Jeanette E. Brown was born July 15, 1936 in Savannah, Georgia to the late Abraham and Mary Bennett. She was educated in the public schools of Savannah-Chatham County.

Jeanette also served on the Missionary Board and was a New Members class Teacher. She was a member of the Baptist Training Union and a member of the Deacon's wife's association. She was ordained as Deacon under the leadership of Pastor Leroy Kirkland. She was a faithful attendee of Bible Study and Sunday School. Affectionately called Mother Brown at First Mount Bethel, she served as one of the Mothers of the church until her illness prevented it.
