Brown, Joan Simons  
Joan Simons Brown 1929 - 2016 Joan Simons Brown was surrounded by loving family on this past Good Friday when she slipped peacefully out of this life and into the next one. Joan Corliss Gardiner was born in New York City in 1929 and raised in Washington, DC. She graduated from Mt. Vernon Seminary in Washington, DC, and went on to graduate from Radcliffe College as an English major. During her four years in Cambridge, Joan developed an office romance with Thomas Cunningham Simons, while both were working together as business managers of The Harvard Crimson. Married shortly after graduation, Joan Gardiner Simons and her husband Tom moved to California where he launched his career in the insurance business. They had four children in the years that followed: Tom, who lives in South Carolina and Gloucester, Mass; Martha, who lives in South Londonderry, VT; Sarah, who lives in Woodside, CA; and John, who lives in Briarcliff Manor, NY. Joan was predeceased by her sister, Jean Luckett Schmitt. During her husband's insurance career, Joan transcended the role of corporate wife, relishing her responsibility and their partnership. In fact, a former colleague of her husband said, "She was the all time greatest corporate wife. She remembered everybody's name and she treated everybody with respect." A sister-in-law would occasionally admit, "It is no contest. Joan Simons is the brightest light in this family. Hands down." Though Joan's traditional role was demanding, she forged her own identity as the Simons family moved to the Hartford area and then to Louisville, KY. She was a founding Board member of The Westledge School in West Simsbury, CT. She served as Chair of the Board at The Hartford College for Women, as well as on the Bellarmine University and Berea College Boards. Joan also served on the Louisville Water Company Board. Shortly after her husband Tom died in 1988, Joan married James K. Brown, whose wife was recently deceased. Former college classmates, they settled in Briarcliff Manor, spending summers in South Londonderry, VT. For the past few years Joan and Jim Brown made their primary home at The Osborn in Rye, NY. Joan developed her talent and competitive spirit on the golf courses of The Hartford Golf Club, The Louisville Golf Club, The Ekwanok Golf Club in Manchester, VT, and The Sleepy Hollow Golf Club in Briarcliff Manor. She delighted in her membership in both the Green Mountain Girls (Manchester, VT) and the National Society of Colonial Dames. In her later years, nothing gave Joan greater joy than when any of her children and grandchildren from both marriages would come calling. She was interested in, unconditionally supportive of, and totally devoted to every aspect of their lives. Joan Simons Brown spent her last days of this life in a room festooned with dozens of pictures of her kids, grandchildren and spouses. They are testimony to the richness of her life and the sustenance that she received from the people she loved and the people who loved her. Services were held at All Saints' Episcopal Church, 201 Scarborough Road, Briarcliff Manor. In lieu of flowers, Joan's families have requested that donations can be made to the South Londonderry Free Library, 15 Old School Road, South Londonderry, VT 05155.

Shaw, Allen  
Allen H. Shaw 1924 - 2016 Allen Herbert Shaw died peacefully in his sleep at Westminster Manor on April 19. He was born in 1924 to Esther and Walter Shaw in Manchester, Vermont, the third of four children, siblings being: Elizabeth Shaw Powers, Catharine Shaw Erwin, and Douglas P. Shaw. He was a lifeguard, caddied, played golf, baseball and had many friends. He was the president of his senior class graduating from Burr and Burton High School in 1942. He went to Syracuse University and then the Navy sent him to Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute where he earned an electrical engineering degree. He married Marjorie Lake in 1948. Marjorie and Allen had four baby boomers Mary, Michael, Jane and Chris. The Shaw family settled in Armonk, NY and enjoyed the small town life as Allen commuted by car, train and subway to work in New York City every day for 40 years. Allen was very successful as an executive with the New York Telephone Company with an office on the lower west side of Manhattan. He still has a collection of personal notes given him by co-workers and subordinates at his retirement underscoring how well respected he was. Allen and Marjorie retired to Lakeway, Austin in 1987 to live near their two daughters and grandsons. They enjoyed playing bridge and golf with many new friends and were active in the community. As a volunteer tax-aide for AARP Allen assisted people in preparing their tax returns in East Austin. He answered the phone at the Lakeway City Hall, served as treasurer and wine steward for the Solos of Lakeway, and served on committees at the Emmaus Church. As a grandfather, Allen touched the lives of all of his 8 grandkids giving them memories to live by. The best train sets, card games, pure maple syrup, puzzles and driving golf balls from the tee just outside his backyard to name a few. After his wife passed Allen moved to Westminster in Austin where he made many new friends and reconnected with some old friends from Lakeway. It was there that he met Marion Lewis, who would become his sweetheart and an invaluable part of his support team. Speaking for the rest of the family, the children, grandchildren and great grand's we thank Allen for his support and leadership throughout our lives by his example of how to live a productive and loving life. We are very thankful for the love and care Allen got from the staff at the Arbour at Westminster. Most of all we are thankful that Allen was able to live with great dignity due to the love and care from Marion, Adam, Jane and Mary they were always there for him and made him feel special and made him feel loved. Allen is survived by his four children: Mary Shaw Sondgeroth and son-in-law, Dan of Austin; Jane Shaw Lewis, and son-in-law, Paul of Austin; Michael Shaw of Columbia, SC; and Christopher Shaw and daughter-in-law Catherine of Durham, NC. His grandchildren: Adam and Parker Lewis, Megan, Kristen, Connor and Michael Shaw, Angela Smith and Allison Adelhardt, and great-grandchildren: Brice Smith, and Olivia and Brady Adelhardt. FUNERAL NOTICE: Memorial Service will be held in Harris Bell Hall at Westminster on Jackson Avenue in Austin at 11:00 on May 9 followed by a short reception and then burial of ashes at Lakeway Church Memorial Garden on 2203 Lakeway Blvd at 1:30.
