Miss Rose Marie Brown- (Myrtle Beach, South Carolina), was born May 28, 1958, in Effingham, South Carolina to the late Ezekiel Sr. and Queen Ester Eaddy Brown. She transitioned from her physical life to a new life on January 12, 2022. A student of life, in her early academic years, Rose struggled with stuttering and dyslexia. A determined student and leader among her peers, she overcame those challenging difficulties by becoming an avid reader and teaching herself how to turn those academic difficulties into learning strategies to her advantage. As a result, Rose was a 1976 graduate of the first graduating class of South Florence High School in Florence, South Carolina. After which, she attended and graduated from Florence General School of Nursing as a Licensed Practical Nurse. She continued her education at the Miami-Dade Community College graduating from the Transitional Nursing Program which led her to becoming a Registered Nurse. As she furthered her love of Nursing, she also became more inquisitive, which led to her to receiving her Bachelor of Science in Nursing. By that time, she had established herself as the “go to” for any medical questions among her family, friends, and colleagues. Researching science had now become a quest for Rose, which led her to earn a Master of Science in Nursing. Rose was a strong advocate for higher education! Rose was employed with The Enfimye Institute-School of Nursing, West Palm Beach, Florida until her demise. As a teacher of Nursing, Rose taught her students using the same learning strategies she taught herself, “Don’t study hard, study smart.” Rose was previously employed with Miller-Motte Technical College. To ensure that she would always be a contributor to Science and Nursing, Rose donated her organs to science for research so that she could continue to contribute to science in her own way. Rose’s love of Nursing was centered around patient care and teaching. Rose was quite busy in her professional career, researching Science and teaching her students how to become “Good Nurses,” but she ALWAYS made time for her family and friends. If she ever started a sentence with, “Girlfriend” or “Let me make you laugh,” you knew you were in for a 2-hour conversation. Rose’s personality, storytelling, wit, and love of people made her unforgettable! To know Rose was to know her other love, SWEETS! She was an adamant believer in desserts after a good meal. She believed in deserts so much that she became notorious as the family baker. She loved to eat and bake chocolate cakes, carrot cakes, pound cakes and raisin cakes. She often stated, “My cakes are better than Betty Crocker.” Rose lived a fruitful life in Miami, Florida, over two decades, but returned home to be with her family. In the absence of biological children, Rose made her nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, and great-great nephews her children, loving them unconditionally and without limits. Her “children” could always go to “Auntie” and/or Aunt Rose and receive a “Yes” without hesitation. At an early age, Rose accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior. She joined the Greater Saint Paul African Methodist Episcopal Church in Claussen, South Carolina. Although Rose did not regularly attend Church, she was a cheerful giver and donated to multiple charities in the United States and abroad. The scripture in which she lived her life by was James 2:26, “For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead.” In addition to her parents, Rose was preceded in death by a sister, Maelean Brown Myers; two brothers, Joel Kendrick Brown, and Ezekiel Brown Jr.; two nephews, Anthony Gregory Durant and Booker Timothy Durant, III; and one great-niece, Zaria Alexandria James. Left to cherish her memories are her siblings: Margie B. Durant (of the home), Diann B. Brown (Florence, SC) Mack E. Brown (Effingham, SC), Sara Brown Collins (Effingham, SC), Reverend Davie (Lisa) Brown (Florence, SC), Cynthia A. Brown (Effingham, SC), Joseph P. Brown (Effingham, SC), Michael C. Brown (Effingham, SC) and Faith T. Brown (Florence, SC). One sister-in-law, Verneda D. Brown (Florence, SC); two aunts: Mary Brown (Timmonsville, SC) and Betty Eaddy (Effingham, SC); one uncle, Joe Mouzon (Fayetteville, NC), and a host of other relatives, colleagues, students and friends. The family of Miss Rose Marie Brown will remember her in their own way. However, we thank each of you for the outpouring of love and all acts of kindness during this difficult time of bereavement. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that a donation be made in her name, to the American Heart or Lung Association. Arrangements are being handled by Kistler-Hardee Funeral Home and Crematory of Darlington, SC.
