I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Nita. What a long and wonderful life she lived. May her loved ones keep in mind that in the near future we will be able to enjoy everlasting life as God originally intended. “For the days of my people will be like the days of a tree, And the work of their hands my chosen ones will enjoy to the full.” - Isaiah 65:22

Juanita Simmons Browne, 94, died Monday, July 29, 2019 at St. Joseph’s Hospital.

The native and lifelong resident of Savannah was the daughter of Morton Simmons and Minnie Tyre Simmons.

Nita was a longtime member of the Savannah Golf Club where she enjoyed playing the game of golf. She was an avid bridge player and was instrumental in starting the Thrift Shop at St. Michael’s on Tybee Island. Nita enjoyed traveling, taking care of stray animals, and working in her garden. She was an author and published her memoirs titled “My Daddy’s Eyes Were Blue”.

In addition to her parents, Nita was predeceased by her husband, William Thomas Browne, and a sister, Eloise Simmons Marcus.

She is survived by her three children, William Thomas Browne, Jr., John M. “Toby” Browne (Francie), and Susan Browne Smith (Ronnie); twelve grandchildren, 19 great-grandchildren; several great–great-grandchildren.

The family would like to send a special thank you to her longtime caregiver and friend, Helen Colbert.

Visitation will be 5:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 31, 2019 at Fox & Weeks Funeral Directors, Islands Chapel.

In lieu of flowers, the family request that we each perform a random act of kindness in Juanita’s honor.
