Condolences Left For Marilyn Browy

What I always think of is her great smile, and the time I spent at your house when we were children. Please know that you are in our prayers.

Brenda (Junge) and Dale Sondag, Belleville, IL, 62226

My deepest sympathy to all the family members.

Sue Joellenbeck, Belleville, Illinois, 62223

I’m out of town for my granddaughters confirmation so will not be able to attend.

Marilyn and Bob were good friends of my parents since 1958 when they were members of the Belleville racing pigeons club. I have many fond memories of Marilyn and Bob from time at the club, of them playing cards at my parents home and how kind and helpful she was to my mom in the weeks and months prior to my mom’s passing.

Marilyn and her family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Peggy Webb, Belleville, IL,

Marilyn (or Grandma Browy as we all called her!) was a truly lovely person. We were so lucky to have spent time with her this summer really getting to know her. She was the type of person who seemed to appreciate the little things, was gracious, and always had a smile on her face. If ever there was a person prepared a spot in heaven I have no doubt there is a room for her. She will be missed by our family and many others I have no doubt. That said I can only imagine that she is resting peacefully and enjoying the rewards of life well lived.
