BROWN
Jennie Georgina Brown (nee Monson), with Family by her side, passed away at the Chinook Regional Hospital
on Friday, March 21, 2014 at the age of 83 years. Jennie is survived by her son Cameron (Bruce), and
daughters Pamela (Bryan), Judy Guzzi (Duane) and Grandchildren, Marissa, and Nikolaos. She is survived by
sisters Joyce (Jack), Dolly, Norma, Mildred, brother Bud (Marilyn) and numerous nieces and nephews.
Jennie was predeceased by her Mother and Father, Alma and Oscar Monson, her son Dean Brown, and sisters
Blanche, Marion, Lena, and brother Donald. Jennie was born in Coaldale. She was raised and educated in
Turin Alberta. Jennie was employed by Hudson Bay Red Carpet for over 20 years and retired in 1992. Jennie
spent her retirement years traveling, camping, having coffee with her friends and family, shopping and
attending the jams on weekends. Help raising her grandchildren was the joy of her life. Don’t phone
Mondays or Fridays because wrestling was on and she was not going to talk to you. Moving into the Garden
View lodge was a highlight of her retirement. The new friends she met and the camaraderie that she felt
was wonderful in the last year of her life. Jennie was a wonderful grandmother, mother, sister, friend
and will be missed by all who knew and loved her. A Celebration of Life will be held at CORNERSTONE
FUNERAL HOME, 2800 Mayor Magrath Drive South, Lethbridge, AB on Thursday, March 27, 2014 at 1:00 PM. In
