Obituary for Lucy Mildred Brown
Lucy “Mildred” Brown passed away on Tuesday, February 6, 2018 at the age of 97. Mildred was born in Tallapoosa County, Alabama and grew up in the Macon, Georgia area. She was the daughter of the late Luther Whaley and Martha Kimbrell Whaley.

Prior to their retirement in the early 70’s, they owned and operated three restaurants and a minit mart in the Eatonton area. After her retirement, Mildred dedicated her life to her favorite things, working in her yard, sharing her love of flowers with others and helping raise to her grandchild. Mildred was preceded in death by her husband of 44 years, H.S. “Red” Brown and her five siblings: Annie Bell Askew, Martha Thompson, Odessa Davis, Irine Kitchens and Luther Whaley Jr..
