Majorie (Marge) Thomison, age 96, went to be with the Lord early Tuesday morning. She will be remembered for her great love of the Lord, love of life, family and friends, her golfing and her bridge playing.
She began her life in St. Paul, MN, where she graduated from high school and met Herbert Richard Brown on a blind date on a sleigh ride. They got married and she followed him to VA where he was in the Navy during WWII. They lived in VA, St. Paul, MN, So. Miami, FL, Vienna, VA, and Melbourne, FL, where Dick and Marge both worked at Patrick AFB and Cape Canaveral. They retired to a golf community in Winter Haven, FL, and summered in the NC mountains. They enjoyed travel, golf, square dancing, playing bridge and fellowship with their many friends.
Dick died after 61 years of marriage, and Marge invited Locke Thomison, a wonderful new love into her life. They were married and lived in Atlanta, GA.
She will be missed by her children, JoAnne Brown Milliken and husband John, Michael Brown and wife Valerie, and Rita Brown Adams (husband, Steve Adams (deceased)), Kathleen Thomison Kimsey and husband Ray, and Greer Thomison.
