Mary Anne Brown

February 28, 1922 - October 7, 2017


Mary Brown February 28, 1922 – October 7, 2017 Mary (Mom) passed away October 7 smiling and peaceful with her family at her side. Predeceased by son Patrick and beloved husband Laurie, she will be forever loved and missed by her children Sheilagh (Don), Danny (Carroll) and Kelly, her grandchildren Choyal, Eric, Nicholas, Megan (Scott), Rachel and Laurie and great-grandchildren Madison, Kamien and Westley. Mom had a very full and happy 96 years Although she struggled with ALS these last few years, her cheerfulness and determination never failed. She shared her warmth, optimism and creativity with all those she came in contact with. For many years she (along with our Dad) was an enthusiastic member of the Ladner community, where she became the first curator of the Delta Museum and was a proactive member of the Kinsmen and K40. She was the instigator for many events, functions and celebrations for both community and family. Mom was an inspiration and made many friends. Mom moved on to work with seniors at Edmonds Senior Centre, then later in Surrey’s senior centre and again her planning and motivation made life a little bit more fun for all. Mom cared deeply about family and worked at keeping our relatives close. Often included in our extended family were many of our friends who found a temporary second home in our house. There was always plenty of music, dancing and laughter in our home. When the ALS began to accelerate, she was given wonderful, thoughtful and compassionate care by CoastalHealth nurses, home care staff and friends. We are so grateful for that. We especially want to thank Doctor Burns for his special attention to mom. There will be no funeral or memorial as requested by Mom. Should anyone wish, in lieu of flowers, please donate to an ALS charity.
