In 1st grade, her family moved to Jefferson City, MO. After 5th grade, the family moved to GA & OK before making their way to Kansas City where she graduated from Central High School. The Daniels children (Dewey, Nedra & Mary) were very close through the years & their friendships were always treasured by Margo. In 1947, Margo met Jack Brown at a dance at her church, Community Christian, in KCMO. After 3 dates, he asked her to be his "babe" & the rest is history. On September 10, 1949, they were married at the same church.
After living in Columbia, MO, where Jack completed his degree, the couple moved back to KC & started their family. Margo & Jack joined Overland Park Christian Church in 1956 where they remained active, life-long members and had many dear friendships. Their lives were built around their family & faith. Margo was a dedicated homemaker who worked tirelessly, cooking delicious meals & desserts; sewing & decorating the home with an artist's eye. She never took herself too seriously and loved to laugh. There were many family vacations, antiquing, camping & visiting historic sites. She was ever ready to listen & offer sought after advice & was always the peacemaker. She helped her grandchildren see how special they were, helping many of them through life's ups & downs. Her home with Jack was always a warm & loving place & all were welcome. She was easy to love & will be missed. Margaret was preceded in death by her parents, siblings & husband. She is survived by her children, Melinda Lee, Margaret Brown (Mark), Jill Bayne, Jack (Terri) Brown, Tom (Gina) Brown & Jennifer (Peter) Lee; her grandchildren, Brett, Danielle, Megan, Jacob, Aaron, Laurie, Caleb, Audrey, Katie, Miles, Luke, Judson, Annie, Ciara, Graham & Ian; and 14 great grandchildren.
A private family service will be held on Saturday, January 23rd at 1:00 pm at Overland Park Christian. The service will be live streamed on the church's website. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to Overland Park Christian Church or
