BROWN, Sarah Adell (Sally)
Our sweet mother and grandmother, Sarah Adell Brown (Sally), passed away at her home in the arms of loved ones, Friday, March 29, 2013 in Olds, Alberta. Born in Delia, Alberta, she was 87. Sally was the devoted and beloved wife (67 years married) of Norman who predeceased her in 2010. Sally was also predeceased by her infant son, Jack, her son John McMurchie (Mac) and much loved daughter-in-law Georgia Brown, her parents John and Jessie McMurchie of Delia, Alberta and recently, her sister Jackie Purkis of Victoria. Mum was the pillar of our family, providing unconditional love, pride and support for each of us. Her grace and integrity supported the entire family through both the good and hard times. In early years when Dad was very ill, Sally worked at the Bay in Calgary. Later, she enjoyed selling new homes in the Red Deer Area and was awarded for sales in the Bower community. Mum was also the accountant for Hugh and Rob's Mainly Music store when Mum and Dad "retired" to Vancouver. Sally was a passionate gardener who created beautiful showcases of colour and scent in each of the homes she and Norman lived in. Every guest to their home left with a bouquet. Her chocolate cake was legendary as was her Texas hash and our mum loved strawberry anything. Sally will be loved and cherished forever by her children Sharyn Brown (Gerry Nufer), Hugh Brown (Colleen), Valerie Steinbach (Gord), Lorna Sarah (Ed Frere) and Robert Brown (Elena). She will hold a special place in the hearts of her five grandsons and always treasured by her eleven granddaughters and eleven great- grandchildren with two more on the way.
Mum, we love you and are all happy
to know you are now reunited with Dad.
You will always be part of the beautiful
prairie landscape, sunny skies and
vast wild-flowered foothills you loved.
The family gratefully acknowledges Norma Hermo for her dedicated care of Mum for the past two years. We also thank Jane, Wevelyn and Melinda for their care. The family also wishes to express their gratitude to Dr. Deon Voerster for helping us keep our Mum in her home as she wished. A Memorial Service for Mum will be held on April 8, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. at the First Baptist Church in Olds, Alberta.
