Mar'Trae Michael Brown

Mar’Trae Michael Brown, age 16, passed away on Saturday, February 10, 2024, at Children’s Nebraska in Omaha, Nebraska. 

Mar’Trae was born on March 13, 2007, in Omaha, Nebraska, to parents Marcus Lamar Brown and Racine Tyannea Powell. Mar’Trae was special to so many people. Mar’Trae knew his mama’s voice and had a smile that lit up any room when she’d walk in. The sound of her voice was very important to Mar’Trae. It allowed him to know that she was there to visit him or care for him in some way. Mar’Trae was known as one of the “best dressed” kids at Ambassador Pediatrics. Mar’Trae loved to listen to music and cartoons. He enjoyed being taken on walks with the sun shining in his face. The community of family, friends and staff that was built over the years to care for his special needs was what helped to keep him in such good spirits. Mar’Trae was a joy to be around. 

Mar’Trae is survived by his parents, Marcus Lamar Brown, and Racine Tyannea Powell; his siblings: Mar'Quita Eiland, Marcus Lamar Brown Jr., Mar'Reasha Mi’Ri Brown, Mar'Laijah Brown, Mar'Air Brown and Ken’Asia Dynasty Smith; Paternal grandmother, Sharon Brown; Maternal grandparents: Christopher J. Powell I and Jacqueline L. Hall; and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. 

Mar’Trae is preceded in death by his paternal grandfather Clarence Burns, Sr.
