Eugene Brown Obituary


JERSEYVILLE – Eugene L. Brown, 88, passed away at 4:20 a.m., Sunday, December 10, 2023 at Bria of Godfrey.

He was born on March 21, 1935 in Advance, Missouri, one of eleven children born to the late Benjamin Franklin and Lina Carolina (Kato) Brown.

He married Beulah Vernal Duff on May 21, 1956 in New Madrid, Missouri, and for many years they resided in the Dow area, prior to moving to Jerseyville in 1998.

Eugene was employed with American Commercial Barge Line, where he worked for many years as a Machinist, prior to his retirement in 1986.

He loved spending time with his grandchildren, watching old western films and cartoons, especially Spongebob!

Devout in his faith, he loved his friend Jesus and enjoyed telling everyone about Jesus’s love and saving grace. He was a longtime member of the First United Methodist Church in Jerseyville, and his family finds comfort in knowing that he has been reunited in the Lord’s house with his beloved, Beulah.

Surviving are two children and their spouses, Jack and Catherine Brown of Leadwood, Missouri and Pam and David Anderson of Jerseyville; eight grandchildren, Stephanie, Kyle, Shawn, James, Sherry, Tracy, Kimberly and Daniel.

In addition to his parents and his wife, he was preceded in death by five brothers and five sisters.
