OK I just checked the Baltimore Sun for Mom’s death notice. It says this:
BROWN, Billie L. On October 21, 2012, Billie L.(nee Staten) Brown, beloved wife of Dennis H. Brown; loving mother of Tracy (Joseph) Holiday; devoted sister of Dallas (Linda) Staten and JoAnn Harlan. Billie rests at the HUBBARD FUNERAL HOME, INC., 4107 Wilkens Avenue, Baltimore, Maryland 21229 on Wednesday, October 24, 2012 from 4-6 PM. Funeral Services will be held following the visitation at 6 PM.
Well, yes, her maiden name was Staten, but I thought her legal name was Billie H. Brown – Billie Holladay Brown. I thought she’d dropped the L (for Levaire).
My name isn’t Tracy Holiday. It’s Tracie Holladay.
Well, done is done.
