    I knew Mrs Brown for most of my life. She brought so much joy to everyone she met. The past couple years at the cottage were not the same. Memories of her will be cherished by my family and friends. Still trying to picture her lighting the illegal fireworks at the last Lorton Brothers Party Season party. She never missed the parties.

    She was probably my favorite teacher, Class of 66. She made school fun. Sorry to hear of her passing.

    Mrs brown was such a great lady , I have so many memories of her. I purposely took her classes just to be in her class. I always looked for her when I came home to visit . I went to the school 1 time j in 91 ust to stop by and thank her for her being her and such a great influence. But she had retired. I will never forget when I got a wks in school suspension for nit *telling* on a friend. how she not only brought me lunches everyday for a wk , she also brought me homework from my other classes so I wouldn’t get behind. I wish I could have seen her .
