Mrs. Oma Jean Brown was the principal at Cushman Elementary during my first year of teaching. Her kind, patient, & sweet spirit calmed me down several times during that year. She was a wise educator who taught me much about being in the classroom. I will never forget her. Prayers for the family.

Loved your mom! Enjoyed working with her all those years at School. I heard many a story of your family and how much she loved ya’ll. I’m so proud I got to call her my dear friend. We always sent each other Christmas cards & she was always telling me to be good to Johnny. Lol ! I think she had a soft spot for him. So sorry I didn’t make it to funeral. I was there in spirit and she will be in my heart forever. Love to all of her family. ❤️
