Billie was born October 24, 1962 in Panola County to the late Marvin W. and Martha Jane Downs Brewer. She was an LPN and member of New Hope Church of God where she sang with the worship leaders. Billie was always taking care of others before herself. She was a very athletic person, and in her younger years, Billie enjoyed playing basketball and softball.
