Frances gave her life to the Lord at the age of twenty-five. She loved the Lord with her whole heart for over sixty years.

Frances was a mighty woman of God who evangelized, preached, and ran revivals at her church and various other churches.

Evangelist Brown had a passion for helping the elderly, the sick and the disabled in homes, hospitals, and nursing homes. She enjoyed playing the organ, reading the Bible, and singing hymns.
