Because He lives, I can face tomorrow…that’s not only the words to her favorite hymn, but those are the words she has lived by for 100 years. On Sunday, May 31, friends and family will help Martha Sue Brown celebrate 100 years of living, serving the Lord, and loving her community with a drive-thru birthday celebration.
She was born to William Issac and Maude Hannah Carter McReynolds on June 1, 1920 in the very house she lives in today on Washington Avenue in Pikeville, in the front bedroom. Martha Sue was the baby of the family with older siblings – William Carter McReynolds and Julia McReynolds Schoolfield.
