|PATRICIA LEE SEXTON BROWN
Patricia Lee Sexton Brown, of Charlestown, Indiana, died on Saturday, September 23, 2000 at the
Charlestown Medical Center, making her stay here on earth seventy-two years, ten months and six days at the
time of her passing. She was born November 17, 1927 to Dewey and Ila Sexton of Thornton, Kentucky.
As a teenager, Pat became a Christian. She was accepted as a member and was baptized into the Mayking
Old Regular Baptist Church at Mayking, Kentucky in 1966.
Pat married Lawrence Brown and later moved her membership to the Chester Hogg Memorial Old Regular
Baptist Church in Charlestown, Indiana where she was a faithful member at the time of her death.
She leaves to mourn her passing, her loving husband, Lawrence Brown, along with two sons: Steven Long of
Lake Worth, Florida and Larry Long of Springfield, Illinois; a daughter, MaDonna Blesette of Leitchfield,
Kentucky and two stepdaughters, Rena Vae Lindsey of Clarksville, Indiana and Linda Mae Bledsoe of
Charlestown, Indiana; her sister, Agnes Sexton Crawford of Frankfort, Kentucky and her brother, Owen Sexton
of Norton, Virginia, as well as fourteen grandchildren, fourteen great grandchildren and a host of relatives and
Patricia was a loving and faithful wife who dedicated herself to the Lord and her church. As a loving mother
her daily prayers were for her children that they might find peace on earth and one day be reunited as a family
in Heaven. Her concern was also for her dedicated husband, Lawrence, who faithfully cared for her during her
prolonged illness despite his own health problems.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Ila and Dewey Sexton and two of her brothers, Bennett Sexton of
Mayking, Kentucky and Buford Sexton of Orlando, Florida.
Pat will be remembered as in the scripture: 2 Timothy 4:6-8: “For I am now ready to be offered, and the time
of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:
Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give
me at that day. And not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.”
Through her faith in Christ she lived victorious over sin. She fought through physical infirmity to let her light
shine for her family and others. We can look forward to seeing her again when we enter our heavenly home.
