Maria Brown (nee Amann) 1967 – 2024
Maria (wife of Ken Brown, deceased) died peacefully at Bethell Hospice in Inglewood, Ontario, Stella by her side, after a lengthy battle with cancer on Tuesday, January 9th. She is survived by her siblings in Austria, brothers Andi Angerer and partner Barbara, Klaus Amann and wife Monika, and her sister Kony Amann, as well as by her sister Bernadette Stroemhaell and husband Sven, in Sweden. She is also survived by nieces, nephews and cousins in Europe, as well as her extended family, Ingrid Gingell, Simon Baines and Susan Ives, in England.
Maria is also survived by numerous friends who have constituted her Canadian family and who have surrounded her with love and companionship since 1987.
Maria was a remarkable woman with a kind, loving, generous heart. She was compassionate, intelligent, hardworking, forthright, fearless and adventurous. She was a woman who loved travel, music, good food and drink, going for walks, and the company of friends, and of course, there was a special, deep love for her husband, Ken, and her darling dog, Stella.
We cannot measure the hole left in the hearts of those she has left behind, but her capacity for love of her family and friends, and the respect of colleagues, will linger in the hearts and minds of those whose lives she has touched. Rest in peace, sweet Maria – aka Frau Brown!
At Maria’s request, she is to have a simple cremation and no service. She has suggested that if anyone wants to do something in remembrance of her, that they adopt a child or pet if that can be done responsibly, plant a tree, donate to an animal shelter or animal adoption agency, or donate to Bethell Hospice Foundation.
