Welcome Florence E. Browne Funeral Home

Let the Florence E. Browne Funeral Home family care for your family during this difficult season of bereavement. In business since 1912, our full service funeral home is well known for it's compassionate, professional & excellent service. Our staff is always available to assist you through the grieving process.


For many years Florence E. Browne has served many communities locally and abroad. Feel free to visit our Funeral Home located in the Village of Harlem, New York. Our Service Family would be more than happy to sit and answer your questions regarding funeral arrangements, cremations & pre-arrangements. In addition, we provide notary services as well as referrals for anyone desiring professional grief counseling.

 

Since 1912, The Florence E. Browne Funeral Home Family has been honored to serve your family with love, compassion and dignity. We have accomplished the vision of Florence E. Browne to enhance the community and strengthen the family during the most difficult seasons of their lives and we have accomplished it from our location at 436 Lenox Avenue! We have allowed “opulence” to pass us by in order to keep our prices affordable and, as so many of you have commented, maintained a “homey” atmosphere where you felt confident your loved one would receive personal, loving care. Florence E. Browne Funeral home has become the latest casualty of the gentrification that allegedly demonstrates a “new more progressive” Harlem. There are a lot of things I could say, HOWEVER, I will remain in the Spirit that has undergirded this funeral service ministry for 103 years … WE WLL CONTINUE TO PRAISE THE LORD!!!

With both sadness but Joy that the GOD we serve does ALL things well, effective Saturday, November 1, 2015 we will become one Funeral Home with two places that our family may continue to serve your family. Florence E. Browne Funeral Home, Inc will be located at 427 Ralph Avenue, Brooklyn, New York (sharing space with A. Barrett Funeral Service) at the corner of Ralph and Bergen Streets. This means that we can now better, more efficiently serve those who have called upon us living in the Brooklyn, Queens & Long Island communities. In the Harlem community, we have been welcomed with open arms to share a space with the NEW Springfield Missionary Baptist Church located at 1880 Park Avenue, New York, New York directly on the corner of 128th Street! This location is a matter of minutes away from where you have always depended on us to care for you and your family during those difficult moments. As we did in the past, we will also be able to serve you in the comfort of your home. AND, in addition to these locations,, services are still available in the most sought after and popular houses of worship in the ti-state area! We have not lost our contacts

So again, effective SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 2015 our location will change but our telephone number (212/283-5181), our fax (917/677-8224) and our email address ( febrowne@verizon.net) will ALL remain the same! You will have prompt attention from the same loving persons you have come to know and love!

Planning a Funeral

 

The funeral is an important step toward healing, not only for yourself, but for everyone who is affected by the loss of your loved one. There are a number of things to consider when putting someone’s final arrangements in place.

 
Which type of service will help you and your loved ones heal?

Having friends and family around you at a difficult time is the first step in the healing process. Whether you prefer a traditional funeral with a viewing or a contemporary service, we want to help you make the right decisions for you and the family and friends of your loved one.

At Times, people choose a fast service with little time for remembering a life lived. Having a funeral service with time to say goodbye and proper measures in place to ensure that your loved one is remembered now and in the future is important, not only for your healing, but for others as well.

Just imagine: Fifteen years from now, your loved one’s grandchildren will be able to get to know their grandfather thanks to our online memorial tribute pages. Click here to learn more.

 

Working Together

We know funerals and you know your loved one. Let’s work together to create a service that will pay a fitting tribute with the highest of standards. 

We’ll leave the details up to you. You can choose where, when and how to hold the service. You can choose the music you want played, the prayers that will be recited and the special services and personal touches that will help you honor a life well-lived. You make the decisions and leave the rest to us to make it happen.

Ivy Luretta Reid was born on February 16, 1915 to the late Naomi Wilson and the late Michael Ross in the beautiful country of Jamaica, West Indies.

Ivy came to the United States in the 1960’s. She worked as housekeeper for famous actresses upon her arrival. After a while Ivy made a career change to childcare in the form of a pre school teacher’s aide.

Ivy was a good cook. She always had a meal prepared on the stove. Some of her favorite dishes to make were Jamaican Curry Goat, Oxtail, Stew Chicken and any other Jamaican dish. Ivy also enjoyed singing. While in the nursing home she was a member of the Beth Abrahams spiritual choir.

When Ivy was well, she was an avid member of the Lowly Nazarene Church, located in the Bronx, New York, under the leadership of Pastor Willie E. Cooper. She was a member there for many years and she loved the Lord.

Ivy leaves behind nieces Marvene, Yvette, Peggy and nephew Patrick and their families as well as other nieces, nephews, grand and great grand nephews and nieces too numerous to name. .
