Sadie Brown (nee Pruner) passed away peacefully with her family by her side on Nov. 10, 2004 at the Winchester District Memorial Hospital. She was 92.
She was the loving wife of the late William C. “Bill” Brown. She was the cherished mother of Lillian (Garnet Johnston) and Anna (Wytze Van Der Veen). She will be sadly missed by 11 grandchildren (and spouses), 17 great-grandchildren and several great-great-grandchildren.
She was predeceased by sisters Clara (the late Henry Stata) and Laura (the late George Barclay), and by brother-in-law George Brown (the late Iris), and sisters-in-law Minnie (the late Clarence Deeks), Etta (the late Will Alexander), Edith (the late Fred Shaver), Tena Kerr, Ruth (the late Manley Halladay) and Ida (the late Frank Cross). She will be sadly missed by many nieces and nephews, neighbors and friends. Special thanks to the staff at the Dundas Manor.
In younger days Sadie loved square dancing, playing cards, and her family. She was always a supportive wife, mother and grandmother. She came to enjoy the life provided by caregivers at Dundas Manor and loved to hear and tell a joke with staff. She made fast friends with her three different roommates and worried over their welfare. Although an unassuming lady, she will be missed by friends and family.
She rested at the Winchester Funeral Home in Winchester where visitation was held on Nov. 12. The funeral service was held in the chapel of the funeral home on Nov. 13. Burial followed at Maple Ridge Cemetery in Chesterville.
For those wishing, donations to either the Activity Fund of the Dundas Manor or to the Winchester Baptist Church would be gratefully acknowledged by the family.
