Gail Brown GAIL COLVIN BROWN, 83, passed away peacefully Feb. 27, 2023, with burial at King Cemetery. Gail was born Oct. 20, 1939 to Warren & Jodie Colvin in Aley, TX. She was the second to youngest of 12 children who have all preceded her in death. Gail married the late Cecil Brown in 1960 and two boys were born of this union, Jeff and Marty. She and Cecil worked and raised their two boys in Mesquite, TX. After raising her two boys, Gail spent time with her grandson Jeromie and granddaughter Chelsie. Gail worked eighteen years at AT&T then shortly after her retirement when her husband's health failed, she moved them "back to her roots" in Kemp, TX. Here she lovingly and loyally cared for him until his death. It is in Kemp that she spent the remainder of her life near family and friends. Gail quickly became reacquainted with old friends, in addition to making new ones. One could often find her out at local restaurants enjoying an evening meal with friends. Gail also loved sports of all types especially football and Nascar. She had an uncanny ability at picking winners, especially in college football.
