Obituary

Elizabeth “Lise” Reid Brown, 87, a resident of Sulphur, LA for 63 years, passed peacefully to be with her Lord, in the comfort of her home on Saturday, March 7, 2020.

She was married to Ken for 56 years. Lise graduated from University of Kentucky with a B.S. in Medical Technology and operated the laboratory for Dr. John Thorkelson of Sulphur for 20 years. She has been an active member of Westminster Presbyterian Church since 1957 serving as an Elder, Sunday School teacher, choir member and on numerous committees. She also served on several Presbytery of Louisiana committees. She was a Cub Scout and Camp Fire Girls leader. Lise worked many years at Care Help as the “window dresser”. She was a charter member and President of the Board of Directors for the Brimstone Historical Society and spent many hours getting the museum ready for its’ opening in July of 1976. She served on the Calcasieu Committee for Habitat for Humanity and was involved in building 7 houses in the community. Lise was a member of the P.E.O. sisterhood. She and Ken were members of the Swinging Rebels square dance club for 20 years. Lise was a lifelong learner and with Ken, loved to travel and visit friends. Lise loved playing bridge, was a member of several bridge groups and had been playing for over 60 years up until her death.

Mrs. Elizabeth Brown is preceded in death by her husband Kenneth Jae Brown, siblings Thurston Reid (Suzanne), Jamie Reid (Lorraine), Martha Chinn (Arthur), and her grandson Cameron Schaub.

Elizabeth leaves her children to cherish her memory, Keith R. Brown (Cyndy) of Sulphur, Maureen E. Woodruff (Frank) of Richmond TX, and Laura J. Schaub (David) of Richmond, TX. Grandchildren are Tori Brown, Lauren Morris (Nicholas), Reid Woodruff (Kelly), Elizabeth “Libby” Woodruff, Christopher Venissat, Morgan Venissat (Tyler Cole), Adam Schaub, and Alex Schaub. Elizabeth also had eight great-grandchildren, Bella, Rhett, Heidi, Mae, Holly, Camilla, Gage and Isabella and numerous nieces and nephews.

It is with heavy hearts that we must postpone the celebration of life for Elizabeth (Lise) Brown which was scheduled for this Sunday, March 22. Governor Edwards has mandated that no public gatherings greater than 50 people may be held, and we will abide by this order. This decision was not made lightly but rather in the best interest and safety of those who would come to pay their respects. We ask that you pray for Lise’s family as well as our world during this time of crisis.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorial donations be made to the charity of your choice, or Lise’s favorite, Wounded Warrior Project, or her home church (WPC).

The Barbour family mourns the passing of a grand lady, Lise Brown. Although separated by distance and time, the Brown and Barbour families will be forever intertwined. Beginning around 1950, Lise and Ken were dear friends with my parents throughout their lives. The culmination was a joint vacation to Australia.
The Browns lived next door in Maplewood and I still have childhood memories of Lise square dancing, performing in the Conoco talent show, playing bridge and teaching vacation Bible school at the Presbyterian Church.
Lise uplifted and enriched the lives of everyone she met and will be missed.

I cherish my memories of Lise as she was my mom and dad’s next door neighbor. She would stroll over when she’d see us in the backyard. Her casual conversations would reveal intelligence, wit and a curiosity for learning new things. Once she was selected for Grand jury duty and enjoyed it. (Who does that). She would tell us what she could about it and we would find it so interesting.
Another time she asked me if I would make a presentation about my sculpting career for her petroleum ladies organization. She made it fun and easy and I enjoyed working with her. I take such pleasure in her memory. She had a brilliant mind and an exceptional soul.
We will miss you, Lise.

Lise was a dear friend to me. I have so enjoyed visiting with her in this last year since I have retired. She and your dad were such good friends to my mom and dad. I will miss her. Blessings to her and to your families. My condolences to you all.

Losing someone as special as Lise was is so very hard. I am so blessed to have gotten to know her and become such special friends with her for the past 16 + years! God placed her in my life at a perfect time and we just became so close. I'll miss our dinners together and the laughs and tears that we shared. May she be resting in God's loving arms. I love you Lise and miss you terribly! God bless the family.
