Marie A. (Pena) Brown Obituary
Marie A. Brown (Pena)
Mom was born January 16, 1922 to Jose Pena and Eufalia Perea Pena in Albuquerque, New Mexico. She worked at Rancho Los Amigos Hospital in Downey as a Housekeeper/Custodian, retiring after 17 years. Mom loved traveling, visited Europe twice, and took several trips across the country in the RV with son Stan. She liked knitting, leaving behind blankets for us to remember her by. In her later years, she liked reading until 3 days before her passing, and Dancing with the Stars, during which she passed away on May 6, 2013 at her home in Victorville at 91 years of age.
Mom was preceded in death by sister Erlinda Silva, and former husband Nicholas "Red" Brown. Mom is survived by children Steve Brown and Robin Rittich (who mom considered family) of Apple Valley, Christine Brown of Victorville, Jim (Debra) Brown of Chandler, Arizona, Stanley Brown of Victorville, and Carol Perez (Isaiah) of Yucaipa. She is also survived by granddaughters Amber, Rachel, and Gretchen Brown and Allison Perez.
Special thanks to Stanley and Christine Brown for taking such good care of Mom in the short weeks and days before her passing.
A celebration of her life will be held at Golden Corral, 12845 Main St. Hesperia, on Friday, May 17, 2013 at 1:00 p.m.
