DeAnn Brown


January 10, 2019

DeAnn (Burk) Brown, of Shawnee, OK, died Dec. 27, 2018, at her home surrounded by family and friends at the age of 71. She was born in Shawnee, OK on Jan. 12, 1947, to Harry and Delores (Stout) Burk. She graduated from Shawnee High School in 1965.

In April 1973 she married Bill Brown Sr. at Stubblefield Chapel. They were married almost 27 years when she endured his passing with strength and grace.

She worked as a pharmacy tech since the mid 1980s. She started at Mission Hill Memorial Hospital, then moved to Unity Health Center, and landed at her beloved Eric's Pharmacy. At Eric's Pharmacy, she worked, officially, as a pharmacy tech and served, unofficially, as the social matriarch - "Mother Brown." Her other job (and greatest joy) was serving her children and being a devoted caretaker "MiMi" for her grandchildren. She was an avid lover of traveling and fanatical about Mickey Mouse, and she was thrilled beyond measure when she was able to combine the two - Disneyland!

She is survived by her sons, Bill Brown Jr., his wife, Nicole, of Edmond, Brent Brown and his wife, Stacie, of Shawnee, three grandchildren, Will Brown III (Edmond), Bella Brown (Edmond), Addison Brown (Shawnee), her sister Harriet Byers (Shawnee), her uncle and aunt Billy Herman and Billie Gene Stout (Oklahoma City), multiple cousins, nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews, great-great nieces and all of those who cherished her as a "surrogate" mother.

Services were held Jan. 5 at Walker Funeral Service Chapel in Shawnee. In lieu of flowers, the family requests a donation be made to "Make-a-Wish Foundation" in her memory.
