Helen V. Brown (Morris), beloved wife of the late Ronald Brown, passed away on March 22, 2024, at the age of 86.

Helen was born in West Coleman, Alta., on July 3, 1937, to Adam and Mary Morris. She was predeceased by her loving husband, Ronald Brown, her parents and her sister, Joan. She graduated from the Coleman High School (now a museum).

She taught at Central School, Coleman, from 1956 to 1959. And then taught at St. Michael’s School in Pincher Creek, Grade 2, from 1959 to 1965. Then taught kindergarten from 1966 to 1968. She has many stories and fond memories of “her children” in those years.

She married her very best friend and her “Mr. Wonderful,” Ronald Brown, on Aug. 22, 1959. They were married for 58 years and were inseparable, working together at their business endeavours and in all their travels. Side by side.

She would like to thank the three cousins that kept in touch over the years, Al and Rudy Szymanek and Wayne Krywolt, as well as the great girls that lived on Mountain Street, Cathy, Carol, Kizzy and Luana, who were like daughters to her. She would also like to thank the three ladies that had helped her with her garage sale after the passing of Ronald, Marianne, Edie and Carol.

Also thank you to Maureen, who stopped in to check on an old lady and made her day special frequently, and to her neighbours of many years, Cal and Maggie, and Jerry and all the other friends for taking time and looking after us.

We had a great life!

At Helen’s request, no service will be held.

Condolences may be sent through Eden’s Funeral Home.
