Louise Victoria Brown was born in Portland, Jamaica on April 12, 1947 to Joseph and Keziah Brown. She is the 3rd of 5 children (Keith, Youtan, Dorothy, Carlton) born to her parents.
Louise loved to read and her parents stressed the importance of education-a value passed down generations. She attended Tranquility Primary School, St. Martin’s High School in Kingston, and graduated with a degree in nursing from the University Hospital of West Indies.
She later met and married Dr. Thomas Alexander D’Anjou at the University Hospital of the West Indies. Together, they moved to New York City and had four children, Darion Kayode, Christopher Rayhan (1976-1977), Tamara-Louise Aziza, and Liana Alexis Dalila. As a family, they moved to Decatur GA, opened Suburban Medical Center, developed a love of board games, and played tennis. She was passionate about her work as a Registered Nurse at Emory Hospital and Dekalb Medical Center. In 1993, Louise joined Big Bethel AME Church, the church that stayed in her heart and where she felt most at home.
In 2002, Louise was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. With her fierce spirit and love of life, she triumphed “against all odds” as her oncologist’s longest patient until 2018. She was surrounded by her cherished children (Darion, Dafne, Liana, Tammi, Derrick), grandchildren (Cyan, Andrew, Sean), siblings (Carlton, Joyce, Youtan, Catherine, Dorothy), sister-cousins (Lorna, Marcia, Maureen, Karlene, Janet, Ruby), several nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends who will all miss her dearly.
