Obituary for Frances Brown

Frances Brown
Frances Brown of Greeley moved peacefully to her better home on Saturday, February 25, 2017. Born October 9, 1920 in Cleveland, Georgia, the daughter of John and Florence Ledford,

Frances Emma came to Colorado with her family from Georgia at the age of ten during the Great Depression. The family farmed in Galeton and Kersey. She graduated from Galeton High School in 1938, and attended Colorado State Teachers College (now UNC). She put herself through school by working at the Marshall Cafeteria in Greeley. She married Bruce Brown, a teacher, May 16, 1941. While her husband served in the US Navy in WWII, she traveled extensively to be with Bruce as his ships came into port. She had many jobs on both the East and West coasts and was active in promoting the sale of war bonds.

Frances and Bruce became permanent residents in Greeley in 1952 and had three children. Frances was an active volunteer with First United Methodist Church, PTA, Girl Scouts, National Association of Parliamentarians, and Greeley Civic Center. She was secretary in the counseling office at Heath Junior High for over 20 years, and many will remember her friendly and gracious assistance to students and teachers alike.

Devoted to her family, she was an accomplished seamstress and excellent cook. She also enjoyed walks, music, reading the Bible and biographies, baking cookies for her grandchildren and hosting family gatherings. She was at home in nature and one of her favorite places was Rocky Mountain National Park. She was a woman who tirelessly and joyfully served the Lord, inspiring all who knew her with her humility, beauty, perseverance, twinkling wit, and grace.

She is survived by her children Alan Brown of Greeley, Susan Jordan (Dan), of Johnstown, and Betty Brown of Alexandria, Virginia, by eight grandchildren and eleven great-grandchildren, and by many loving nieces and nephews.

She is preceded in death by her parents, her husband Bruce Brown, and by all of her four brothers and five sisters.

Celebration of her life will be Friday, March 3 at 11:30 a.m. at First United Methodist Church, 917 10th Avenue, with lunch to follow the service. Memorial contributions in her name can be made to the United Methodist Church at the above address.
