Mrs. Winifred Hamilton Brown was born Jan. 1, 1953, in Hillsborough County, Florida to late Nelson Hamilton and Carrie Hamilton. She departed this life on Tuesday, Nov. 2, 2021, at East Alabama Medical Center in Opelika.

Winifred accepted Christ at Pilgrim Baptist Church in Lanett, where she served with the Brown Bag Ministry. She dearly loved her church family.

Winifred was a dedicated, generous and cheerful caregiver to her grandchildren, great-grandson, nieces and nephews. She never considered anyone a stranger and would always give good advice to anyone. She loved planning big family gatherings, having cheerful phone conversations with her friends, being a good listener and giving Godly advice and encouragement. These conservations were spoken to all of her family members, as well. She also enjoyed performing family errands (shopping, groceries, and specialty shops).
