Janett Marie Brown Nabors Obituary

New Haven, Conn - It is with profound sorrow that we announce the death of Ms. Janett Marie Brown Nabors formerly of Ruffin, NC, who passed away on Tuesday, November 28, 2023.

Janett was born on February 8, 1942, in Caswell County, North Carolina, to the late Alner Brown and the late Bessie Brown.

Janett took a leap of faith and moved to Connecticut to be closer to her brother, Willie L. Brown, Sr. Soon after her arrival, she met and married her former husband, William R. Nabors, Sr. God blessed their union with two sons: William R. Nabors, Jr., and Philip W. Nabors.

Janett worked at Yale University Medical Center for 35 + years and worked part-time at the Veterans Administration where she led many clinical studies as well as the American Heart Association. Janett also received an award from Yale for her work in the Program on Aging. She held many roles over her tenure, primarily as a programmer/research analyst.

Janett accepted the Lord as her Savior and was baptized at a very young age. Upon moving to Connecticut, she first attended Immanuel Baptist Church before becoming an active and longtime parishioner of Christian Tabernacle Baptist Church. Her faith was rooted in the Lord. She demonstrated her commitment to Him by serving as a member of the Mass Choir, actively participating in her We are One group, serving as the Budget committee secretary, attending Adult Sunday School, and passionately serving for many years as the audio/visual coordinator.

In addition to her parents, Janett was preceded in death by her sister, Dorothy Brown, and brother, Willie L. Brown, Sr.

Janett Marie Brown Nabors leaves behind to cherish her memory, to her sons, William R. Nabors, Jr. (Margo) of Hamden, CT, and Philip W. Nabors (Linda) of High Point, NC, her four grandchildren Jordan D. Nabors of Chattanooga, TN, William R. Nabors of Hamden, CT, Trevor J. Nabors of High Point, NC, and Lailah M. Nabors of Hamden, CT. Her two brothers James Brown (Margaret) of Sun City, FL and Edward Brown of Ruffin, NC, her long-time companion, Ezekiel Carr, and a host of nieces, nephews, family, and friends.
