Opal Lucille Brown, 104

Mrs. Brown, 104, died Thursday, Dec. 30, 2021, in the Baptist Home of Ozark.

She was raised in Seymour area and graduated in 1937 from Seymour High School.

Following graduation, she moved to Springfield, where she worked at several places, her favorite by far being the O’Reilly General Military Hospital.

She married Thomas E. Brown, and to this union, one child was born.

The couple had lived in Idaho for awhile.

After moving back to Seymour a couple of years later, she went to work in the office of the Seymour MFA. Later, she went to work in the office at the Kentwood Arms Hotel in Springfield.

She had a beautiful soprano voice and often shared solos with the congregation of the Baptist church where she was a member at the time, and she loved singing in the choir. She also played the piano beautifully by ear. In her retirement years, she had great fun playing in the church ukulele band.

Survivors include her daughter, Vicki Box; three grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; and two great-great-granchildren.

Funeral services were private and under the direction of the Craig-Hurtt Funeral Home of Seymour.
