Reva passed from this life on Tuesday morning, August 13, 2019 from the Overton County Health & Rehab. She was born in Clay County Tennessee, on September 15, 1933 to the late Lewis Thomas & Etress Fite Smith. Reva loved God and attending Church at Summer Shade Church of Christ. She married the love of her life, Charlie Truman Brown on May 27, 1952, and just celebrated their 67th wedding anniversary. Reva enjoyed cooking, especially on Sundays when her family would gather around her table after church. She also enjoyed making quilts, always having one prepared for the special moments in her family's lives. Gardening was another passion of hers. Truman and Reva worked tirelessly raising not one but two to three gardens. She believed nothing should go to waste and did enough canning and freezing to share with everyone.
Reva leaves behind her loving husband, Truman Brown of the Summer Shade Community; son, Donnie Brown of Livingston, TN; daughters, Vickie Brown Dodson & husband Randy of Livingston, TN, and Peggy Brown McCullom & husband Jeff of Hixson, TN; grandchildren, David Dodson of Mt. Juliet, TN, Amanda Dodson Masters & husband Chad of Rickman, TN, and Megan McCullom Grant & husband Jarred of Hixson, TN; great-grandchildren, Briley Masters, Rylan Masters, and Jaxon Grant; sisters, Oleta Collins of Livingston, TN, and Marie Sullivan of Cookeville, TN; special friend, Doug Reagan of the Summer Shade Community, and a host of family and friends.
In addition to her parents, Reva was preceded in death by her brother, Jerry Smith.
Pallbearers to serve are Jeff McCullom, Randy Dodson, David Dodson, Chad Masters, Doug Reagan, and Shannon Conner.
Vickie and family, my deepest sympathies on the passing of your beloved mother. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
