Obituary of Susan Brown

Susan (Sue) Joyce Brown age 76, peacefully passed away on Tuesday, December 26, 2017 in Bellingham, WA surrounded by loved ones. She was born on July 27, 1941 in Victoria BC to Burr & June Alley. Sue graduated from Bellingham High School and married Walter Brown on October 14, 1961. She was a loving wife, mother and grandmother.  Sue worked at the Bellingham Golf and Country Club both as an Office Manager and Bar Manager for 39 years.  Sue was a social butterfly both in her personal and professional life. She enjoyed being surrounded with people and creating meaningful relationships with cheerful conversations, food and a good VO drink (or two) at the end of the day.   Sue also had a passion for adventure and traveled to Tibet, China, Africa, Ireland, Australia, Peru and many other places. She adored living on Lake Whatcom which meant sunny summer days spent with her family and friends enjoying boat rides, floating on an inner tube (without getting her hair wet) and watching birds from the window!  She touched many lives and will be missed.
 
Sue is proceeded in death by her daughter Cindy Brown; husband Walter Brown; sister Kathy Smith and both her parents (Burr and June Alley)
 
Sue is survived by her two daughters Lisa and Christy Brown and granddaughter Jessica Brown and 3 nephews (Greg, Mike and Eric Smith)
 
Please join us for a celebration of Sue’s life  on January 21st from 1 to 3PM at the Bellingham Golf and Country Club.
