Mrs. Amanda Leigh Overby Brown, 45, of Clemmons, died Thursday, April 1, 2020 at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem.

She was born April 9, 1974 in Guilford County.  Mrs. Brown was a woman of strong faith and prayer was first and foremost.  She could not have made it without her prayer warriors.  Mrs. Brown had been employed with Pacific Coast Feather Co. as a sales consultant.  She loved crafting and donated many of her projects to Cry Freedom Mission in Goldsboro and to battered women’s shelters. Mrs. Brown was a cancer survivor. She had an amazing smile, was an inspiration to those around her suffering aand was a “rock star.”  She will be Doug’s keeper of the stars, from that first date that ended with fireworks.

She was preceded in death by her father, Tommy Alan Overby.

Survivors: her mother, Frankie Brooks Norman McNally of the home; her husband, Douglas Arthur Brown; a son, A1C James N. Brown of Seymour Johnson AFB, Goldsboro; and a stepdaughter, Amber Michelle Brown of Winston-Salem.

A celebration of life will be conducted at a later date.

Memorials: Cry Freedom Mission, 3501 E. Ash St., Goldsboro, 27534.
