Marilyn May (Sievert) Brown
Born in Lafayette Township, MN on May 19, 1925, Marilyn May (Sievert) Brown passed away on Sept. 29, 2013 at the age of 88.
She is preceded in death by many loved ones: husband George Sr., brother Orville, father Edwin, mother Adeline and granddaughter Kelly.
Strong and determined until her end, she reluctantly left so many including all seven of her beloved children: George Jr. (Debbie), Don (Kim), Linda McGough (John), Mary, Nancy Carrier (Pete), Vicki Jo, David (Lisa) as well as 13 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren. She was dearly loved and her family was her most prized possession.
Marilyn spent most of her life in and around New Ulm, but made Stillwater her home for the past 37 years. She was a devoted member of her church, spoke New Ulm German, and had a snow-village collection beyond compare. Caring for others was her life’s work. She was fearless in her travel so long as it meant spending time with the family she so cherished.
A memorial service will be held at First United Methodist Church in Stillwater on Friday, Oct. 18 at 11 a.m. Visitation will be held one hour prior. Interment will take place at the Old Cemetery in New Ulm on Saturday, Oct.r 19 at 11 a.m.; friends are welcome to attend.
Memorials in Marilyn’s honor are preferred to the First United Methodist Church in Stillwater or to The Gathering Hospice in gratitude and support of their extraordinarily compassionate care.
