Marilynn E. Brown
August 27, 2012

Marilynn E. Brown, 67, of Lincoln, died Monday at home. She was the wife of Robert C. Brown. Born in Mahattan NY, she came to Lincoln in 1956 and has lived in the same house her grandparents bought in the late 1800's when they immigrated from Ireland. She was a daughter of the late William and Mary (Sullivan) Downing.

Marilynn graduated from Central Falls High School and always said her higher education came from the "school of hard knocks." She was employed as a claims representative at Beacon Mutual Insurance Co. She previously worked at Ann & Hope Stores for many years.

Marilynn loved to visit Cape Cod and was always ready for any "adventure" that might come along. She especially loved taking cruises and visiting her cousins in Florida.

She is also survived by her sons, Scott Brown and his wife Maria, and Timothy Brown; grandchildren Scott, Alexander and Zachary Brown; her sister Beverly Brown; nephews William Brown, Kevin Brown, Christopher Barker and Michael Barker; and cousins Joyce Lamy of FL, Linda Myers of FL, Sandra Setera of Lincoln, Dennis Godfrey of CA and David Godfrey of ME.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Friday at 10:00 am in St. Jude Church, 301 Front St., Lincoln. Burial will be in Mt. Calvary Cemetery, Cumberland. Calling hours will be Thursday evening from 4-7 pm at Lincoln Funeral Home, 1501 Lonsdale Avenue, Lincoln.
