1925-2021 ~ Marybeth Brown passed away on March 28, 2021. She was born in Edmonton in 1925, and lived a rich life spanning 96 years. She was married to her husband Bill for approximately 45 years. Marybeth dearly loved her two adult children, Barbara and Gordon, and her grandchildren Mckenzie, Clayton, and Mitchell, as well as her daughter-in-law Sue.
For over 40 years Marybeth worked as a Laboratory Technologist at Lions Gate Hospital in North Vancouver, where she lived with her family.
After retiring, Marybeth embraced her new life to the fullest, pursuing a number of interests such as travelling, bird watching, family history/genealogy, and enjoying the many board games that she loved, such as crib, bridge, and scrabble.
During her retirement years, she and Bill moved to several parts of Vancouver Island before settling into Nanaimo. Bill passed away in 2013, and after that Marybeth lived at Lakeside Gardens and then later at Dufferin Place.
Our family wants to thank the caring staff at both of these places who so kindly supported Marybeth in her later years.
Marybeth was known for her bright smile, quick wit and great sense of humour. She will be very sorely missed.
