Mother Deloris Buckley Brown was born in Bogalusa to the proud parents of Roy and Helen Buckley. She was educated in the Louisiana elementary and secondary school system, where she excelled in academics. She was raised in a Christian home and attended Second Baptist Church, where she received significant spiritual instruction and training.

After being joined in holy matrimony to the late Elder Alton Ray Lee, she became a member of St. John’s Temple Church of God in Christ, under the leadership of the late Bishop John White, former General Board Member C.O.G.I.C.
