Those who had been given the opportunity to know her if asked about her would tell you she loved to sing.

The church rang with joyous songs of praises and thanksgiving for the late Mrs. Violet Mosse-Brown. She died leaving behind her four living children as well as grandchildren, great-grandchildren and other relatives and friends.
