The world became a better place on March 1, 1918, when Mother Priscilla Marable Brown was born. No one knew the impact she would have on the city on Murfreesboro, Rutherford County and surrounding counties.

Mother Brown began making sacrifices for her family at an early age, when she dropped out of school to care for her darling mother; then her journey began. She would continue to learn because she loved reading, which made her as smart as the average college graduate.

Mother Brown met and married the love of her life the great Reverend Frank Brown Jr., with this union God used both Reverend and Mother Brown to shape and mold so many people's lives. People would live with them, their cars would be filled to the brim, and it was nothing for them to feed the community and there would be no charge. Mother Brown had two beautiful children that have left their mark where ever they go, Reverend John Brown Sr., and Ernestine "Tene" Johnson.
Mother Brown retired at an early age and became a babysitter for the entire city and county. It was nothing for her to have Fifteen to twenty children at a time and again there would be no charge. There were days food was not brought by the parents, but the children ate and there were times the children would be left for several days, still at no charge.

The fruit of her labor has produced, computer technicians, commissioners, college professors, police officers, and much more. In 2001 Middle Tennessee State University recognized her as an Unsung Hero. The great thing about Mother Brown is her thankfulness. She knew she didn't do anything alone. She gave God all the glory.

Mother Brown leaves cherish precious memories daughter, Ernestine "Tene" Johnson; sons, Reverend John E. (Dorothy) Brown; brother; Willie (Frances) Marable; a host of grandchildren, great grandchildren, great-great grandchildren, and great-great great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
