Shirley Falcon Brown

September 22, 1929 — March 14, 2023

Shirley Falcon Brown passed away on March 14, at her residence in Frisco, Texas. She was 93 years old. Shirley was born to Sam and Melba Falcon on September 22, 1929, in Beaumont, Texas. She was married to the love of her life and high school sweetheart, Zack Brown, for 60 years. Shirley was a devoted Catholic and longtime member of St. Pius X Catholic Church.

Growing up in Beaumont, Shirley attended French Elementary and French High School. She graduated in 1946. After graduation, she worked for Sun Oil and attended Lamar College. Once she had her children, Shirley stayed home to raise them until they were in school, at which time she went back to college to finish her degree in education. She taught at French Elementary for 20 years. Her son, Kirk, followed in her footsteps and taught in the elementary schools.

In 2017, Shirley moved to Frisco, Texas to be close to her daughter. She lived in an independent living facility where she quickly made friends. To know Shirley, was to love her. She never met a stranger, and everyone she met loved her sweet, outgoing personality. Shirley always loved children, and children adored her, in turn. So many looked at Shirley as an adopted grandmother. She was so caring, and always loved hearing what the children of family and friends were up to and celebrated their accomplishments.

Shirley is preceded in death by her parents; her husband; her son, Kirk; her sister, Jackie Neff and brother, Harold “Dickie” Falcon. She is survived by her daughter, Lynne Brown; longtime family friend, Linda Ayers; nieces, Deborah Taylor and husband, Craig, Melissa Eurick, Kathleen Phillips and husband Ronnie; and numerous other nieces and nephews.
