Brown, Ollie Faye (Morris) — 93, of Linwood, died on Sunday, May 10, 2020, at Shore Medical Center, Somers Point, NJ, after a long illness culminating with COVID-19. It was Mother’s Day. Faye was born at home on July 20, 1926, in rural Norway, SC. The woman who helped with the birth placed a knife under the bed to cut the pain. Her father, Elisha Morris, was the town’s depot master, and Faye and her six siblings learned Morse Code as children. They would go to the depot and watch the trains load with cotton. After graduation from the local high school, Faye attended Winthrop College for two years in Rock Hill, SC. Afterward she moved to Charleston to live with her older sister Jewell, where she worked as an admiral’s secretary at the naval base. Meanwhile she’d attend dances in Folly Beach, winning jitterbug contests. Faye liked to have a good time. Soon she met a young medical officer, Sterling Brown, recently returned from the Second World War’s Pacific Campaign, where he’d participated in seven beachfront invasions. She and Sterling were married in Norway in May of 1947. Afterward they moved to Northfield, NJ, and Sterling began working with Peter Marvel, MD. Sterling eventually established his own general practice, and delivered many babies in Atlantic County. He and Faye had two sons: F. Sterling, Jr. (Dawn) and David M. (Barbara). Faye was a great lover of life, with an exuberant personality. People said of her that she never met a stranger. She had an endless supply of stories and reminiscences, which she’d deliver in her perfectly-preserved southern drawl. She never lost her love for the South, particularly Charleston, and after Sterling’s death spent many winters there with sisters Jewel and Lucille. She was a longtime member of the Charity League of Atlantic County. Faye is survived by her younger brother Wandell “Moose” Morris and his wife Anne Scott, of Mt.Pleasant, SC. She was predeceased by her parents, Elisha and Ollie Morris, and siblings Alva, Lucille, Jewell, Nell and Stanaland. Her nephew Richard “Dick” Brennecke lived with the family from early childhood. Faye is also survived by her sons, their wives, and four grandchildren: Suzanna Vaino, Brianna Jamison, Brian Brown and Haley Onorevole. Also four great-grandchildren. It should be mentioned that she considered Genine Martin as one of her family. Funeral arrangements through Adams-Perfect Funeral Home in Northfield. Services will be private at Laurel Memorial Park, Egg Harbor Township.

Sorry to hear of the death of Mrs. Brown and my prayers are lifter for her family.I was born on Norway in 1943. My mother, Lois, was a school teacher and I’m sure she taught all the Morris children. I remember Mr. Morris well and the big house he lived in. I would go to the depot with my Dad to ship hogs on the train. I remember Dick Brennecke well and recognize the names of the Morris children, but can’t drag up a face to go with the names. Would love to hear from Wandell, as we would remember many of the same people. My cell is +18035338000. I moved from Norway to Seneca near Clemson when I retired several years ago. Kind regards, Jimmy Williams.
