Mrs. Brown died Friday morning, according to a posting on the school's Facebook page.With great sadness I have to tell you that our sweet Mrs. Brown passed away this morning. As some may know, she had not been feeling well the last few months. She had been visiting with her doctors to see what was making her not feel well.
Our Lord, knowing her pain and suffering, decided to bring her home to Him and to stop her pain. What a great God He is, because she now is with Him rejoicing in His glory.
This morning, we contacted Carthage R9 Public School who graciously sent us three wonderful counselors to help us in telling our teachers and the students of Mrs. Brown’s passing.
Mrs. Brown began her teaching career at St. Ann's and returned five years ago after retiring from the Carthage R-9 School District where she worked for three years. She worked in the Joplin R-8 School District for 13 years, starting as a reading recovery teacher at Irving, Kelsey Norman and Cecil Floyd elementary schools. She later served as the district's literacy coordinator and was an instructional coach.
