Obituary of Lois Mary Brown

It is with heavy hearts that the family of Lois Mary Brown, wife of the late John "Jack" Francis Brown, announce her passing, which occurred peacefully on Tuesday, May 22nd, 2018, at her residence at the Church of St. John and St. Stephen Nursing Home. Born August 28th, 1929 in Saint John, she was a daughter of the late James Edward and Elsie Marie (Melanson) Biddiscombe. Lois grew up in the North End of Saint John, graduating from Saint John Vocational High School. She worked as a secretary at McAvity’s, on Rothesay Avenue. Many years later, she worked at Moe’s Fruit Market along with her brother James (Birdie). Lois was a devout Catholic, meeting her husband Jack at the Tuesday evening Novenas’ at Saint Peter’s Church. They were married in 1953 and spent 61 beautiful years together. Lois was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister and friend. She will be greatly missed by everyone who knew her. She was a loving grandmother to Vicky, Grant, Catherine and Adam. Lois’ passion was being a stay-at-home mom and raising her children, which gave her much joy and happiness. She was a great supporter of her children - cheering on Mike playing baseball; supporting Paul racing horses; and sharing family recipes and knitting lessons with Sharon. Lois was a regular member of St. Peter’s Bowling League and Bridge Club. Lois was quite proud to share the Winners circle with Paul at Exhibition Park and cheer on her Saint John Flames, with Jack, as a Season ticket holder. Lois was an expert knitter, making beautiful cowichan sweaters, angora hats and mittens for family members. An excellent cook, she hosted many family gatherings at her home and summer cottage. Lois and Jack were inseparable and when not spending time with their children and family could be seen feeding the ducks at Rockwood Park. Lois is survived by her children: Paul Brown of Saint John, Sharon Sudsbear (Tom) of Ottawa, ON and Michael Brown (Leah) of Mahone Bay, NS; grandchildren Victoria "Vicky" Graham (Ryan) of Edmonton, AB, Grant McNeill of Calgary, AB, Catherine Sudsbear of Halifax, NS and Adam Klinger of Halifax, NS; great granddaughters: Marlee Anne Klinger and Nora Charlotte Graham; sister Carol Lunney (Dan) of Riverview, NB; sisters-in-law: Kay Biddiscombe and Lois Biddiscombe of Saint John, NB and Margaret McGarrity of Peterborough, ON; brother-in-law Michael Brown of Saint John, NB; several nieces and nephews. Besides her parents and loving husband, Lois was predeceased by her brothers Earl and James. The family would like to extend a special thank you to Kim Brown, Lois’ nurse for many years, along with all the staff at the Church of St. John and St. Stephen Nursing Home who provided Lois with excellent care. Lois is resting at Brenan’s Funeral Home, 111 Paradise Row, Saint John (634-7424), with visiting on Sunday, May 27th, 2018 from 2 to 4 pm. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated from St. Peter’s Church, 50 Clarendon Street, on Monday, May 28th, 2018 at 11am. Interment will take place in St. Joseph’s Cemetery with a reception to follow at St. Peter’s Church Hall.
