Obituary

Funeral services for Regina Brown will be 12:00 pm Friday, May 6, 2022, at Apostolic Lighthouse in Nacogdoches with Bro. Brent Crosswhite officiating. Family and friends are welcome to the visitation service Friday from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm prior to the funeral. Interment will be conducted at Pine Grove Cemetery directly following funeral.  Regina Brown of Nacogdoches, Texas passed away April 27, 2022, in Shenandoah, Texas, at age 66. She was born to SGM Gene Milton Low and Frances Deloris Wilson Low in Fort Polk, Louisiana on February 22, 1956. Being the oldest of the four siblings, Regina held her family firmly together by providing love, support, and care for everyone. After earning her nursing degree in Tyler, Texas, Regina relocated to California to take care of her grandmother. While there she attended Christian Life College in Stockton, California, where she earned her degree in theology. She also furthered her nursing education by obtaining her master’s degree through the University of Phoenix. In 2005 she returned to Nacogdoches to take care of her mother and started her teaching career at Stephen F. Austin State University where she shaped the lives of many nursing students. She taught there for 16 years and retired in June 2021. Simultaneously she also served at Apostolic Lighthouse as the church secretary for many years until her health prevented her from continuing. 

She married the love of her life when she was 63 years young. In her words “Best Day Ever! I became wife to the love of my life, mother to my sweetest and bestest friends, and grandmother to the smartest grandson ever! God is so good!” Regina quickly became the glue that held the Brown family together in a way that we had never experienced before. One of Regina’s favorite things to do was to have everyone over for elaborate family gatherings where she could see others enjoy what she had prepared. She was faithful, compassionate, caring, giving, and most of all, she was love exemplified. Her love language was cooking for others. Regina went out of her way to make sure that the people who were often forgotten were included on special days by personally giving gifts to the single ladies and the widows in the church on Valentine's Day, Easter, and Mother’s Day. She enjoyed reading, listening to audiobooks, cooking for others, watching cooking videos, and figuring out mysteries. She was adventurous and enjoyed trying new things like parasailing on her honeymoon, going white water rafting down the Arkansas River, going on multiple mission trips to Honduras, trying to keep up with her two grandsons, and she was always up for sampling new food items. 

She was preceded in death by her parents Gene and Frances Low, and her brother Robert Alvie Low.

She is survived by her husband Robert Ray Brown Jr. of Nacogdoches, Texas; sons Robert Ray Brown III and wife Rachel of Douglass, Texas and Andrew Dean Brown and wife Candice of Lufkin, Texas; daughter Rebecca Lynn Brown of Nacogdoches, Texas; brother Pete Low and wife Robbie of Center, Texas; and sister Cassandra Ellis and husband Neuman of Nacogdoches, Texas. She also leaves behind to cherish her memory grandchildren Robert Ray Brown IV, Kenneth Dean Brown; nephews Joshua and wife Jessica Low, Matthew and wife Kristin Low, Trey Ellis, and Aron Corbett and wife Chrissy; nieces Katie Boles and husband Nolan, Sarah Ellis Boyd and husband Robert, Tina Benton and husband Jeff; and great-nieces Raegan Kaye Boyd, Sarah Benton, and Mattye Benton.
