Sadly, and suddenly, Ivy Brown, who once liked to be referred to as Elizabeth, passed away on the evening of Saturday March 2, 2019 at Markham Stouffville Hospital just shy of her 90th birthday. Predeceased by her husband Joseph (Joe) Brown. Loving mother of Gary and Chris (Joanne) and dedicated and devoted grandmother to Allyson. Sister of Freddy, Johnny, twins Nellie and Gwen and Dennis. In England, she worked as a receptionist (but wished she was a “Lady Detective”). After making it through World War II, marrying Joe and coming to Canada in the early 1950’s, she first was a great homemaker but later became a beautiful painter.
In memory of Ivy and in lieu of flowers, donations to the Toronto Humane Society or the Alzheimer Society of Ontario would be appreciated by the family.
A very special thanks to the wonderful staff at Sunrise of Unionville and the caring medical team at Markham Stouffville Hospital.
