Obituary for Gloria Marie Brown

Gloria Brown, February 4, 1932 – January 13, 2018

Gloria was born in Seattle, WA to John and Isabel Breda. She was the oldest of 5 children. Gloria and her sister, Shirley, moved to Kent and were lovingly welcomed into the Wenham family and lived with the family until adulthood.

She graduated from Kent-Meridian High School in 1950. Following high school she enrolled in Cornish School of Music (now known as Cornish School of Allied Arts). Gloria worked for a short time for Kenworth of Seattle, then became a homemaker after her firstborn child. After her children had grown, Gloria studied to become a commercial space designer and enjoyed exercising her creative talents. She also collaborated with the Kent Planning Commission in the 1970s.

Gloria married Robert Brown, Jr. in Kent on August 4, 1951 (married 30 years). Gloria was a loving mother to 5 children and is survived by them and their spouses; Gail (Loren), Sheila, Terrill (Ernie), Tim (Karen) and Linda. She is also survived by 5 grandchildren; Blaine, Holly, Hayley, Spencer and Christopher and 3 great grandchildren; Sofie, Evelyn and Madeleine. She is preceded in death by her parents, three of her siblings (Donna, Richard and Patsy) and son-in-law (Burt).

Gloria was remembered as a fun loving social person with a happy smile and a ready laugh, and that laugh mostly resulting in happy tears. She was talented in all she did, whether it was her playing the piano, home décor, cooking or sewing quilts. She enjoyed skiing and being in the mountains and camping trips with family and friends. The family enjoyed many years at the Birch Bay cabin they built, beachcombing and clam digging was especially a favorite of hers. She will be greatly missed by all, and will live on in the hearts of loved ones.
Per Gloria’s request, in lieu of services, a gathering of family and close friends will be held at a later date.
