Tribute & Message From The Family

Maureen S. Brown, 85, of Manchester, died Tuesday May 19th, 2020 at Catholic Medical Center after a long struggle with MS and recent COVID-19 diagnosis.
Born in Manchester on June 4, 1933, she was the daughter of Frank M and Katherine (Poehlman) Sullivan. She was educated in local schools and graduated as class valedictorian from St. Joseph High School for Girls.
Prior to the onset of her illness, she worked for many years in insurance, mostly at the Marcotte and Plourde Insurance Agency.
Maureen was a devout Catholic, an avid sports fan who loved the Patriots, Celtics and, especially, the Red Sox. She was an intelligent woman who had a keen interest in politics and current events. Most of all she always cherished spending time with her family and lifelong friends.
She was predeceased by her husband Clinton F. Brown and two brothers, Francis L. Sullivan and Robert B Sullivan.
Family members include her son, Michael C. Brown of Manchester; her sister-in-law Cecile Sullivan and many nieces, nephews and friends.
Due to the pandemic funeral services will be private. Her family would like to thank the wonderful staff at Ridgewood Center Nursing Home for the many years of loving care they provided Maureen.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her memory to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, 101A First Ave, Waltham, MA 02451.
Lambert Funeral Home & Crematory is assisting with arrangements.

Sorry to hear of Maureen's passing. I remember she was a close friend of my Aunt Ann Kasabian Freeman. Another of their mutual friends Doris Pratt Body passed away last week as well also 85yo. I hope they are all together now with a beautiful bright and happy light shining upon them. RIP

Maureen was a wonderfully warmhearted, intelligent lady. Despite her struggles with MS, Maureen continued to put on a smile and face the day. She was devout in her Catholic faith and was a caring mother. Maureen was lovingly cared for by Michael and will be dearly missed. May God grant you eternal peace.

Mrs. Brown always welcomed me into her home with a smile. Her intelligence and academic achievement were second to none. She was an outstanding citizen. This earthly world is a lesser place without her. She will be missed by many, especially by her son Michael.
Warmest regards,
Patrick L. Mead

Mike, please accept my deepest sympathy for your loss. One of my 1st employers (at age 18) told me to always remember that "You Only Get One Mom". I considered my mom to be my "Best Friend" and I have reason to believe that you did, as well. I can remember many nights when you made visiting you mom a "High Priority". I sensed that visiting your mom was the highlight of many of your days (and certainly the highlight of many of your mom's). I am certain that she will be missed and that she has every reason to be proud of, and grateful for, you as her son.

Michael Brown and family, I am so very sorry for your loss. Even though I unfortunately never had the pleasure of meeting Maureen, I feel after reading about her here I was able to know a small part of her and who she was. I also know that her son Michael Brown truly adored her. I will forever be great full of the memories he has stared with me of his beautiful mother. Dressed to the nine and always always there for her son.
