Obituary for Rosemary C. Brown

Rosemary C.  Brown
Rosemary C. Brown, age 89, of Stow, MA, passed away peacefully in the loving company of her family on Monday, July 16, 2018. Rosemary was born on June 16, 1929, in Salem, MA, to Thomas J. Carroll and Rose Anna (Jeanotte) Carroll. Rosemary graduated from St. Mary’s High School in Salem, in 1946, and earned an Associate Degree in 1976, from Marion Court Junior College, in Swampscott, MA. As a young woman, Rosemary studied classical voice and was an accomplished singer and pianist, and earned a scholarship to Boston Conservatory. Later, Rosemary worked as a legal secretary, she was also a devoted army wife, homemaker and faithful volunteer at Symmes Hospital, in Arlington, MA.

Rosemary married her childhood sweetheart and the love of her life Edward (Ebbie) A. Brown, also of Salem, on June 8, 1952; shortly after he graduated from West Point. They traveled extensively while in the Army and then settled in Salem, Lexington, then Stow, MA. Rosemary and Ebbie recently celebrated 66 years of marriage and shared a 77 year journey of friendship and love. Caring for her family and pet dogs was Rosemary’s passion and delight. She also enjoyed gardening, skiing, decorating, sewing, baking and collecting antique dishes and figurines. One of Rosemary’s greatest joys was sharing her love of classical voice with her grandson Teddy.

In addition to her devoted husband, Rosemary leaves behind her daughter, Sharon D. Brown and her husband Thomas J. Coughlin, Jr. of Stow, MA, and her grandson Edward (Teddy) A. G. Coughlin, of Cambridge, MA.

Rosemary’s family wishes to sincerely thank the special people who provided support, compassion and extraordinary care for Rosemary from Ascend Hospice and TandemCare Associates. They truly were a gift to Rosemary and her family.

A service celebrating Rosemary’s life will be private, followed by a burial close to home at Brookside Cemetery, in Stow. In lieu of flowers the family has requested a donation be made in her memory to Longy School of Music of Bard College, 27 Garden Street, Cambridge, MA, 02138, or at
