Jeanne Ann Brown

Jeanne Brown, longtime resident of Craig, passed away Tuesday, March 24 in Denver of complications of pneumo- nia. Born in Harlan, Iowa on July 30, 1917, she was raised in Madison, Nebraska by Preston and Lela Palmer with her sister Louise and brother Jack. She attended Wayne State Teachers College and became a teacher in Randolph, Nebraska and there met Asher Brown, her husband of forty-seven years. They moved to Craig in 1952, where she resided until 2013 when she moved to Denver. She worked at the Moffat
County clerk and recorder's office and taught in the Craig Public Schools for many years. She was active in the community, serving and hold- ing membership in Eastern Star, PEO, League of Women Voters, Yampa Valley Golf Course, First Congregational Church, and other community organizations. Her interest in international travel led to a travel business which provided a gateway to the nation and the world for many residents of Craig and northwestern Colorado. She is survived by her sons Stephen and Douglas
(Denise) of Denver, grand- children Paul, Holly Ramby (Norm), Steven (Beckie),
and Rebecca Brown Wright (Douglas), and great-grand- sons Benjamin, Mason, Wade, Jonah, and Skyler.
