by Lin Powell, Trust Director
Lillian Vesta Brown-Johnson (1914 – 2008) was a true Adventist southern belle. A third generation Seventh-day Adventist, Lillian gave a lifetime of dedicated service to her church’s mission of taking the gospel to all the world.
She valued her heritage: her family had a part in founding the Elam Road Seventh-day Adventist Church in Murfreesboro, TN, and she was proud of her family’s deep American roots traced back to the American Revolution. Her community knew her as a committed Adventist Christian who was active in charitable and historical civic organizations. She was an accomplished genealogist and author of four books.
A faithful Christian steward in life, Lillian was determined to be faithful to the Lord in death. With the assistance of our Trust Services Department, she prepared her estate with a well-planned distribution to family and friends and civic charities, as well as to her home church, media ministries, foreign missions, Adventist education and the ministries of the Kentucky-Tennessee Conference. Only in heaven will Lillian know the full extent of her support of the work of the Lord.
