Regina Carolyn Brown

Regina (Jean) Carolyn Williams Brown, 94, of Tunkhannock passed away February 4, 2019. She was preceded in death by her husband of 63 years C. Donald Brown on December 7, 2006.


Born August 18, 1924 on the McCann/Arnold Farm near Elk Lake. She was the daughter to the late John R. and Lulu Lake Williams.

She spent her childhood on the Williams Farm, Phillips/Franks Road in Springville, PA. Jean was a 1942 graduate of Springville High School and faithfully attended the Springville Baptist Church. She made her home on Brown Hill Farms for 75 years.

She loved her church, WPEL, reading, puzzles, needlework, traveling, RFD, Judge Judy, Bill O'Reilly, Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune (always quick with the answers).


It was a Glorious Day for her to meet her Lord and Savior. She read through the Bible many times. She was a wife, mother and grandmother that was an example to all, but the Lord came First. In her last days she would praise God and would ask for prayer that the Lord would take her and that her family would follow her to Heaven.

Jean is survived by three sons, Dale and wife Sara, David and wife Elaine, Philip and wife Janet, all of Lemon Township; nine grandchildren, Dale and Jen Brown, JR, Daniel and Gail Brown, Jody and Mark Earl, Jon and Ashley Brown, Jeremy and Megan Brown, Scott and Michele Brown, Karen and Rob Harmer, Holly and Ed Overdyke, Ted Brown, and seventeen great-Grandchildren. Also a very dear brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Herbert and Leola Steele. Many nieces and nephews.

In addition to her husband she was preceded in death by sisters, Ruth, Eleanor, Marie and Helen; brothers, Paul, Roger, Ralph, and Russell.

The family would like to extend deep appreciation to Jaylisa Adams with At-Home Quality Care, Aseracare Hospice, the caretakers at the Meadows in Dallas, Doris Ward, and to Dr. Williams for all the care they have provided.


Family and friends are invited to attend Jean’s funeral service which will be held on Saturday February 9, 2019 at 12:00 p.m. from the Springville Baptist Church, Rt 29 Springville, PA 18844. Interment will follow at Sunnyside Cemetery, Tunkhannock. A viewing for family and friends will be held from 10:00 a.m. until the time of service on Saturday at the church.
