The Guest Book is expired.
Peacefully on February 11, 2013 at Hotel Dieu Grace Hospital at the age of 86, with her daughter holding her hand. Predeceased by her loving husband of 57 years, Prof. J. Maxwell Brownlie (2007). Survived by daughter Heather, son Ian and wife Mary. Cherished Grandma of Dale, Leah and Cole. Dear sister of Anna Arner and her late husband Arthur. She will be missed by her 10 nieces and nephews. Meta was a graduate of Windsor Business College. Her first job was packaging potato chips in a factory at the corner of Gladstone and Lincoln. She pursued a successful career as an administrative assistant in charge of the stenographic pool at Sterling Products and later as administrative assistant to the President of Motorola Products. Her early working life was primarily in Montreal before returning to Windsor in 1958 with Max. She was an active member of the Beta Sigma Phi Sorority for over 50 years and enjoyed a good party with "the girls", drives, visits to Troy Michigan and a good laugh. Meta had an infectious smile. She was a wonderful mother, grandmother, and also a fabulous cook and seamstress in her day. The family would like to thank the many nurses and doctors from Hotel Dieu Grace Hospital, Devonshire Retirement Home, Malden Park and the Rose Garden Villa Physical Rehab Unit who helped Meta throughout the past year. If you so desire, donations to the J. Maxwell Brownlie Excellence in Finance Scholarship at the University of Windsor would be appreciated by the family.
