Ms. Brown was born on June 12, 1923 and passed away on Thursday, June 25, 2015 in Coeur d’Alene, ID at the age of 92.

Ms. Brown graduated from Kellogg High School in 1941 and attended the University of Idaho where she earned a Bachelor’s degree in Food and Nutrition and a Master’s degree in Home Economics Education.  Her professional career included teaching Home Economics and Nutrition in hospitals and high schools in Idaho and Washington before joining the WSU faculty. She was a County Extension Agent in Chehalis, Washington until her retirement in 1990.

Ms. Brown is survived by her sister Joan M. Irons, and her four children, Mary Lynn (Brower) Bates, Elizabeth Jean (Brower) Moore, Dennis Eugene Brower, John William Brower, 10 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren.

A private family service and memorial will be held on July 23, 2015 in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to North Idaho Hospice.
