Virginia O. Brown, 92
Native Islander
The family of Virginia Onorata Brown is saddened to announce her death this past Sunday, June 21,2020. She was born July 13, 1927 to Frank and Catherine Onorata on Staten Island, where she remained a life-long resident. Virginia was married to Edward R. Brown, who pre-deceased her in 1956. She is survived by three children, Veronica, Edward, and Stephen. Her fourth child, Kenneth, died in 2015. His ashes are to be interred with her.
In addition to raising her own four children as a single parent, Virginia served the children of New York City as a Board of Education resource room teacher. Her career spanned decades, and she had earned two masters' degrees in the field before retiring. Her example of fortitude, focus, and persistence will be missed.
A Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Thursday, June 25, 2020, at 10 a.m. at Blessed Sacrament Church, Forest Avenue, Staten Island. Subsequent burial at St. Peter's Cemetery. Family requests donations to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in lieu of flowers.

Our thoughts and sympathy are with the family, so sorry for your loss. We enjoyed getting to know Virginia a little when she was in Vancouver years ago. She was a bright light, easy to talk with and had great sense of humour.
