursing Care Facilities in Little Rock, Arkansas until her health would not allow.

She leaves to cherish her memory: daughters, Flora Shelain Evans (Charles) of Conway Arkansas and Cecile B. Madden (Rick) of Conway, Arkansas; son, George A. Brown, Sr (Melissa) North Little Rock, Arkansas; sisters, the late Rosa Lee Thomas, North Little Rock; the late Catherine Myles, Little Rock, Arkansas; the late James Coswell, Conway, Arkansas; Sister in Law, Barbara Brandon (Clyde) Wrightsville, Arkansas; Jeweline Johnson, Los Angeles, California and Christine Evans (Edward) of Toad Suck, Arkansas; grandchildren: Alicia Cox (Dedric) of Conway, Arkansas, Clairrissa Collins (Larry Duran) of Garland, Texas, Charles Evans, Jr., Paul William, Drake Brown, George Brown, Jr., Bryunna Brown, Bryce Stapleton, Lauren Madden, and Noah Stapleton; great grandchildren: Lawrence, Lawson, Alexis, Alivia, Drew, Langston and Landon; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Clyde and Barbara Brown Brandon (brother-in-law and sister-in-law)
Gladys was a joy to be around; we spent many days remembering the old times and old ways. Her children were talented and compassionate. Her daughters were faithful unselfish caregivers; and a joy to know. We loved them.

Gladys V. Brown, my sister in law, was witty and a loving person. She worked in nursing homes and her patients loved her. She was caring and compassionate and treated each one as if they were her only patient. She went beyond the call of duty to make them comfortable and feel loved.
I miss our conversation about "old timed things" the way it used to be. I praise God for her life and her talented and faithful children.

"Gladys always told me she loved me. I would always say "I love you more." She would laugh and we would continue talking and she would say "talk later Jewel" I would say "later alligator. " She would laugh and say "love you Jewel " and we would hang up. Sweet memories of my sister Gladys

The memory that I treasure the most is when Ms. Gladys respected my relationship with God so much that she had Cecile to ask me to come and pray for her. She wasn’t feeling well at all and really wanted prayer. It was my honor and will always remember that she chose me to pray with her.

When Aunt Gladys moved to Little Rock
I felt like she was my big sister. She would listen to me as a teenager trying to navigate life. Mucho Love to my Aunt! I have many fond memories of she & Momma.

It is always a sad time to say goodbye to a bright and cheery face. I met Mrs. Brown some 40+ years ago and watched Cecile and George grow up with their grandparents, the Late Willie and Carol Brown at Pilgrim Valley Baptist church. Mrs Gladys was so supportive of her children's involvement in the church and a positive person to be around. Until we see each other again, you are now home to take your promised rest.
