Mother, Grammy, and loving friend Marcia Sheila Brown passed away peacefully on December 9, 2019 at the age of 86. She was born on July 6, 1933 in Louisville, Kentucky to the late Etta and Louis Segal.
Marcia's greatest joys came from the deep relationships she built with others. Her warmth defined her connections, and made her a fast friend to all. She nurtured many childhood friendships for over 70 years, while always finding room for new people she could take under her wing. Everyone Marcia met was touched by her deep and genuine love for others.
Above all, Marcia's love for her family was the centerpiece of her life. A dedicated wife to Alvin Brown for over 65 years, devoted mother to sons Dean and Jeffrey and daughters-in-law Katie and Susan, and adoring grandmother to Rachel, Michelle, Alison, Zachary, and Jordan, Marcia showered her family in abundant, pure love and loyalty. Whether a situation called for a pointed Yiddish saying or piece of sage advice, no one was better at caring for their family than Marcia.
Marcia will be deeply missed by her family and friends.
A private family memorial will be held at King David Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that memorial gifts may be made to the American Cancer Society.
