October 5, 1943 - May 31, 2021
Vivian Capps Brown, 77, passed peacefully on May 31, 2021 surrounded by her family. Vivian was born in Conway, a daughter of the late Arthur William Capps and Evelyn Hendrick Capps. She grew up in the Brownway Community of Conway. Her childhood was spent in country stores around the community which her parents ran for many years. She graduated from Conway High School in 1961 and then went on to earn an LPN degree in Nursing and worked as a nurse at Conway Hospital for several years. Her family helped build Cedar Grove Baptist Church, and she grew up and attended church there for much of her life. Vivian shared a 40-year marriage with Charles Everette Brown. They made their living in various self-owned businesses including the Sea Hawk Motel and 501 Floor Covering in Myrtle Beach and also farming for many years. Vivian was perhaps most known for her cooking. She loved to cook and more importantly, she loved to share her cuisine with her friends and family. She could whip up a meal for 75 just as easily as she could for four. She spent many tireless hours preparing food for others, and whether it was in her home, at the motel, or food she took to people in the community, it was her way of showing her love for others. Vivian is survived by two children; Jo Nell Koch (Tim) of Myrtle Beach, and Charlie Brown of Conway: and two grandchildren, Abbey Brown and David Koch The family will receive friends on Wednesday, June 2, 2021 from 2 - 3 PM at Hillcrest Cemetery in Conway. Graveside services will be held at 3:00 PM Wednesday at Hillcrest Cemetery with Rev. Kirby Winstead officiating. The family would like to extend a special thank you to Queen Smith, Mrs. Vivian's caretaker, for her love, care, and support of Mrs. Vivian. They would also like to extend a special thank you to the staff, doctors, and nurses of Conway Medical Center for their quality of care during this most difficult. Memorials may be sent to The Shepherd's Table, P.O. Box 1782, Conway, SC 29528 or to Cedar Grove Baptist Church, 5025 Hwy 378, Conway, SC 29527.
