Brown, n?e Lamontagne, age 87 of Jupiter, FL and Southbury, CT died peacefully on September 7, 2018 surrounded by her family after a long battle with cardiac and pulmonary problems.

She retired from Westover School in Middlebury, CT in 1998 where she worked for 28 years.

Following her retirement from Westover, she and Don became residents of Jupiter, FL and maintained a summer home at Heritage Village in Southbury, CT.

She also enjoyed serving on the Finance Committee at St. John of the Cross Church in Middlebury, CT for several years. Jeannette was a devoted mother and is survived by daughters Tricia Brown (husband CJ Karbowicz) of Avon, CT and Jupiter, FL and Kathleen Brown-Carrano (husband Matthew Carrano, Jr.) of Middlebury, CT and three grandchildren Devin Brown Karbowicz, Ryan Brown Karbowicz and Michael Brown Carrano.
