Logan - Loa McFarland Brown, 86, passed away in Logan on Friday, May 30, 2014. She was born in Logan on Aug. 22, 1927, to Merrill R. and Naomi J. McFarland, the second of six children. She attended Logan City schools and graduated from Logan High in 1945. On June 26, 1946, she married Francis S. Brown ("Mutt") in a double-ring ceremony with their best friends, Bill and Betty Burr. In 1959, they were sealed in the Logan Temple.
Loa worked for Mountain Bell Telephone Co. (where she was called "Mama Loa") and Utah Mortgage Loan and First Security Realty, retiring in 1984. She is a member of the William B. Preston camp of the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers and a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Loa was a mother to more than her children. She and Mutt enjoyed traveling and camping together. Their favorite place to relax was at their family property, "the GetAway," in Idaho where they enjoyed being together with many family members.
Loa is survived by five children: Peggy (Doug, deceased) Berry of Salt Lake City, Bob and Jone Brown of Smithfield, David and Kathy Brown of Liberty, Dennis and Yvonne Brown of Syracuse, and Randy and Linda Brown of Salem, Oregon; a foster daughter, Susie Davis of Hyrum; brothers Bob, Bill and Larry McFarland, and a sister, Christie Humphreys. She has 19 grandchildren and 52 great-grandchildren with two on the way.
She was preceded in death by a brother (Jack), a son-in-law, two grandchildren, and one great-grandchild.
