Alice Brown

September 27, 1920 - January 15, 2014


Alice was born Sept. 27, 1920 in New Aberdour, Scotland completing her required schooling there.  During the ensuing years, Alice contributed to the war effort by working in a parachute factory and serving at the Servicemens Canteen. During these volunteer sessions, Alice met her future husband, James J. Brown, a pilot with the RAF. They were married a few short months later in 1940.


As many war families did, Alice and Jim emigrated to Canada in 1955, with their young son James, and took up residence in Marathon, Ontario. Jim worked as a Millwright, James went to school making his mother proud of his sports abilities and Alice made her contribution to the family by working as a clerk at Chapple’s Hardware Store. This job helped her to make the transition to her new life in Canada.


In 1957, the Brown family moved to Duncan, where Jim Brown became a member of the start team at the Crofton Pulp and Paper Mill.


Alice was a proud Past Worthy Matron of the Order of Eastern Star for over 50 years and Past Matron of the Sunset Chapter 44 Duncan.


Alice and Jim traveled extensively in their retirement visiting California and Hawaii many times, until Jim’s passing in 2004.


The frailties of aging took its toll in her final years, and Alice joined her husband on January 15, 2014.


She leaves to mourn her passing, her son James (Jim) Brown and wife Diane.


As we honor her wishes, there will not be a service. The family extends her request to donate to a charity of your choice if you so desire.
