BROWN--Sarah Lynn, died unexpectedly on August 17, 2013. She will be remembered with love by her family: Sarah M. Brown, Ivan E. Brown, Donna Seelig, Laura Chappell-Brown and her many friends. Our lives were enhanced by her thoughtfulness, generosity, and grace. Her smile warmed our hearts. Her conversation and wit enlivened our minds. She sought challenge in her professional life, most recently as a founder and Partner of Oceanic Partners which focused on connecting international hospitals to North American health care payers. From 2008 to 2012 she was a Senior Vice President of ICC Lowe where she provided best practices consulting for drug commercialization. Sarah Lynn was a graduate of The Spence School -1991 and The University of Texas-1995. She loved movies, ballet, opera, and travel. She read widely and could always recommend a good book based upon her own classification system: airplane books or everything else. A Memorial Service to remember Sarah Lynn will be held in Brooklyn Heights in mid October. Gifts in memory of Sarah Lynn may be made to: The Brown Ledge Foundation, 25 Wilson St., Burlington, VT 05401.
