On Monday, November 7, Georgie Brown passed away peacefully with her husband of 68 years, Don Brown holding her hand. Everyone who knew her was touched by her compassion, her philanthropy and her lifelong service to others. Born in Stamford in 1925, she was the daughter of Scottish immigrants and a life long member of the Daughters of Scotia. She graduated from Stamford High School and advanced to Merrill Business School where she studied accounting. She was an accomplished bookkeeper, a talent she continued to refine throughout her life. Always the advocate for her children's education, Georgie was an active volunteer in the Darien school system. This dedication to education led her to initiating and installing the first library at Baker Elementary School. She spent many years serving as a Brownie, Girl Scout, and Cub Scout leader. She was heavily involved in fund raising for the first Press Box at Darien High School. In later years she became actively involved in the PEO, an organization with a primary focus on providing educational opportunities for female students worldwide. She was a member of the First Congregational Church for over 50 years serving in the Women's Association, as a Sunday School teacher and on numerous church boards. She and Don helped establish the existing Nursery School at the Church. She deeply cherished her lifelong church friendships. In addition to her husband, Don, Georgie is survived by her three children and their spouses, Nancy (Jay) Condon, Patricia (Peter) Kinnunen, Keith (Wendy) Brown. She was lovingly known as Granny to her eight grandchildren, Matt and Steve Condon, Rachel Kinnunen Crable, Amy Kinnunen Parke, Jeff Kinnunen, Jon, Lizzy, and Alex Brown, and 9 great grandchildren. The eternal optimist, her innate ability to learn music by ear, strong sense of rhythm on the dance floor and love of time spent with friends and family, made everyone she came in contact with grateful to have known her. With a quiet tone, contagious laugh and thoughtful stories, Georgie leaves us all with an understanding of the impact we can have on one another with a little more, love, patience and gratitude for the gifts life has to provide. She will be profoundly missed. A celebration of her life will be held on Monday, November 14, at 2:00 pm at The First Congregational Church in Darien, CT. Memorial donations may be made to: The First Congregational Church, 14 Brookside Rd. Darien, CT 06820 or American Macular Degeneration Foundation P. O. Box 515 North Hampton, MA 01061-0515
