Marsha Diane Head Brown
Marsha Diane Head Brown, 64, of Seguin, Texas, passed away on Friday, Feb. 3, 2012.
Marsha was born on May 6, 1947, to Jesse B. and Dorothy A. Head in Crystal City. She attended and graduated from Robert E. Lee High School in San Antonio.
Marsha was wed to William G. “Bill” Brown on Aug. 15, 1966, and was a member of First Baptist Church. She served in Sunday school as a worker and member, worked in children’s church, and sang in the sanctuary choir.
She was a loving wife and mother, her family said. She enjoyed working in her yard, decorating her home, entertaining, and arts and crafts. Marsha had a gift of visualizing and creating, which was very gratifying to her and her family. She was a hard worker who seemed to be driven to finish her project only to start another.
Marsha had an innocence and child-like quality that she never lost.
She was stricken with type 1 diabetes at the age of 12, and dealt with the effects of the disease for the rest of her life. She fought a tireless battle with diet and a lot of exercise, but the diabetes was too destructive.
Preceding Marsha in death were her parents, and her husband’s parents, Glen and Janie Brown.
She is survived by her husband of 45 years; her son, Bradley Brown; her sisters, Gina Touchstone and Darlene Dornak; her brothers, Byron Head and Jesse J. Head; and several nieces and nephews.
Marsha will be missed by her family and many friends.
A celebration of Marsha’s life was held Tuesday, Feb. 7, at 11 a.m. in the First Baptist Church in Seguin with the Rev. Dr. Brice Mandaville officiating.
A reception followed in the First Baptist Church Fellowship Hall.
Memorial contributions may be made to First Baptist Church, 1314 E. Cedar, Seguin, TX 78155; or to the American Diabetes Association, 8610 N. New Braunfels, Suite 400, San Antonio, TX 78217.
